Yesterday we went to Sen. Bernie Sanders office to give him our thanks--and a big hug--for filibustering against tax cuts for millionaires. This week we'll be standing up for Wikileaks and for an end to the wars that are draining our economy.
Tomorrow, Thursday we will start the morning at the House Judiciary Hearing on Wikileaks and then march to the Justice Department to deliver this message to Attorney General Eric Holder: Don't Go After Julian Assange, Prosecute the Real Criminals--the War Criminals!
Sign here to make sure your name is on the message we hand deliver.
Thursday is also the day we'll be joining with Veterans For Peace outside the White House in a solemn act of civil disobedience against the Afghan war. We hope you can join us in DC or with a local action near you. This action coincides with the war review being released by the National Security Council. The review is already being called a "formality," since the Administration is committed to keeping U.S. troops in Afghanistan until at least 2014. This goes against the will of the Afghan people, the majority of whom want the U.S. troops to leave. And it goes against the needs of the American people, who need jobs, homes and healthcare--not more war. We are proud to be standing with our vets in opposition to endless and senseless war.
