**A special message from United for Peace and Justice**
The occupation of Iraq is sliding into war crimes and deepening violence against civilians. We need to reach both John Kerry and George W. Bush with a simple message: bring our troops home, now.
Do you agree? Join our Unsilent Majority and send a letter to each of the major presidential candidates. To sign the “Two Letters from the Unsilent Majority,” go to http://www.unitedforpeace.org/UnsilentMajority
For too long, pro-war voices have dominated the debate over the occupation of Iraq. Now it’s our turn. United for Peace and Justice, the nation’s largest antiwar coalition, is mobilizing 100,000 people between today and June 25 to tell John Kerry: Speak out! We remember your leadership against the war in Vietnam, and we demand the same courage today. June 26 is the first day of a weekend of protests organized jointly with Win Without War.
We have to remind John Kerry of his famous plea from 1971, “How do you ask a man to be the last man to die for a mistake?” We cannot afford a presidential campaign where there is no debate on the occupation, while a majority of voters support ending it as soon as possible. He must take a stand. Write Senator Kerry at http://www.unitedforpeace.org/UnsilentMajority , and please pass this letter on to everyone you know who wants a real choice in 2004.
To President Bush, our message is simpler: Repent, admit your imperial folly, and end the occupation.
As evidence mounts of systematic war crimes in Iraq, we have a unique opportunity to indict the Bush/Cheney administration for its arrogance and corruption. If you want to speak truth to power, here is a special opportunity to speak directly to the President. Write George W. Bush at http://www.unitedforpeace.org/UnsilentMajority .
We cannot reach 100,000 people by June 25 without your help. We need everyone who receives this appeal to send it on to their friends, family and co-workers. Together, we can tell both of these political leaders that we are not–and will never be–silent.
Are you part of the Unsilent Majority? Then join us.
