I've been asked to forward this, and instruct readers to do likewise:
I have been on the national board of Voters for Peace since its inception and believe strongly in the Pledge for Peace. I have not voted for a pro-war candidate since.
Unfortunately, many people are still mired in fear-based voting. Elected in 2008, our new president has continued and expanded the path of war begun by Bush and Cheney. He is also increasing military and nuclear budgets as he escalates our troop and contractor commitments in the Middle East.
Peace of the Action is a new peace group that I am putting together with the help and encouragement of Voters for Peace. Our first large event will be Camp OUT NOW, an antiwar camp that we will be setting up on the lawn of the Washington Monument in Washington, D.C., on March 13th. We are focusing our attention on the wars in which our nation is incredibly mired and will be doing civil resistance on a daily basis until our demands are met. This is a sustained action.
I am writing to invite you to come for all or part of Camp OUT NOW. Please visit our website so you can get more information or donate to this very worthy cause.
In love, peace, and solidarity!
National Director of Peace of the Action
