This is the first call to anyone interested in participating in a bus
trip to Washington, D.C. on the weekend of Sept. 14-16 for a national
anti-war protest and march. This action is being organized to
coincide with the anticipated testimony of General David Petraeus and
Ambassador Ryan Crocker on the progress of the troop surge in Iraq, as
well as the debate over the next war supplemental spending bill in
Congress. For more information about the weekend's activities in
D.C., please visit this web site below.
