An important piece of legislation to end the wars in Afghanistan and Iraq. In short, call your representatives in Congress [masked]) and say:

"I urge you to vote against the $33 billion supplementary spending bill to pay for the escalation of troops in Afghanistan and the continuation of this war and occupation! I also want to let you know about the Afghanistan Timeline for Withdrawal Bill, Senate: S. 3197 and House: H.R. 5015 and ask you to do everything you can to insist that President Obama develop a rapid, real and complete plan to bring our troops home now."

Important New Anti-War Legislation

Call today!


Dear Friends,

In a time when there is such urgent need here in the U.S. we need to continue to pressure our elected officials to reduce the outrageous military budget. Please call your Representatives and Senators and urge them to vote NO on the upcoming supplemental that will provide an additional $33 billion for war and occupation in Afghanistan.

In addition to asking them to vote against this funding and instead support the swift and safe removal of all of our troops from Iraq and Afghanistan, we now have new legislation to let them know about. Last week, U.S. Senator Russ Feingold (D-WI) and U.S. Representatives Jim McGovern (D-MA) and Walter Jones (R-NC) announced they are introducing legislation requiring President Obama to develop a timetable to draw down U.S. troops from Afghanistan.

Senate bill: S. 3197
House bill: H.R. 5015

There are over 20 national organizations mobilizing for a call-in week. Please help make it a success!

1. Call the Congressional switchboard at[masked]-3121. If you want to call your Representative or Senator directly you can easily find them here.

2. Forward this message to your friends and family, and ask them to make a call as well.


What you can say to your representatives:

"I urge you to vote against the $33 billion supplementary spending bill to pay for the escalation of troops in Afghanistan and the continuation of this war and occupation! I also want to let you know about the Afghanistan Timeline for Withdrawal Bill, Senate: S. 3197 and House: H.R. 5015 and ask you to do everything you can to insist that President Obama develop a rapid, real and complete plan to bring our troops home now."

PLEASE CALL TODAY:[masked]


Thank you for your work for peace!
