From Just Foreign Policy: Oppose War Funding, Support Military Withdrawal Legislation (Click Here).
In the next several weeks, Congress is expected to be asked to approve $33 billion more for war in Afghanistan. The money will be used chiefly to pay for the current military escalation and the U.S. military’s offensive in the Afghan city of Kandahar planned for this summer. This week, Senator Feingold and Representative McGovern announced they are introducing legislation that would require the President to establish a timetable for the withdrawal of U.S. forces from Afghanistan.
Recently, WikiLeaks made public a classified military video (right) depicting the U.S. military killing over a dozen individuals, including two Reuters employees. A second report claims that U.S. forces covered-up details surrounding the slaying of five Afghan civilians — including two pregnant women — during a night raid in February. Killing of innocents will stop only when the war stops.

Voters for Peace is joining with 20 other anti-war organizations in making this week a call-in week on Afghanistan.
Congress has returned from recess and a war supplemental is on their agenda. They need to hear from constituents.
When you call you should ask there be no more war funding for Afghanistan, that a date be set an end date to U.S. occupation and that real peace negotiations begin.
A second call-in week will be scheduled when there is better intelligence on the timing of the war supplemental vote and possible amendments but it is important to lay the groundwork now. We expect the vote will happen before Friday, May 28, the start of the Congressional Memorial Day recess.
Please call both your Senators and your House Member. The Congressional hotline number is: (202) 224-3121. They will connect you to your representatives. Thank you, Kevin Zeese,Executive Director
