The New York Times reported yesterday that "global anti-war protests have put the White House on the defensive." Between the strong case for tough inspections and the growing domestic and international opposition to war, the hawks in the Bush Administration are on the run. We need to keep them there.
We've marched in the streets of New York. We've marched in over 600 cities around the world. Now it's time to bring that noise to Washington, where the President and Congress can't escape it. On February 26th, you can join a massive march on Washington without leaving your living room. To learn about all the ways you can march go to:
The Virtual March on Washington is a first-of-its-kind group effort from the Win Without War coalition. Working together, we'll direct a steady stream of phone calls -- about one per minute, all day -- to every Senate office in the country, while at the same time delivering a constant stream of emails and faxes. Think of it like a march -- one by one, we'll be passing through our Senators' offices and the offices of the White House to let them know how we feel about this war.
Like a normal march, the success of this campaign depends on how many people participate. All you need to do is make three phone calls -- it won't take more than 15 minutes of your time. But together with tens of thousands of others, it'll make a huge impression: on February 26th, in every Senate office and in the White House, the phones will be ringing off their hooks. If you can't make calls on the 26th you can still register today to send free faxes. We'll hold them for you until the 26th
You can sign up for your time to call or place a free fax right now at:
Then forward this to everyone you know who might be interested.
Here's what Tom Andrews, a former Member of Congress and the National Director of the Win Without War Coalition has to say about the February 26th Virtual March: "Believe me, political leaders in Washington will get the message when their phones and fax machines light up -- and stay lit up -- from morning until night. They will know that there are a lot of us, that we care deeply about this unnecessary march to war, and that we are organized. Our message will be heard. But, we absolutely need you to make this work."
Last Saturday, millions of us in hundreds of cities around the world voiced our opposition to a war on Iraq. Please help us bring this dissent to Washington on February 26th, by taking part in the Virtual March.
I am writing this email on my own and not on behalf of Ben & Jerry's, which is not associated with the TrueMajority campaign.
Here's a copy of the letter we'll send to your Senators:
I am a constituent of yours and I write today as a participant in Win Without War's Virtual March. I am one of the majority of Americans concerned that President Bush's rush to war is dangerous and unnecessary.
Our nation needs to support tough United Nations inspections. Going to war with Iraq will kill thousands of civilians and soldiers, create an atmosphere that breeds terrorists, and divert money from programs that can really create a safer and more just society.
Please do everything you can to support the inspections process and resist our nation rushing to war.
