Join the Swarm on Washington to Tell Congress:
“No business as usual until the war is ended”
May 14 to July 31
The only thing that will end the war is constant, organized and focused pressure from Americans who oppose the war.
The last few months have shown that we can move Congress toward the view that the war must end. When the Democrats came to power they said “we will not use the power of the purse to end the war.” Now, they have moved from that position to passing a bill that opposes Bush enough for him to veto it.
More work is needed Congress needs to constantly stiffen its spine to respond to those who want to continue the war. Too many in Congress still refuse to vote to end the war. But, as the 2008 election approaches the power of the anti-war voter becomes greater, especially if it is organized and focused.
