Congress recently passed a bill setting a deadline to end the war in Iraq. But President Bush is going to veto -- ignoring the will of the American people who want this war to end.

So, tomorrow, May 2 at 5:00 PM join with members from TrueMajority, Working Assets, MoveOn, United for Peace and Justice, CODEPINK, Veterans for Peace and Vietnam Veterans Against the War and more in a nationwide Emergency Veto Rally. Together, we'll stand up to the President's veto and tell Congress to do the same by keeping the withdrawal date in any future Iraq spending bills.

Meet us in front of the old Capital Building tomorrow at 5PM. Help us let Congress know we will not be silenced. Sign up at the link below...

Canada Lets Iraqi Doctor Speak

Canada offers forum for lecturer barred from U.S.
JONATHAN WOODWARD
VANCOUVER A highly regarded Iraqi epidemiologist who wants to tell Americans about an alarming rise in cancer levels among Iraqi children will come to Canada instead because he couldn't get a visa to the United States. Unable to travel to the University of Washington, Riyadh Lafta -- best known for a controversial study that estimated Iraq's body count in the U.S.-led war in Iraq at more than half a million -- will arrive at Simon Fraser University in B.C. this month to give a lecture and meet with research associates.

"The University of Washington wanted him, but the U.S. denied his entry," said his colleague at SFU, Tim Takaro...

This is to provide guidance for future displays.

You need a few extra luminaries.

WHY I FIGHT FOR PEACE
by Cloy Richards USMC

Because I can't forget no matter how hard I try.
They told us we were taking out advancing Iraqi
forces, but when we went to check out the bodies
they were nothing but women and children
desperately fleeing their homes because
they wanted to get out of the city
before we attacked in the morning... (more)

Operation Iraq Liberation
by Tom Baxter, April 5, 2003

"...they have sown the wind, and they shall reap the whirlwind."

I opposed the war with Iraq. I still do. I'll continue to be out on the street with my sign, NO BLOOD FOR OIL. When I came back from Vietnam in 1969, I was challenged by peaceniks as to the justice of my county's actions there. I've spent the last 30 years studying our history trying to find out why. I see the same deception and the same bloody quagmire coming in Iraq as we faced in Vietnam, the Philippines and Nicaragua...
