I just joined a global virtual peace march demanding that the new US Congress stop President Bush’s escalation in Iraq and demand a real peace plan, and I thought you might be interested. Please see the email below.
Subject: Join Saturday’s global peace march… without Leaving Your House!
This Saturday, hundreds of thousands of Americans will march on Washington DC to demand peace and justice in Iraq and the Middle East. We can be there too, raising a global voice of solidarity — through our own worldwide virtual march. Time is short, so add your voice and join the march today!
Avaaz supporters in Washington have offered to carry real banners and placards at the US demonstration – showing how many internet marchers from all round the world are joining in. We will carry the flag of each country that generates more than 500 internet marchers, so tell your friends!
With American opposition to this war mounting, 45,000 of us from over 100 countries have already joined the call to oppose Bush’s military escalation and demand a real plan to end this war.
Can we get 75,000 – even 100,000 people from round the world to join the march before Saturday? Click here to join the march –
This could signal the rebirth of the US peace movement. We need to show them the world is on their side. Let’s bring our call for peace to the streets of power in Washington. Join the global peace march and tell your friends today!
