Stop the Wars, Shop for Peace!

Good morning, and happy December 11th! Last Friday was Pearl Harbor Day (on which the Los Angeles City Council voted unanimously to support the creation of a Department of Peace), and yesterday was International Human Rights Day. Two days ago was the last day of Chalica, and tomorrow is the last day of Hanukkah. Saturday the 22nd is Winter Solstice, Tuesday the 25th is Christmas, and Wednesday the 26th is the first day of Kwanzaa. So much to celebrate!!!

Call the Senate: No More Blank Checks for War!
from MoveOn:

Last month, Majority Leader Reid and other Democratic leaders drew a line in the sand. They said there would be no more funding for the war in Iraq unless it was attached to a timeline for withdrawal.1 And they told President Bush that they were standing firm.

Well, now it looks like they're poised to cave in and give the president another blank check. Can you call Senators Barbara Boxer and Dianne Feinstein right away and tell them to oppose any deal that does not include a firm timeline to end the war?

Senator Barbara Boxer
Phone: 202-224-3553

Senator Dianne Feinstein
Phone: 202-224-3841

Kucinich: The OPC's Candidate of Choice!
After 7 days of voting, the preference is very clear: when asked "Which Democratic presidential candidate best represents the OPC values of Peace, Justice, Environment, and Democracy", 82% of you voted for Dennis Kucinich!

Hillary Clinton and Bill Richarson each garnered 7% of the vote, with "No Democrat" receiving 3%.

Look for a dedicated Dennis section in the right-side column of this page, where you can follow our candidate's campaign and find ways to contribute. i'll also be putting up new polls...check in often!

Shop for Peace!
There's a section in the right-side column with links to progressive and Peace-themed gift ideas. what would you add? what would you remove?
