What Can I Do To Stop The War?

Many of our local anti-war activists have held rallies, candle-light vigils, written Congress and the White House, stood with Cindy and more and yet the war in Iraq wages on despite calls for withdrawal from many quarters.

Local Democrats have asked with not a little frustration, is there something else we should be doing. Those of you who have read or seen variations of the Greek play 'Lysistrata," know the concept of women working together to end war is a notion that didn't start yesterday.

Now a national movement called Code Pink is working in that old tradition by getting both prominent and ordinary women to step forward and sign on in solidarity against the war in Iraq. Distinguished women from Nobel Prize winners and nominees to prominent entertainers have all added their names to the growing movement that is gearing up for large scale demonstrations all over the globe on March 8.

Code Pink is seeking to get 100,000 signatures by March 8 to present to Congress and the White House. This time men are asked to join the movement too. March 8 is also International Women's Day.
