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.
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.
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.
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!
