– Join the Pledge of Resistance – Sunday March 9th Washington DC – Options in Congress
Emergency Petition to the Security Council The AFSC & MoveOn.com have just launched an emergency petition asking the members of the Security Council to back tough inspections, not war. The list of signers and your comments will be delivered to the 15 member states of the Security Council THURSDAY, March 6.
If hundreds of thousands of us sign, it could be an enormously important and powerful message — people from all over the world joining in a single call for a peaceful solution. But we really need your help, and soon.
In the next week, the U.N. Security Council will likely meet to decide on authorizing a war against Iraq. If the Council votes to accept a second resolution, it’ll be very difficult to avert a war. But if the resolution doesn’t get enough votes, it’ll be a major setback for the Bush Administration’s plans to invade and occupy Iraq.
In the United States and around the world, millions of us oppose a war against Iraq. We believe that tough inspections can disarm Saddam Hussein without the loss of a single life. This week may represent our last chance to win without war.
Please ask your friends, family, colleagues, acquaintances — anyone you know who shares this concern — to sign on today. As the New York Times put it, “there may still be two superpowers on the planet: the United States and world public opinion.” The Bush Administration’s been flexing its muscles. Now let’s flex ours.
Please sign and ask your friends and colleagues to sign TODAY! http://click.topica.com/maaaTHnaaWqb0a4NPN8e/
