MARCH ON DC 1/27
FROM CENTER FOR AMERICAN PROGRESS
We've identified 312 members of Congress who oppose President Bush's disastrous plan to escalate the war in Iraq. Fewer than half that number, only 145, have offered their support. Likewise, according to a recent Gallup poll, 61% of Americans oppose escalation and only 36% support it.
Escalation will hurt, not enhance, our national security. An overwhelming majority of the American public and their representatives in Congress have made their oppostion clear. Unfortunately, President Bush has stubbornly refused to listen.
It's time to step up the pressure, take to the streets, and demonstrate to President Bush that America stands against escalating this disastrous war. This Saturday, January 27, come to Washington, DC and join United for Peace and Justice and hundreds of other organizations as we March to Stop the Escalation! The Center for American Progress Action Fund (CAPAF) and Campus Progress will provide signs, stickers, and other materials to help make the march a success.
What: March on Washington to Stop Escalation
Where: National Mall between 3rd & 7th Streets
When: Saturday, Jan. 27, 11 am - 1 pm
