Hearing and Rally on Ending the War: September 15 in DC

On Thursday, September 15, in Washington, D.C., Congresswoman Lynn Woolsey will hold a hearing on exit strategies for Iraq.


A coalition of organizations demanding an end to the war will hold a rally at 5 p.m. that evening in front of the White House.

Please ask your Congress Member and Senators to take part in both events.

Email them here: http://tinyurl.com/7vjej

Or call the switchboard toll free: (888) 818-6641.

And please come to these events yourself if you can (but remember that we are building toward a mass mobilization on September 24; if you can only come to DC once, come then).

Rally updates and flyers.
