Last weekend was a truly inspiring show of public support for a US troop withdrawal from Iraq. An eye-popping 500,000 peace voters and activists from across the country gathered in Washington, DC to rally, sing, march and lobby for an end to the occupation of Iraq. More than 1,000 people stayed through Monday for what was one of the largest congressional lobby days in our Capitol's history. To everyone who attended an event in DC or your hometown, thank you for making it a success!
If you missed last week's rallies, there is still plenty for you to do. Nationwide acts of civil disobedience are set to begin the first week of February; read below to find out how to get involved! We also have an update on legislation that is moving through Congress and we discuss the potential of a US war on Iran.
