Dear CCDS members,
Jobs Not War! follow this link to sign the petition: https://bit.ly/jobs-not-wars-CCDS
is a sponsoring partner of the online petition Campaign "Jobs Not
Wars" initiated by US Labor Against the War. Pressure the President
and Congress now -- we want jobs, social security and peace! Other
sponsors include UFPJ, Progressive Democrats of America, Peace Action, Labor Campaign
for Single Payer Healthcare, New Priorities Network, and others. (
(The campaign website: https://jobs-not-wars.org.)
The petition will be presented to Pres. Obama and Congress in January. If the petition campaign is successful, it may lead to an issue-oriented action in Washington DC during Inauguration week. The purpose is to have a vehicle to begin pressure from the progressive and left direction soon after the 2012 election.
Please circulate the petition to your local listserves -- and consider how to do outreach to different groups and constituencies to persuade them to also circulate the petition.
