The Hawaii State Senate has passed a resolution "CALLING UPON THE GOVERNOR OF HAWAII TO TAKE STEPS TO WITHDRAW THE HAWAII ARMY AND AIR NATIONAL GUARD TROOPS FROM IRAQ." The resolution is a thing of beauty, has been mailed to the Governor and the President, and can be read here.

This resolution, too, seems like a good model for other states. Here's the text.

Citizens of Hawaii who have promoted these steps include Karin Gill and Marsha Joyner of CODE PINK, Ann Wright who retired from the diplomatic service in protest the day the war began, Irradiated Veterans, and Life of the Land.
