President Obama pledged to start bringing troops home from Afghanistan in July.
But the Pentagon is digging in its heels, and the administration is talking about keeping tens of thousands of soldiers in Afghanistan past 2014.
So will the July withdrawal be a credible step towards ending the war or a photo-op? The Pentagon is making its case. Congress is finally becoming more skeptical of the war, and we have between now and the end of June to make sure they push back.
Peace Action West is holding a virtual march on Congress to cut through the politics and make it personal.
They need to hear from people like you who believe we must end the war. If you sign this petition, Peace Action West will send a toy soldier in your name to remind members of Congress of the lives that are on the line. Please sign this petition and send your soldier today.

I think we should end the war in Afghanistan and bring the troops home.
President Obama pledged to start bringing troops home from Afghanistan in July. The Pentagon is pushing hard on President Obama to make the July withdrawal as small as possible. Meanwhile, troops are facing catastrophic injuries despite the military's dubious claims of progress.
I believe we must end this war, so I'm joining Peace Action West in urging you to push back on the Pentagon and bring our troops home.
