Action Alert! Protest Bush's Plan to Increase Troops in Iraq

We are organizing nationwide events to protest Bush's plan for more
troops in Iraq, but it'll only happen if hardcore TrueMajority members pitch
in. The mail below has details; we will be sending it out to everyone in a
few days, but since I know you requested opportunites like this I'm hoping
you will help get the ball rolling TODAY. This is one of the most ambitious
things we have ever done -- lots of people will be willing to join in if a
few courageous souls step forward first.

How 'bout it?

Ben Hudson

President Bush is expected to give his "new direction in Iraq"
speech around Wednesday, January 10th -- and you won't like what he's
planning to say. He wants to increase the number of men and women sent to
Iraq, even though we just elected a new Congress to help get us out of
there. We have to make it clear that Americans do NOT want more troops in
Iraq and we have to act fast! Which is why I'm writing to you on a Saturday.

You've proven yourself to be one of our best activists and volunteers. Can
you host an event in your community to oppose the President's troop

This is just the beginning. On January 27th, we'll be delivering a petition
signed by tens of thousands of Americans at the huge March on Washington in
D.C. We know not everyone can board a bus to Washington to speak out, so
these local events are a great way to get everyone in your community signed

Here's how it works:

The Americans Say No events will be simple, and easy to host.
We'll all converge on the evening after the President's speech with some
ready-made signs and petitions carrying our message.
You can read out the names of the servicemembers from your state who have
already died in Iraq, or simply hold a silent vigil.
Then, pass the petition around and be sure to take a digital photo of your
event to add to an online collection.

Volunteer to lead an event by visiting . We've got lots of information to get you
started, and more is on the way. Hosting these events is almost as simple as
1, 2, 3:

1) Pick a time and location for the event.

2) Download a host kit full of tools and ideas to make your event easy and

3) Let your friends and neighbors know about the event. Point them to the
website so they can RSVP.

And be sure to contact with any
questions or ideas about the event. It's folks like you that have lead the
movement to end the war in Iraq, and together we're going to make it happen.
