For three days, people from every corner of the country will be flooding the White House with calls. We oppose sending more troops to Afghanistan; we want the troops that are there now to be brought home! If you cannot get through on Monday, call on Tuesday or Wednesday.
Monday. Nov. 23 through Wednesday, Nov. 25 -- 9:00 a.m. - 5:00 p.m. Eastern Time
(November 23, 2009) — For three days, people from every corner of the country will be flooding the White House with calls. We oppose sending more troops to Afghanistan; we want the troops that are there now to be brought home! If you cannot get through on Monday, call on Tuesday or Wednesday.
Most importantly, make your call and make your voice heard!
While some news reports suggest President Obama is likely to send additional troops, there is still time for the American people to influence this decision! The President must know that there is NOT support for continuing this war that is costing billions of dollars, thousands of lives and increased hardship both in Afghanistan and here at home. The first step is to not send more troops. The next step must be the withdrawal of the troops currently there.
Voters for Peace has joined with other national organizations including AFSC, Code Pink, Peace Action, UFPJ and others to issue this call for a massive nationwide effort to flood the White House with phone calls from Monday through Wednesday this week. It is critical for President Obama to hear from people who oppose the war. So, call today!
This is a decision making moment so we need to have as much of an impact as possible. Call now.
Call the White House - 202-456-1111 - and tell President Obama to say no to escalation in Afghanistan, end the war and bring the troops home. The U.S. military is bringing chaos, not stability to Afghanistan.
The U.S. economy cannot afford the cost of $1 million to keep one solider in Afghanistan for one year. The U.S. would be better off removing troops and providing assistance to rebuild the country. In short, remove the troops now, don't add to the quagmire.
Thank you for taking action.,
