The fasters are demanding that we bring our troops home from Iraq. They want the White House and Congress to call for:
- The withdrawal of all U.S. from Iraq;
- No permanent bases in Iraq;
- A commitment to fund a massive reconstruction effort but with funds going to Iraqi, not U.S., contractors.
How you can help:
To help in this effort, we ask you to pressure your Congressperson and Senator to support bills that move us in this direction. During the course of the fast, we will ask you to prioritize certain bills.
We also ask you to sign the Voters Pledge that says you will only vote for candidates who call for a speedy withdrawal from Iraq, and to sign the Declaration of Peace.
