[haw-info] Call Senators Today: Advance Diplomacy / Avoid War with Iran

The following message is from Carolyn "Rusti" Eisenberg and Margaret Power for the HAW Steering Committee. Correspondence about it should be sent to Carolyn.Eisenberg@hofstra.edu.

Your Voice Is Urgently Needed! To Advance Diplomacy and Block Dangerous Iran Bill
The Senate is back in session and will soon be considering the Nuclear Weapons Free Iran Act (S 1881) introduced by Senators Kirk, Menendez and Schumer. The clear purpose of this bill is to undermine the promising diplomatic opening to Iran, undertaken by the Obama Administration.The vast majority of Americans are tired of war and prefer peaceful solutions to problems. But the American Israel Public Affairs Committee (AIPAC) and Israel's hard-line Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu are lobbying furiously to prevent these negotiations from succeeding. This joint effort has already produced 47 co--sponsors in the US Senate.
For list of co-sponsors:
 For text of S 1881
All of these Senators need to hear from you, along with your colleagues, friends and relatives. The last thing most of their constituents want is another war in the Middle East.
Call the Capitol toll-free at 855-68-NO-WAR (855-686-6927)
Be sure to speak to both your Senators.
If they are co-sponsors of this destructive legislation, let them know you want them to withdraw their name.
If they are not co-sponsors, let them know you expect a NO vote!
Please forward widely. And let us know of any interesting results.
Carolyn Rusti Eisenberg and Margaret Power for the HAW-SC
