50 CITIES FOR PEACE, 50 MORE PENDING NATION-WIDE...JOIN US!!
Dear UFPJ activists:
Please be aware of the Cities for Peace Campaign, a subgroup of UFPJ,
www.citiesforpeace.org, coordinated by Institute for Policy Studies.
We are about to reach City #49 Monday night with Cleveland OH. The big
push was to reach 50 by the State of the Union. Please let me know if
you know of any cities with an anti-war resolution already passed that
is not on our list of 48...see the website for that list, for the
resolutions, for a list of over 50 more campaigns currently underway and
for a Resolution Tool Kit for activists and councilmembers to
initiate an anti-war resolution in their own communities. This is a
highly empowering grassroots effort with tremendous potential power.
Think of the effect such resolutions had during the anti-apartheid
struggle. Spread the word and start a campaign in your community!
For NYC activists--an anti-war resolution submitted by councilmember
Bill Perkins languishes in the committee of council member Jose Serrano
Jr. Serrano Jr needs to be intensely lobbied as does the Speaker of the
City Guilford Miller. As you can imagine, a anti-war resolution passed
by the city of New York will be international news. Please help if you
can. Please keep me posted on your efforts
