Tell President Obama "No more Wars"
Join us at the Rally in DC on Dec. 12
Hello Friends and Supporters,
President Obama has just announced he will be sending another 30,000 troops to Afghanistan. That's 30,000 more American men and women ripped from their communities and families, and placed in harm's way, to fight a war that history proves cannot be won.
We cannot sit back and allow this escalation to occur.
Next week, I will travel with other Mainers to Washington DC where I will stand with 2008 Green Party Presidential candidate Cynthia McKinney, activist blogger and author David Swanson, and many others in a Stop the Escalation Rally in Lafayette Park. This rally, organized by End US Wars, will take place from 11 am to 4 pm. on Saturday, Dec. 12, 2009. For more information go to http://www.enduswars.org or contact organizer Laurie Dobson, 207-604-8988, firstname.lastname@example.org
Many of us will be traveling to DC by bus, leaving from Portland at 8:30 p.m. Friday night, Dec. 11. I urge you to join us.
As I said yesterday in a statement issued by the Green Party of the U.S.:
This escalation is what Obama's fabled bi-partisanship gets us -- more of the same.
What we need is partisanship, with a strong Green Party presence in this country, since we are the only party that was against the wars on Iraq and Afghanistan from day one.
Please consider joining us on this bus trip and attending the rally. We need to get as many Mainers as possible to attend. It is so important that we show this administration that we are not going be be any easier on it than we were on the Bush administration, because the fact of the matter is that they are acting no differently.
Following is the information about the bus that will be leaving from Portland on Friday night, December 11. Please join me and others who are working to stop this escalation.
