Take Action: Support Egypt's New Freedom and Democracy
We need to keep up the pressure on our government to not subvert the efforts of the Egyptian people for democracy (an all-too familiar pattern of U.S. foreign policy). Contact Doris Matsui or your representative and President Obama and tell them that the U.S. must respect the right of the Egyptian people to build a new government according to their own interests, not those of the U.S. military or corporations. The U.S. must end all military aid, only providing aid for humanitarian purposes. The U.S. government must also put pressure on Israel to insure that Israel does not interfere.
Congress: 202-224-3121; White House: 202-456-1111.

Take Action: Support Democracy at Sac Co-op
If you shop at or belong to the Sac Natural Foods Co-op, fill out a comment card in the store or email the Board president, sjbrancamp [at] aol.com, that you support: 1) members being able to vote on the Human Rights Initiative (FMI: http://www.sacbds.org/sac-co-op) and 2) allowing Sacramento Area Peace Action and Sacramento BDS to table in front of the store.
