      Hi Nick,
      Could you post something on the Consumers for Peace website to help us promote the event and to verify that your organization is giving approval for endorsement?

  7. Sally Weiss says:

    PDA wants to be an endorser of your fine event. We have members who will stand with you that day — and undergo whatever being there may mean, including jail time.
    I have the authority from Tim Carpenter, Exec. Dir. of PDA and from the membership of my Issue Organizing Team to make this move. We are very glad you are planning this action. You veterans have the standing to call this nation out on war.
    — Sally Weiss, co-chair, End the War and Occupation IOT of PDA

    • Leah Bolger says:

      Thanks, Sally–I saw Tim’s name on David Swanson’s post today. Thanks for the support. Could PDA send out an action alert and/or post something on your website?

  8. Gar Smith says:

    Please add Environmentalists Against War to your list of endorsers.
    This is a clarion call and we are happy to trumpet the cause.
    As a veteran of the Free Speech Movement I was pleased that you cited Mario Savio’s still-galvanizing grassroots challenge to power. I served nearly a month in jail for the FSM sit-in (and wound up hoeing sugar beets with a “chain gang” of fellow prisoners working under a blistering sun with shotgun-toting deputies watching over us). I went on to stand on the tracks to protest troop trains as part of the Vietnam Day Committee and again put my body on the line by blocking a napalm truck to kick off the Port Chicago Vigil.
    We need this kind of direct action now. Thank you for clearly spelling out the need and providing the time and place. We will be posting this alert and invitation on tomorrow’s edition of EAW news.

  13. We join in opposing U.S. foreign intervention and wars. A nation must have the same values as each of its individuals. Aggressive violence is not only wrong, it produces painful blowback which poisons our nation and those who participate in war for decades to come. In a time of great need especially, this sin is compounded.

  14. Tom Siracuse says:

We believe that now more then ever it is important for peace-loving people from all over the world, across all borders, to join together on the streets in opposing imperialist war and occupation from Iraq and Afghanistan to Africa and Latin America.

    We will report on this important action to our organizers, friends and supporters.

    In Solidarity
