Take the Peace Pledge--Fall Peace Offensive

In these slow days of summer, PDA is gearing up for a fall peace offensive. And we need every PDA activist or ally to spread the word that now is the time to contact House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and members of Congress to end the Iraq occupation.

Seventy members of Congress have already signed an open letter to President Bush stating they “will only support appropriating additional funds for U.S. military operations in Iraq during Fiscal Year 2008 and beyond for the protection and safe redeployment of all our troops out of Iraq.”

The Pledge for Peace campaign has to begin now because in September, Congress will be debating FY 2008 funding for military operations in Iraq. That is what prompted the 70 members of Congress to put Bush on public notice with their letter. We must grow that number from 70 to 100 to 150! [more]

The popularity of Democrats in Congress is dwindling as they allow the Iraq occupation to continue.

Let’s rally around those Congress members who are standing firm in using their power of the purse to carry out the voters will of disengagement from Iraq.

Are you in or out? Take the “Peace Pledge” now: Sign the Petition
