[haw-info] Call Congress Today! 100 Groups Support "No War Funding" Letter

The House of Representatives is about to pass a $648.7 billion Defense Appropriations bill, perhaps as soon as this evening. Yesterday over 100 national and grassroots groups signed a "No War Funding" letter to the Congressional Progressive Caucus. Historians Against War was pleased to endorse this effort. Support for the letter reflects grass-roots outrage over the willingness of Congress to keep paying for the military, while slashing vitally important domestic programs.
 
 
Now is the time to call all members of Congress. Voting on the 2012 Defense Appropriations bill could come as early as this evening. This bill provides $648.7 for the military, including $118 billion for the Afghanistan and Iraq wars.
 
Capitol Switchboard: 202-225-3121
 
Tell your Representative to oppose further war funding for Afghanistan and to vote against the entire 2012 Defense Appropriations bill.  Message is simple: we must not continue wasting lives and money. The United States  cannot afford another $648.7 billion for the military. Its time to bring our war dollars home!
 
Please forward this message widely.!!!
 
Carolyn Eisenberg on behalf of the Historians Against War Steering Committee.
