During the upcoming Democratic and Republican National Conventions, the eyes of the country will be focused on the political future of our nation. Let's not get caught up in the razzle-dazzle of corporate-funded convention shows, but recognize that real democracy means people organizing, from the streets to community forums to electoral politics, in a continuum of pressure from the bottom up. Both parties have led us down the path of militarism and neglected our basic needs, impoverishing our communities and endangering our security.

Now is the time to stand up for true peace and security--to demand that our government reverse military quagmires in the name of the war on terrorism; liberate us from the oil companies' polluting agenda and begin a serious offensive for conservation, efficiency and renewable energy; promote good jobs at living wages instead of pursuing cheap labor abroad; and transfer war funds to health care, clean energy and anti-poverty efforts at home and abroad.

Click here to read our detailed CODEPINK Platform for Peace and Security, and send it to DNC Chairperson Howard Dean and RNC Chairperson Mike Duncan to show them the true desires and needs of the American people in clear, thorough language. Please also send our Platform to at least five of your friends and colleagues and ask them to pass it along to the DNC and RNC chairs, as well.

A Fox News reporter recently stated, George Bush will eventually go back to Texas, but CODEPINK is here to stay. We will continue to be vocal advocates for the peaceful, prosperous and sustainable world we want to live in, no matter who is President next year. No single leader is a messiah; only we can lead us toward the future we desire, and we need to keep the power and voice of the people alive.

Thank you for adding to our collective voice and supporting our platform with your own strength and heart.
Alicia, Anne, Dana, Deidra, Desiree, Farida, Gael, Gayle, Jean, Jodie, Liz, Lori, Medea, Nancy, Rae and Tighe
