Stop the bombing in Syria and Iraq!| November 12, 2014
Stop the bombing in Syria and Iraq!

After the mid-term elections as the saying goes, “the struggle continues.” Just a few days ago President Obama announced a doubling of the number of troops in Iraq. This week Peace Action and over 20 peace organizations are promoting a week of activities entitled  “National Days of Action on war in Syria and Iraq.”

Tomorrow, Thursday, November 13th is a national call-in day to call Congress.  Tomorrow was chosen because Secretary Hagel is testifying  before Congress. Please call your representatives in the U.S. House and Senate and say no to increased U.S. troops and bombing.  Click here for a hand out on peaceful alternatives provided by peace organizations  that can be used when talking to Congressional staff. The phone number for the U.S. House of Represenatives is: (202) 224-3121.

Additionally groups are prioritizing the struggle to confirm President Obama’s judicial nominees. If they are not confirmed by January 1, the nominations expire. A petition demanding action be taken on the nominees can be found here.

This includes Loretta Lynch, who the president has chosen to replace Eric Holder as Attorney General. Not surprisingly the tea party is opposing her nomination, despite two past confirmations by the Senate.

The time to act is now!
