Camp OUT NOW - Peaceoftheaction.org - Begins March 13
Details at Peaceoftheaction.org
SPREAD THE WORD!!! THE US MILITARY/CORPORATE EMPIRE IS DESTINED TO CRUMBLE. COME BE PART OF A HISTORIC ACTION!
The only way to peace is through the people.
Camp OUT NOW is the boldest and bravest action ever envisioned by and for peace.
Camp OUT NOW's stated objective is to: "Clog Washington, DC every week day through diffuse Civil Resistance (CR) actions to have the effect of tampering with 'business as usual' in the Capital of the United States of America."
Our demands are simple:
* Troops out of the Middle East, which includes drones, permanent bases, contractors
and torture/detention facilities.
Most of the rest of the world is aware that the US is a Military/Corporate Empire and that the spread of this Empire is harmful globally to peace, the environment, and economic health. Part of Camp OUT NOW's mission is to bring awareness to Americans about the profound cost to all of us from this Empire.
We need as many people as possible who realize that time is running short for us to truly affect change by commitment and dedication to humanity through the end to the US Empire (and its subsidiaries).
Beginning March 13th, we will erect a tent city on the grounds of the Washington Monument to house, feed and otherwise care for everyone who participates and needs a place to stay.
Your commitment can range from the entire action: Until our demands are met; or any other chunk of time that you are available.
Acts of civil resistance will begin on Monday, March 22nd and we will end when the troops start to come home.
Individual commitment will entail an at least a once a week CR mission and
support to the group at large through contributing to the running and infrastructure
of our encampment and the care and feeding of activists.
9/11 Whistleblower Coleen Rowley Endorses Peace Of The Action
I happened to be sitting in the audience at the 2005 "Vets for Peace" Conference in Dallas when Cindy Sheehan announced that she had decided to go to Bush's ranch in Crawford to demand to know "what noble cause" her son and other American soldiers had died for in Iraq. Cindy said she was prepared to camp out in the Crawford ditch if she had to.
Camp Casey proved a great inspiration to thousands, galvanizing the country to realize how wrong that war was and to take their own action to end it.
Guess what? It's five years later and Cindy has decided to camp out again, this time at the Washington Monument, right inside the politicians' bubble and next to their seats of power. Let's all set up camp again! Our country clearly needs its citizens' input to end its insane military quest for empire. We all need to go help Cindy demand a "peace of the action".
The people demand a peace of the action.
