are news reports that on Decembers 1st, Obama will be at West Point
to announce that he is sending tens of thousands more troops to
Afghanistan, this despite our rallies, vigils, petitions, phone
calls and e-mails saying NO to MORE WAR.
We can't let generals and war profiteers be the only ones who have
the President’s ear.
Obama needs to hear our voices loud and
clear. Now is the time to take to the streets, the airwaves,
and the opinion pages to say NO to escalation, NO to massive
corruption and war profiteering, NO to bombs dropped on Afghan
wedding parties, and no to money squandered on war and occupation
while the needs of people in this country go unmet.
We have made a powerful “Hopeless Escalation” visual
that you can use to create a sign for your office, your window,
or your car.

You can send “Hopeless Escalation” as an e-card to your friends and family. Or try making a banner to hang from
a freeway overpass!
