War making and war funding are out of control.
It's time for a new initiative to reverse the madness.
Please click here to join with RootsAction.org, World Beyond War, United for Peace and Justice, September 11th Families for Peaceful Tomorrows, Watchdog.net, and Progressive Democrats of America in telling Congress the following:
We call on you to help our country turn away from what Martin Luther King Jr. called “the madness of militarism.” As a vital step, we urge you to enact legislation to block the use of any U.S. taxpayer funds for continuing warfare, directly or by proxy, in Syria. We further implore you to strive for better relations with Russia instead of fueling the current conflicts that could lead to nuclear annihilation of us all. While defunding endless and disastrous wars as well as cutting wasteful military expenditures, you can provide funds for urgent human and environmental needs.
After signing the petition, please use the tools on the next webpage to share it with your friends.
This work is only possible with your financial support. Please chip in $3 now.
