Thanks to Roots Action for providing these resources. We must continue to protest against U.S. warmaking in SYRIA, Iraq, Yemen, Libya and Afghanistan. And threats of war against North Korea and Iran.
It’s urgent that your senators and representative in Congress hear directly from you about the U.S. missile attack on Syria. As a constituent,you can quickly send a message to all three of them by clicking here.
The missile attack puts the United States and Russia — the world’s two nuclear superpowers — on a collision course while threatening to make the Syrian conflict even more deadly. Yet many members of Congress have been praising the attack.
In a democracy, when the people lead, the leaders can be compelled to follow. But that can only happen if we assert ourselves.
Fifty years ago, Martin Luther King Jr. denounced what he called “the madness of militarism.” Today, that madness is all too prevalent. Pleaseclick here to tell your senators and representative that you favor a complete cutoff of funding for U.S. military actions in Syria.
The elected officials who are supposed to represent you in Congress must hear from you.
Links below go to key information and astute analysis in the aftermath of the missile attack on Syria.
After emailing Congress, please use the tools on the next webpage to share this urgent action with your friends.
This work is only possible with your financial support. Please chip in $3 now.
