THIS IS ACTUALLY FOR EVERYONE EVERYWHERE - TOTALLY INTERNATIONAL





January 8, 2006

Dear Jessie ,

Thank you for being our first blossoms! In less than a week since we launched the Women Say No to War campaign, 10,000 of you signed on! And every day we get exciting messages from people around the world saying how thrilled they are to see women coming together to resist the war in Iraq.

In our bouquet, each flower represents 1,000 names. Ten flowers are now blooming. Won't you help us complete the field of dreams?

Here's how:

  • If each of you gets just 10 friends to sign on, that will put us over our goal of 100,000 signatures by March 8. Click here to send a message to your 10 friends by using your personal email address book. Or you can cut and paste the Call from the website into an email. The Call is now available in Arabic, French, Italian, Spanish, German, and Russian.
  • Once 100,000 people have signed, we should make sure there are anti-war actions all over the world on March 8, International Women's Day. Reach out to a woman's group or a peace group in your community to organize an action.
  • Then we will focus on bringing Iraqi women to Washington DC to join US military moms as they pressure Bush and Congress to withdraw the US military from Iraq.
  • So let's make 100 flowers bloom. Let's unleash the power of women across generations, races, religions and borders to say no to war. With compassion, determination and love, we can work together to build a powerful, women-led movement capable of stopping this war-and future wars!

    In peace,
    Medea Benjamin, Jodie Evans and Gael Murphy
    CODEPINK: Women for Peace

    P.S. To make this a truly global call, please reach out to your international contacts. If you have access to a website, here are banners that you can put up.

I feel Care2 members should KNOW about the \\\"work from home\\\" ads, RECRUITING \\\"MULES\\\" TO CARRY OUT ILLEGAL ACTIVITIES. Just like the Drug Cartels do... A person who was recruited unwittingly by one of these ads, was given in a seattleweekly.com arti...
