Block escalation in Iraq!
Petition: President Bush’s plan to escalate the war in Iraq is opposed by the Iraqi people, the international community, the Iraq Study Group, and the vast majority of Americans. We urge the new US Congress to block the military escalation in Iraq and demand a diplomatic solution and a real plan to end the Iraq war.
The disaster in Iraq endangers us all– now George Bush is asking the US Congress for funds to ESCALATE his war. This week Congress will sit in judgment: it’s the first concrete chance for a change of course. They can demand a real plan to end this conflict. Now it's time to march our petition right into Congress. We need as many citizens around the world as possible to sign the petition before we deliver it to the Capitol this week - add your voice today! On Saturday 27 January the US peace movement found new passion with a big march on their capital of Washington DC. We added our voices by holding a virtual Global Peace March of almost 90,000 people through the web. Over 100 volunteers carried banners and flags from dozens of countries at the DC march to represent friends around the globe who came out in solidarity. Avaaz.org is where it's all coming together – one place where people can join forces across borders to demand progress on peace, poverty, global warming, human rights, and other burning problems.
