Anti-war groups want citizens to call their Representatives for a debate on Iraq in Congress by Mitch E. Perry06/05/06
The anti-war group United for Peace and Justice has organized a coalition of organizations, all of which are asking their members to phone their members of Congress this Wednesday, to urge them to sign a Discharge Petition that would force, for the first time, a full and open debate on Iraq on the floor of the House of Representatives.
Among the groups participating include the American Friends Service Committee, Code Pink, Democracy Rising and the Unitarian Universalist Association of Congregations. David Swanson is with the group AfterDowningStreet.org, He spoke to WMNF about the desire to get a full borne discussion about Iraq onto the House Floor (roll tape#1 o.q.Ã¢â‚¬?open discussion on the matterÃ¢â‚¬?)
ThatÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s David Swanson, with the group,AfterDowningStreet.Org. That organization is just of many working as a coalition on getting citizens to call their Members of the House of Representatives, simply to engage in a debate about the current situation of U.S. troops in Iraq.
