THE WAR NOW!
Thanks to those of you who contributed to fund
our DC Pink House—now we
need you to join us in DC! We have a very small window of
opportunity to get Congress to vote against funding the War,
supporting the troops and bringing them home. The supplemental
will be voted on in March, we need to be a powerful presence
at every vote. We need to tell Congress if they fund it
they own it and can no longer blame Bush—it will
now be their war. In November they got the power to
act, let us remind them: use it or lose it!
JOIN US IN DC
8, International Women's Day, is a day to acknowledge and honor
women around the globe-our collective wisdom and strength.
This year, we want to raise our voices
in international chorus to stop the next war—a war with Iran—before
it has a chance to start.
ask women across the world to sign this message to the UN Security
Council, urging them to oppose any military action against Iran:
the women in the international community, are concerned about a
possible U.S. military attack on Iran. We have already seen the
disastrous consequences of the US invasion of Iraq, especially for
the women of that country, and we are determined to stop a similar
fate from befalling the women of Iran.
As we celebrate International Women's Day on March 8, we call upon
you, as countries with representation on the UN Security Council,
to oppose any military action against Iran.

or DC. You can also print out a copy of the letter here
and send it to the UN Security Council (140 East 45th Street, New
York, NY 10017).
CODEPINK groups in New
York and Washington

For anyone participating in a March 8 event, please take copies
of this letter with you and get women to sign
up. Those outside the US

home country for contact information. We are thrilled to make this
