ACTION ALERT: Just Say NO! to Military Intervention in Syria

ACTION ALERT: Just Say NO! to Military Intervention in Syria

The recent use of chemical weapons on civilians in Syria demands a response…  a nonviolent response. War criminals should be held accountable for war crimes, but a US attack on Syria will not do this. Whether a limited Clinton-esque salvo of cruise missiles or wider military intervention, a US/allied attack on Syria will be ineffective and only add to bloodshed and violence on the ground.  MLK warned us about “guided missiles and misguided men”… it’s time to heed his words and stop a counter-productive attack on Syria. “War is NOT the answer!”

TAKE ACTION! 3 Ways to Say NO! to Military Intervention in Syria

1. Tell Obama: via an email (FCNL action alert) or via a call to the White House comment line 202-456-1111 (as suggested by a Peace Action action alert)

2. Attend/Organize a Peace Vigil/Demonstration: the Columbia Women in Black peace vigil is every Wednesday 5-6pm at the Statehouse (Main & Gervais)… please join us this Wednesday! (or attend/organize a local vigil … Contact Carolina Peace, we will help connect you!)

3. Write a Letter to the Editor to your local newspaper opposing military intervention.  Keep it short and to the point.
