Dear CODEPINKer,

It's almost time to start knocking!

This Saturday, September 20th, tens of thousands of Americans will be knocking on neighbors' doors for peace. Won't you join us?

It's simple to participate: sign up online and you'll receive a list of your neighbors who are new or spotty voters. It's up to you to decide how many houses you want to visit or call by phone--we suggest at least twenty. It's a great way to build the peace vote while getting to know new neighbors.

To see the text of the petition you'll be asking your neighbors to sign, click here.

No matter who wins the election, the new president will be under tremendous pressure to keep the troops in Iraq, widen the war in Afghanistan, act tough with Iran and give unconditional support to Israel. We need to play a countervailing force advocating negotiations and diplomacy, not war. By building up the peace vote now, we will be more likely to get a president committed to peace, and we'll be laying the foundation for a strong anti-war movement that can effectively pressure the next administration and the next Congress.

So, grab your friends, sign up to get your walk sheet, print out our window sign, put on your pink and head out the door!

Flexing our fingers and warming up our voices for Saturday,
Dana, Deidra, Desiree, Farida, Gael, Gayle, Jean, Jodie, Liz, Lori, Medea, Nancy, and Rae

PS. When CODEPINK sent a delegation to Gaza, we were dismayed by the suffering of the people, but inspired by the grassroots leaders we met, including Dr. Eyad el-Serraj, head of the Gaza Community Mental Health Program (GCMHP). Dr. el-Serraj, who was imprisoned by both Israelis and Palestinians for speaking out against human rights violations, has asked our help in raising $50,000 to support the International Campaign to End the Siege of Gaza.Click here for details on the campaign and how to contribute.
