Dear CODEPINK Activist,
You probably wouldn't know it from the mainstream media, but on June 16, Congressman Conyers held an extraordinary hearing to draw attention to the Downing Street Memos and demand accountability from the Bush Administration. He then hand-delivered to the White House 560,000 signatures from Americans demanding answers.
Saturday, July 23rd will mark the third anniversary of the writing of the Downing Street Memo. Let's use that day to educate the public, push the media, and encourage our local representatives to call for a Congressional investigation.
Whether you decide to use one of the suggestions above or come up with something entirely new and original, do something to mark the day and let us-and your local press-know your plans.
With 6 out of every 10 Americans now calling for the full or partial withdrawal of US troops from Iraq, with new congressional resolutions calling for an exit strategy, and with renewed momentum by grassroots peace activists, the timing couldn't be better.
With hope that the truth will prevail,
Dana, Farida, Gael, Jodie, Medea, Nancy, Rae, and Tiffany
