Rep. Alan Grayson Reads Rethink Afghanistan War Petition on House Floor
Posted by robertgreenwald on December 17th, 2009

On Tuesday morning, your voice was heard in the United States House of Representatives.

Over 100,000 people signed the petition from Brave New Foundation, Credo Mobile and True Majority calling on Congress to vote against any bill to fund troop escalation in Afghanistan. Yesterday, Congressman Alan Grayson read the petition aloud from the House floor, asking his colleagues to vote NO.

Rep. Grayson’s action was a step forward in demonstrating to Congress our opposition to the war. But we’re far from achieving the groundswell we need to bring the war to an end. Let’s keep the momentum going.

The first step to ending the war is explaining to our friends and family why we need to bring the troops home now. We’ve created a new tool to allow you to send a video to your friends that matches to a specific concern about the war. Send a video to five of your friends today.

    All your addresses contain just U.S. zip codes. Canadians/ Nato are in this war and most want it to end. To join here we need a space to put our postal code added plus spaces for other countries. This will raise the numbers. Many Canadians on facebood site.

Peacemakers take action to lead the charge to end the war. Join forces with the over 100,000 people who make a difference.
