It is time to stand up, take to the streets and make our voices heard over the drums of war. Short of a national strike (don't count on that), there will be responses planned in many cities across the United States. Check the Veterans for Peace Website for their Call to Action Against Afghanistan Troop Increase.
Find an event, call as many friends as you can, and get out and protest (nonviolently of course). Bring signs and banners. Get some musicians out there. Let's raise our voices for PEACE, because war is NOT the answer. And once we're done with that, we can get back to educating our members of Congress and the public about what we should be doing in Afghanistan (more on that in a subsequent post).
Peace (and Happy Thanksgiving),
We still need to flood The White House (and Congress) with phone calls telling the President to NOT send any more troops to Afghanistan. The toll free number for The White House is 1-888-310-8637. You can find phone numbers for your Representatives by clicking here.
