[haw-info] HAW Notes 11/7/14: opposing US bombing campaign; links to recent articles of interest
Note: This message was to be sent last Friday, Nov. 7 but did not go out due to problems with the email server.
The HAW Steering Committee has signed-on to a campaign by more than twenty national peace and justice groups to oppose the current US bombing campaign in Iraq and Syria. The joint statement (at http://winwithoutwar.org/alternatives-to-war) poses a range of nonmilitary options for countering the growth of ISIS. It urges people to contact members of Congress, preferably during the period November 11-16 after a lame-duck session of Congress convenes.
