The Egyptian people have been betrayed yet again by Hosni Mubarak, who still refuses to step down. Furious, they have responded in a loud and clear voice: MUBARAK MUST STEP DOWN!!!

On the 17th day of growing demonstrations, it's time for President Obama to echo their demand—loudly and clearly. And time for us to tell Obama and Congress: The U.S. government must stand with the Egyptian people, call for Mubarak to resign and immediately cut off all funds to the Egyptian government until Mubarak leaves.

Our CODEPINK delegation in Cairo was privileged to witness this historic uprising. We cried with the mothers of some of the 300 Egyptians who have been killed in this struggle. We expressed our sorrow to the thousands who have been wounded. We brought flowers to the heroes who have been out on the streets, day after day, to transform the nation they so love.

Now we are back home, determined to transform our government's policy. For 30 years our tax dollars have shored up this regime. Enough is enough. We must demand that not one more dollar go to this desperate dictator who is clinging to power.

Will you contact President Obama and your Congressperson today and tell them to stop supporting this regime?
Call the President at 202-456-1111 between 9am-5pm and call Congress at 202-225-3121. Email your elected officials here.

This beautiful revolution could easily turn into a bloodbath. Mubarak can once again send out his thugs, with even greater viciousness. The military might turn against the people. The entire world must now turn up the pressure.

Please call the White House and Congress NOW. Demand an end to all U.S. funds. Tell President Obama to echo the call of the Egyptian people. Mubarak and his regime must resign immediately!

With urgency,
Medea, Ali, Billy, Chelsea, Farida, Felice, Jase, Jean, Janet, Jodie, Kit, Kristen, Nancy, Rae, Shaden, Sharat and Tighe
