Dear MoveOn member,
Tonight the president is expected to announce a policy of escalation in Iraq. We have to stop it, and the 24 hours after his speech are going to be critical in framing the debate. Congress and the press need to know that there's widespread opposition to this reckless plan.

MoveOn members have already organized hundreds of Emergency Rallies to Stop Escalation in Iraq for tomorrow night. We really need to have a strong turnout at these rallies so the message is heard loud and clear: Escalation is the wrong answer. Can you attend a rally near you in San Francisco tomorrow?

Here are the details:

Momentum is on our side—263,200 of us have signed the petition and we've made 8,100 calls to Congress opposing escalation and this is just the beginning. The next step is to take our message to the public square with these rallies. All you have to do is show up to the event closest to you—the host will have signs and leaflets to pass out.

Stopping escalation is an important part of a strategy to getting out of Iraq. "Stay the Course" was rejected by the voters. If escalation is repudiated that leaves only one option: a responsible exit.

We're going to take our message to the doorsteps of congressional offices across the country. We really need you with us. Click below to sign up.

Thanks for all you do.
