Bail Out the People, not the Pentagon
The Pentagon is seeking BILLIONS and BILLIONS from Congress in the next COVID relief stimulus package. Why? To protect the mega-profits of arms dealers and defense contractors. As Congress continues to provide urgent and vital relief to the people of the United States in response to the coronavirus pandemic, they must oppose appropriating any additional money to the Pentagon — whose already overflowing coffers stand at over $756 billion in fiscal year (FY) 2020 — greater than 50 percent of total annual discretionary spending. We say ENOUGH. Congress must focus their attention on the national pandemic response and economic relief for people across the United States rather than providing more money for the Pentagon’s already stuffed coffers. We demand Congress bail out the people, not the Pentagon and arms dealers in the next coronavirus relief package!
We Demand a Global Ceasefire
None of us have ever seen anything like the coronavirus crisis. The whole world, all at once, has been brought to its knees, is shut down, and individual governments are working, sometimes together, to defeat the global pandemic. Because the truth is, it’s going to take all of us, everywhere, doing our part. That’s what every doctor says, every scientist and public health official tells us. Yet in far too many corners of the world, some of us are still trying to kill one another on the battlefield. And we are seeing before how the military-first approach responds to global health crises — it deprioritizes human needs. Most of the news right now is soul crushing, but it’s also heartening to see so many people doing things big and small to try and make it through this. So let’s do something BIG. Add your name NOW and join the chorus for peace and tell U.S. leaders that YOU support a global ceasefire!
Stop War with Iran
A crisis in the Middle East is escalating extremely fast. The Trump administration ordered a military attack that killed Iran's top military commander, Qassem Soleimani, and now tensions in the region and between the U.S. and Iran are more urgent than ever. This action by the Trump administration has pushed the United States closer to an unnecessary and illegal war with Iran. And it's on top of Trump's incendiary and dangerous tweets about the U.S. military being “cocked and loaded” to retaliate against Iran even further. There is no greater urgency than right now, and we need you to get loud. Add your name and tell Congress to act immediately to stop a catastrophic war with Iran. If this sounds familiar, that’s because we’ve seen this build-up to war before. The Trump administration is, almost verbatim, using the same playbook used by Dick Cheney and now-National Security Advisor John Bolton in the Bush administration to stoke a devastating war with Iraq in 2002. We all remember how well that turned out, and we can’t let it happen again. Congress can and MUST stop the Trump administration from drumming up a war with Iran — and we need to dramatically increase the pressure on our representatives to act before it’s too late. Add your name to this petition to tell Congress to make STOPPING WAR WITH IRAN an all-out urgent priority NOW.
