Victory! Senate passes Merkley Afghanistan amendment

Posted by Peace Action West on December 1st, 2011

From our partners at Peace Action West

Earlier today, the US Senate passed Sen. Jeff Merkley’s amendment requiring a plan for an accelerated withdrawal from Afghanistan by a voice vote. No matter how loudly Sen. John McCain shouted “NO!” on the Senate floor, he couldn’t out-yell the growing opposition to the costly and unnecessary war in Afghanistan.

Thank you to all of you who called and emailed your senators urging them to support the amendment. Our power is growing, and we will continue to build on this opportunity to keep pushing to bring our troops and tax dollars home.

Update: Read Sen. Merkley’s press release here.
