let's put our money where are knowledge is!

how about sending a small contribution to these fine people, who are standing up and putting their lives on the line to do the right thing?

the lying, rotten scoundrels in the Bush administration just want us all to shut up and roll over while they trash our nation and turn it into a police state, even as they loot our national treasure. and every day another one of our brothers, sisters, sons, daughters, best friends is killed because of the Bush-Cheney "Empire."

are we just peons, living off the crumbs of corporate largesse? at least send ten bucks to these brave people! and get out to Harvard Square, the Common, anywhere and talk to your neighbors. we have got to stop the criminal gang of lunatics now occupying the White House before our civil rights and our futures are ruined forever!

send a few days of coffee money to these folks:

Bring Them Home Now!
c/o Veterans for Peace
438 N Skinker Blvd
St. Louis, MO 63130

their statement of purpose:

BRING THEM HOME NOW! is a campaign of military families, veterans, active duty personnel, reservists and others opposed to the ongoing war in Iraq and galvanized to action by George W. Bush's inane and reckless challenge to armed Iraqis resisting occupation to "Bring 'em on."

Our mission is to mobilize military families, veterans, and GIs themselves to demand: an end to the occupation of Iraq and other misguided military adventures; and an immediate return of all US troops to their home duty stations.

The truth is coming out. The American public was deceived by the Bush administration about the motivation for and intent of the invasion of Iraq. It is equally apparent that the administration is stubbornly and incompetently adhering to a destructive course. Many Americans do not want our troops there. Many military families do not want our troops there. Many troops themselves do not want to be there. The overwhelming majority of Iraqis do not want US troops there.

Our troops are embroiled in a regional quagmire largely of our own government's making. These military actions are not perceived as liberations, but as occupations, and our troops are now subject to daily attacks. Meanwhile, without a clear mission, they are living in conditions of relentless austerity and hardship. At home, their families are forced to endure extended separations and ongoing uncertainty.

As military veterans and families, we understand that hardship is sometimes part of the job. But there has to be an honest and compelling reason to impose these hardships and risks on our troops, our families, and our communities. The reasons given for the occupation of Iraq does not rise to this standard.

Without just cause for war, we say bring the troops home now!
