Jan 27 Protest in D.C. (or from home)

Posted by Sue on Jan 25, 2007  

Hello ~ I haven’t written here in a while. Part of me has been focussed more on war and peace than on STUFF.

I won’t go so far as to send this as an email to the folks who have signed up for Breathing Space Tips. I have only sent it to friends and family members who I KNOW are concerned about our actions in Iraq.

But since this blog is paid for by me – and my company is only me, I am going to post here the notice that I received about the “virtual” peace march which is taking place alongside the live one in DC this Saturday.

There are two actions you can take that I want to tell you about:

ONE: Join Saturday’s Global Peace March From Your Home

This Saturday, hundreds of thousands of Americans will march on Washington DC to demand peace and justice in Iraq and the Middle East. We can be there too, raising a global voice of solidarity — through our own worldwide virtual march. Time is short, so add your voice and join the march today!

Avaaz supporters in Washington have offered to carry real banners and placards at the US demonstration – showing how many internet marchers from all round the world are joining in. We will carry the flag of each country that generates more than 500 internet marchers, so tell your friends!

With American opposition to this war mounting, 45,000 of us from over 100 countries have already joined the call to oppose Bush’s military escalation and demand a real plan to end this war.

Can we get 75,000 – even 100,000 people from round the world to join the march before Saturday? Click here to join the march:

Join the global peace march and tell your friends today!
With hope,
Ricken, Paul, Tom, Rachel, Galit, Lee-Sean and the rest of the Ceasefire Campaign (now Avaaz.org! ) Team

PS – In an online poll last year, nearly a thousand of you helped choose a compelling new name for our global campaigning effort – www.Avaaz.org. Avaaz means “voice” or “song” in many Asian languages. The new site is up, so check it out!

TWO: Read the article linked below by George McGovern which gives a carefully thought out plan for leaving Iraq and then talk to others about it! It takes a bit of effort to read it but it’s worth it!

Wishing you more peace — in your space and in our world. Aren’t they in reality connected – no matter what???  Joanna
