"Appeal for redress" web site- RE: soldiers addressing Congress for Iraq withdrawal!
Edited on Mon Oct-23-06 08:07 PM by BeHereNow
Here you go DU-
I found the official website for the soldiers requesting
whistle blower protection as they petition Congress for
US withdrawal from Iraq.
http://www.appealforredress.org/index.php

From the home page:
"An Appeal for Redress from the War in Iraq
Many active duty, reserve, and guard service members are concerned about the war in Iraq and support the withdrawal of U.S. troops. The Appeal for Redress provides a way in which individual service members can appeal to their Congressional Representative and US Senators to urge an end to the U.S. military occupation. The Appeal messages will be delivered to members of Congress at the time of the Martin Luther King, Jr. Day in January 2007.
The wording of the Appeal for Redress is short and simple. It is patriotic and respectful in tone.
As a patriotic American proud to serve the nation in uniform, I respectfully urge my political leaders in Congress to support the prompt withdrawal of all American military forces and bases from Iraq . Staying in Iraq will not work and is not worth the price. It is time for U.S. troops to come home.

If you agree with this message, click here.
The Appeal for Redress is sponsored by active duty service members based in the Norfolk area and by a sponsoring committee of veterans and military family members. The Sponsoring committee consists of Iraq Veterans Against the War, Veterans For Peace, and Military Families Speak Out.
Members of the military have a legal right to communicate with their member of Congress. To learn more about the rights and restrictions that apply to service members click here.
Attorneys and counselors experienced in military law are available to help service members who need assistance in countering any attempts to suppress this communication with members of Congress.
Several members of Congress have expressed interest in receiving the Appeal for Redress and have issued the following statement:
"We respect and welcome this initiative from our brave men and women in uniform. We look forward to receiving the Appeals and sharing your important perspectives with colleagues in the Congress."

Click here to send the Appeal to your elected representatives. "

PASS IT ON!

"good news" recently that some of the topics
less spectacular but more important
do not get the attention they deserve

12. I guess every poster feels that THEIR thread is "important"
However in this case, I think it is TRUE!
We need to activate the DU activists on this action!!!
Talk about "Supporting the troops!"
Here it is, at long last, the turning point we have been waiting for.
No troops- no war.
Buh-bye neocons.

As for your thread, if I hadn't seen your cross-link from LBN

cause "appeal for redress" was not a known term for me

22. Given the generals protest + 100+ joined the redress demand up to now, this needs KICK

This message needs to get out to troops and their families. Surely DU has some connections to work.
