American Friends Service Committee’s 
Not One More Death, Not One More Dollar
2000 Too Many -- $200 Billion Too Much!
Tallahassee joined More than 1500 Other Cities In Pro-Peace Majority Events in responding to the 2000th US Military Death in Iraq. Local members of Gold Star Families for Peace, Code Pink, Tallahassee Network for Peace and Justice, Veterans for Peace, Veterans for Common Sense, and Vietnam Veterans Against the War and friends joined to mourn all the hundreds of thousands that died in BATTLEFIELD IRAQ in the last two years as part of American Friends Service Committee’s “Not One More Death. Not One More Dollar” campaign. AFSC, Code Pink, and MoveOn.org supporters across the nation organized more than 1500 events in 50 states that took place the day following the 2,000th reported U.S. military death in Iraq. Events ranged from candlelight vigils to the ceremonial ringing of the bells in memory of the U.S. service people and more than 100,000 Iraqis who have lost their lives and the 100,000 plus Iraqi children dying of acute malnutrition today.  The events will begin a push to urge Congress to use the power of the purse to end the war, bring the troops home, close U.S. bases in Iraq, and instead fund the human needs laid bare by Hurricane Katrina. Details on all “Not One More Death. Not One More Dollar” events are available of AFSC’s website at http://.afsc.org/2000.
