2) Tuesday, May 18 demonstration (leaflet attached as pdf)

The Twin Cities Peace Campaign, Merriam Park Neighbors for Peace, Anti-War Committee and Women Against Military Madness are organizing a demonstration at the office of Representative Betty McCollum on Tuesday, May 18, at 4:00 pm, to call on her to vote against funding for the escalation of the war on Afghanistan.

No Funding for Escalation of the War in Afghanistan
Say No to U.S. Attack on Kandahar
Out of Afghanistan – Bring the Troops Home Now!

Office of Representative Betty McCollum
Blair Arcade Building
165 Western Ave North, St. Paul
(corner of Selby and Western)
Tuesday, May 18, 4:00 pm

Congress will soon vote on a $33 billion supplemental funding bill for the U.S. war in Afghanistan. The funds will be used to escalate the war, including an attack this summer on the Afghan city of Kandahar. Fourth District Congressional Representative Betty McCollum has made it clear that she intends to support this additional $33 billion for the war.

The war in Afghanistan will not make the world safer; the escalation can only lead to more horrendous loss of life and increased hostility toward the United States.

We hope you will join us on May 18 to let Representative McCollum know that the people of Minnesota do not support this war.

We also ask that you call her office today to tell her to Vote “NO” on the $33 billion supplemental funding for the war in Afghanistan: 651-224-9191 (St.Paul) and 202-225-6631 (Washington, D.C.).

For more information 612-522-1861 or 612-827-5364.
