Encampment to Stop the War
Encampment to Stop the War
March 12-19+

Let us know if you are coming to the Encampment: http://troopsoutnow.org/march12volunteer.shtml

Dear Friend:

Over the past few days, response to the call for an Encampment to Stop the War has been overwhelming. Students, antiwar activists, veterans, military families, community organizers, and trade unionists are coming from all over the U.S. to join the Encampment.

Soon, Congress will be asked to vote on President Bush' request for another $245 billion for the war in Iraq. This will be, in effect, a vote to continue the war. The current Congress was elected with a mandate to stop the war, and the antiwar movement must be in DC to hold them accountable for their actions.

The Encampment to Stop the War will start in one week - March 12 - and there is an enormous amount of work to be done in a short period of time. We have an opportunity in the next few days to have a major impact, if we work together--here's how you can help:

  • Volunteer at the Encampment - we will need hundreds of volunteers during the week of the Encampment let us know how you can help (logistics, security, medical, greeter, etc) - http://troopsoutnow.org/donate.shtml
  • Donate to to help with the enormous costs of the Encampment - http://troopsoutnow.org/donate.shtml. If you are not able to come to the encampment, help send a youth activist to the Encampment to the week- donate for transportation and housing costs here.
  • Get the word out -- forward messages to your email lists, list serves, etc. Download leaflets from http://www.troopsoutnow.org and take them to your school, workplace, union hall, community center, or your church, mosque, or other place or worship.
  • Please join us Wednesday, Thursday, and Friday from 1pm to 6 pm for work sessions at 55 W. 17th St., 5th Floor (in Manhattan, between 5th & 6th Aves.) to prepare materials for the encampment.

Please check the
blog for daily updates on logistics, program, actions, and other Encampment updates.
