Say NO to the
Bush Plan to Escalate!
To Find An Event
Bush is expected to give his "new direction in Iraq"
speech this Wednesday, January 10th -- and you won't like what he's
going to say. He wants to increase the number of troops on the ground
in Iraq, even though we just elected a new Congress with a mandate
to help get us out of there. We have to
make it clear that Americans do NOT want more troops in Iraq and
we have to act fast!
True Majority has created a coalition called AMERICA
SAYS NO. We will take to the streets together after Bush
makes his expected call for escalation in Iraq. Nancy
Pelosi has already sent a message to Bush saying NO
to this projected surge. Between our new Democratic Congress and
our loud collective voices, we need to stop this "surge"
with a stronger surge of protest.
week a CODEPINK
delegation is in Cuba to Say NO to Torture, NO to Guantanamo.
We have combined our protests against Guantanamo to include the
call for NO surge.
us in saying NO in your own community to the continued madness in
both Guantanamo and Iraq.
you join an event this week and help stop the surge?
here to find an event near you and if you can't find
one create your own. True
Majority has included tools to help you create an effective vigil,
add CODEPINK to the name of your event,
to let those in your community know where to find you.
have spent nearly $400 billion
on the war in Iraq and will spend half a trillion dollars by the
end of 2009 even if all U.S. troops were withdrawn next week. Deadly
attacks against American troops and Iraqi security forces continue
on a daily basis. The increasingly brutal occupation by American
troops provides insurgents with a constant stream of new recruits.
More boots on the ground is clearly not the answer, but President
Bush isn't listening to anyone -- not to the Baker Study Group,
not to the Generals running the show in Iraq, not to many Senators
and Congress people from his own party. In the face of this willful
deafness, we -- like the tiny people in Dr. Seuss's fable Horton
Hears A Who -- have to shout in unison
a loud and clear NO.
say YES to all of you as you stand with us to say NO to this insanity.
peace, love, and resolve,
