Dear friends,

I just took an action on the internet calling for a stop to the war
in Iraq, and I thought you might be interested…

From the Ceasefire Campaign:

Dear friends,

This week the American people voted overwhelmingly to reject
President Bush’s war in Iraq, and yesterday the key architect of the
war, US military chief Donald Rumsfeld, announced his resignation.
The winds of political change are sweeping the US, and the US-led
Coalition in Iraq may -- finally -- be realising that they cannot win
the war, and that they lack the legitimacy to bring stability and
peace to the country without more help from the international community.

With a newly elected US Congress and a President who is finally in
a listening mood, we now have a unique opportunity for a global
public outcry to change the course of this disastrous war. It’s the
perfect time to act.

To seize this opportunity, we want to place ads in US and UK papers
with a new global petition calling upon the Coalition to accept a
larger role for the international community and a phased withdrawal
of all its troops from Iraq. We’ll publish the number of signatures
we get in the ads, so we need AS MANY PEOPLE AS POSSIBLE to sign the
petition in the next 48 hours. Please tell all your friends and
family, and sign below:

www.CeasefireCampaign.org

This is our chance to make sure the pressure of global public
opinion is being felt by Coalition governments as they rethink their
war in Iraq, pressing them to accept a larger role for the
international community and to withdraw their troops.

We know why it’s so important to act. A shocking study released by
Johns Hopkins University last month suggested that hundreds of
thousands of innocent civilians have been killed in Iraq -- more than
anyone thought -- and experts warn that the civil war is about to
pass a point of no return. October was the worst month yet for
civilian casualties, with death squads moving house to house. The
killing could place Iraq alongside Darfur as one of the greatest
human catastrophes of our new century.

We must not let that happen. And if we each act quickly this week,
we can each play a role in stopping it.

We can reach our goal for this campaign by spreading the word.
Please forward this email to as many of your friends and family as
you can, and act now to add your voice to this urgent call for action:

www.CeasefireCampaign.org

This may be our best chance for peace yet. Let’s take it.
