Come Die-in at Speaker Pelosi's home to demonstrate the human cost of any potential attack on Iran by the United States or its allies. There will be a non-arrestable component of the demonstration and we will have an altar featuring photos, candles and momentos of people inside Iran.
As the Bush administration maneuvers to bomb Iran, Congress has been a willing enabler of the administration's crimes of aggression. Pelosi is one of the "gang of eight" - congressional leaders that granted the administration the powers (and $400 million) for covert operations inside Iran to destabilize the regime and potentially clear the path for war. Congress and Speaker Pelosi have the ability to stop the administration's war plans. They can pass a resolution requiring congressional approval for any future military action.
Why her house? A die-in at Pelosi's home will highlight the human cost of the bombing, in residential neighborhoods like Pelosi's, and it'll get her attention. She represents an anti-war district - her constituents are serious about ending our current wars and preventing any future ones. As Speaker of the House, Nancy Pelosi can do more to block the administration's efforts for another murderous war.
