by Peace Child
Sunday Feb 19th, 2006 11:54 PM
"Making Change / Creating Peace" was intended as an antidote for people who find themselves asking, "But what can I do about it??" Local Santa Cruz peace advocates invited Karen Meredith of Goldstar Families Speak Out, David Swanson of http://www.afterdowningstreet.org and Medea Benjamin of CODEPINK Women for Peace to talk about practical ways people can bring about urgently needed change in the leadership of this country and an end to war.

With the daily barrage of bad news from the corporate and indy press, more and more Americans are finding themselves in opposition to nearly all of the Bush/Cheney Administration practices. A majority of people polled in the United States say they oppose the war and the president's claims of unrestricted wiretapping powers. For many people, this increased disgust equals increased frustration because they don't know how to channel their deep concerns.

"Making Change / Creating Peace" was intended as an antidote for people who find themselves asking, "But what can I do about it??" Local Santa Cruz peace advocates invited Karen Meredith of Goldstar Families Speak Out, David Swanson of http://www.afterdowningstreet.org and Medea Benjamin of CODEPINK Women for Peace to talk about practical ways people can bring about urgently needed change in the leadership of this country and an end to war.

Clearly and concisely, the speakers explained how and why we need to:

-Pursue impeachment hearings

-Hold corporate media responsible

-Continue to make the Iraq War a political issue

-Sign onto to http://www.womensaynotowar.org

-Participate in the campaign to bring back the California National Guard from Iraq

-CALL (202) 647-4000 and DEMAND that Condoleeza Rice allow war widow, Anwar Jawad, to obtain a Visa to the United States

"In a time of universal deceit, telling the truth is a revolutionary act." -George Orwell

Each of these speakers confronts us with harsh reality and challenges us to take decisive action to take back our country and unplug the war machine.
