RECLAIM THE CAPITOL- STOP THE WAR NOW! Unless We Act Immediately, Thousands Will Die in a Senseless War on Iraq.
Nonviolent Direct Action Campaign at the Nations’ Capitol
March 17th, 2003
WAR IS NOT INEVITABLE! We Must Stop It Now. We call upon the American people to take nonviolent direct action to stop this war! Congress has the constitutional power to stop this war and has been silent.
WE DEMAND THAT CONGRESS REPRESENT the Will of the People, REPEAL Bush’s war authorization and RE-ALLOCATE our money to schools, jobs, health care and other human needs.
While war is imminent we cannot rest, March 17 will begin a WEEK OF NONVIOLENT DIRECT ACTION. From March 17-24 we will take action in the halls and offices of Congress in DC and across this nation -- filling the jails until they answer the people's call for peace and justice!
Together, we have the power to stop this war and change history!
This campaign is being called by United for Peace and Justice and is getting leading support from the National Youth and Student Peace Campaign, the Iraq Pledge of Resistance and the National Peace Lobby.
Kick-off, Monday, March 17th – Help Reclaim Democracy!
If Congress won't represent us, we will represent ourselves! More information to come on this action. Please check back.
