On October 6, Let's Make a National Clamor for Peace

On October 7, 2011, the United States will have been at war for ten years.

Let's mark the occasion by making a national clamor for peace so loud that Congress, the President, and big media will have to pay attention.


So let's mark the occasion on Thursday, October 6. Let's have a national, "ecumenical" day of action for peace: to end the wars and cut the military budget.  By "ecumenical," I mean this: everybody will "worship" in their own way.  People who are willing to call Congress, will call Congress. People are willing to go to demonstrations, will go to demonstrations. People who get active online will get active online. But everybody who wants peace will do something for peace on October 6.


*Call Congress*  - - - If you do nothing else for peace on October 6, call at least one of your representatives in Congress -- particularly if they are on the supercommittee -- and tell them to end the wars and cut the military budget. The Congressional switchboard is 202-225-3121.  

On Friday, October 7, don't let big media say that Americans aren't acting to press for peace.
