Support John Murtha

MURTHA STARTS SERIOUS DEBATE ON EXITING IRAQ

Urge Congress to End the War in Iraq
http://www.democrats.com/peoplesemailnetwork/76

Last Thursday, Rep. John Murtha dramatically called for a swift end to the war on Iraq and introduced this resolution:

"The deployment of United States forces in Iraq, by direction of Congress, is hereby terminated and the forces involved are to be redeployed at the earliest practicable date. A quick-reaction U.S. force and an over-the-horizon presence of U.S. Marines shall be deployed in the region. The United States of America shall pursue security and stability in Iraq through diplomacy."

The bill introduced by Republican Congressman Duncan Hunter and immediately voted down by the House on Friday grossly misrepresented Murtha's bill. Here is what happened on Friday:

Congressman Charles Rangel released a powerful statement in support of Murtha's bill:

Urge your Representatives to cosponsor Murtha's bill and two other excellent bills against the war: H.R. 4232 (Jim McGovern) to cut off funding for an ongoing occupation:

DEMAND REAL DEBATE IN HOUSE

The Republican Congress has defeated most anti-war bills against in committee, despite defections by a few courageous GOPers. So the Out of Iraq Caucus, chaired by Rep. Maxine Waters, is trying a new approach: a discharge petition. If a majority of House Members sign this petition to force a bill on Iraq onto the floor, with an open rule allowing amendments, those members seeking to end the war will be able to propose amendments and hold a debate as serious as the war itself.

OUT OF IRAQ EVENTS ON JAN. 7, 2006

After Downing Street and our coalition members are encouraging Representatives to hold Out of Iraq events in their districts. We've selected January 7th as a national day on which to hold as many events as possible, but other days can be chosen to fit the schedules of those involved. Progressive Democrats of America (PDA) is playing a large role in organizing these events and organized three town hall meetings on Iraq with Representatives in Massachusetts in November.

Get resources for events, sign up to attend one or to host one:

TELL CONGRESS TO PASS ANTI-TORTURE AMENDMENT

From Global Exchange: In the name of the "war on terrorism," the Bush administration has made torture part of the U.S. government’s standard operating procedure. From the Guantanamo Bay detention facility in Cuba to detention centers in Afghanistan and Iraq, reports have surfaced–not only from detainees and human rights organizations, but also from soldiers and members of the FBI—that U.S. officials are practicing torture and other forms of cruel and unusual punishment.

Torture is inhumane and illegal. The United States has signed the U.N. Convention Against Torture and Other Cruel, Inhuman and Degrading Punishment. It reads, "No exceptional circumstances whatsoever, whether a state of war or a threat of war, internal political instability or any other public emergency may be invoked as a justification of torture."

The U.S. Senate recently passed an anti-torture amendment introduced by Senator John McCain. The lopsided vote of 90 to 9 has drawn ire and a rare veto threat from the White House. Bush loyalists are looking to strip critical language from the amendment to the Defense Appropriations Bill (HR 2863), sparing the president from the spectacle of going to the mat to uphold the use of barbaric and universally-condemned practices.

The House-Senate conferees who are negotiating the final language of the amendment need to hear from you. Here is who they are and how to reach them:
