Mothers to deliver message of "Troops Home by the Holidays!"
Congress had a chance yesterday to reflect this overwhelming sentiment against
a war without end by voting for the McGovern bill, a bill that called for
troops to begin withdrawal in 90 days and complete it in 180 days.
WHEN: 10am- 1pm
WHERE: Independence Ave,
corner in between Longworth and Cannon then into the offices of all 57 Democrat
no votes in Cannon, Longworth, Rayburn
"The 57 Democrats who voted against this bill are not
representing the will of the people in this country or in Iraq." said CODEPINK
Cofounder, Medea Benjamin.
CODEPINK has been in the halls of Congress and in the local and national media
nearly every day with their creative actions. The surge in the CODEPINK DC
presence came in January, leading up to the 4 year anniversary of the war in
Iraq, when the organization decided to rent a 5-bedroom house near Capitol Hill
to be the base for daily actions in Congress. Every week, women—and men—have
been streaming in from around the country to join this dynamic group-
attracting the attention of the American people and media alike.
