Thanks to those signers listed below we now are prepared to purchase full-page signature ads in three popular Maine weekly papers.  Besides The Forecaster (four editions) and the Capital Weekly we’ve now, in consultation with the Peace & Justice Center of Eastern Maine, decided to buy an ad in The Maine Edge which runs in the Bangor area.  So all together this gives us a combined circulation of 95,500 copies throughout the state.  Add in our WBACH radio spots on their three stations and we will be reaching many Mainers with this message.  (All of this will run the week of March 21-26.)


We will still take names until noon on March 10.


Your next job will be to help us get folks to the state capital on April 4 at 11:00 am for our rally.


Having sat for more than five hours in the Appropriations Committee hearings yesterday in Augusta I can assure you that no one else is making this important demand to Bring Our War $$ Home.  If we don’t do it the people of Maine won’t hear about it.  But we are doing it and we ‘ain’t gonna stop’!


Thanks again to all of you.

Bring Our War $$ Home



We the undersigned are outraged that our nation remains at war after 10 long years of fruitless killing in Iraq-Afghanistan-Pakistan. Maine’s share of war spending since 2001 has been $3.4 billion (  Those dollars could have been used to fund education, health care, and other human needs in our state. Many more of our tax dollars will be wasted as long as these wars continue. We call upon all of Maine’s local, state, and federal elected officials to speak out and tell President Obama and Congress to Bring Our War $$ Home now. We must all begin to make the connections between endless war spending and our economic crisis here at home.
Join us on Monday, April 4 at 11:00 am in the Hall of Flags in Augusta for a rally to Bring Our War $$ Home.
