    HEED THE CALL FROM CINDY SHEEHAN, MEDEA BENJAMIN, TOM HAYDEN

    Join the national *Call-In for Peace*.

    PDA and its allies are coordinating a unified phone campaign to get Congress to reject additional Iraq war funding – the Bush supplemental appropriations request for $93billion more.

    With the Democratic leadership signaling weakness and half-hearted amendments aimed at undermining the surge but not the war, our coalition is /phoning/ in a loud and clear message:

    NO MORE FUNDING FOR WAR. VOTE NO ON THE SUPPLEMENTAL. BRING OUR TROOPS HOME.. .AND OUT OF IRAQ’S CIVIL WAR.

    *PDA’s big day is Tuesday, March 6.

    Mobilize all PDA members and supporters to phone Congress on Tuesday.
    Our special number into Congress is 1-888-851-1879.

    * When you call your Senate and Congressional offices, /politely/ tell them one or two of the following points:

    Most Iraqis – both Sunni /and/ Shia –want US troops out of their country and most believe attacks on our troops are justified.

    US military force is no solution in Iraq –especially given the tainted rationales for invading Iraq, cultural gaps, Abu Ghraib, etc.

    Diplomacy, not war, is the solution.

    The American people at the polls in November and in opinion polls have expressed their view that the US needs to get out.

    Four years is enough! With its Constitutionally-granted “power of the purse,” Congress has the duty to end the war by cutting off war funding, except what’s needed for the prompt, safe, orderly withdrawal of all our troops.

    Each day from March 5 through March 13, different national groups in our alliance will spark phone calls to Congress. Instead of just one day of calls, we’ll keep pressure on Congress for over a week leading up to the Iraq Supplemental vote.

    Thanks to our toll-free number (connected directly to the Capitol Hill switchboard), we’ll track how many calls we can generate when we all work together.
