Iraq Moratorium

The slow motion train wreck that is the occupation of Iraq grows more nightmarish by the day. In 2006 the American people voted to bring it to an end. But the political process is moving glacially at best. We must force the media and the politicians to recognize just how angry and how massive anti-war sentiment in this country has grown. It's time for the Iraq Moratorium. The Iraq Moratorium will be an escalating, monthly expression of determination to end the war. Commencing Friday, September 21st and continuing the Third Friday of every month thereafter, we will encourage people to make a break with business as usual. Join with millions to: * Wear and distribute black ribbons and armbands * Refrain from buying gas * Pressure politicians and the media * Hold vigils, pickets, rallies, and teach-ins * Hold special religious services * Coordinate events in music, art, and culture * Host film showings, talks, and educational events * Organize student actions: Teach-ins, school closings, etc.
