We are sending the following action alert on behalf of the Center for
Arms Control and Nonproliferation
a 27-year old sister organization to the Council for a Livable World.
Please call your member of Congress ASAP and urge them to prevent
supplemental appropriations funds from being used to attack Iran without
STOP FUNDING FOR AN ATTACK ON IRAN
URGENT ACTION NEEDED TODAY (WEDNESDAY, MARCH 14)
On Monday night, Rep. Nancy Pelosi and the Democratic leadership decided
to pull language from the Supplemental Appropriations bill, which stated
that no funds may be authorized for military operations in or related to
Iran unless specifically authorized by the Congress -- *in effect the
Democrats' pullback continues to abdicate Congress's war-making
authority to the Bush administration.* We DO have a chance to reverse
this in the House Appropriations committee, but we need you to make
phone calls to your congressional representative TODAY.
* I'm calling from (city, state) to urge (your representative's
name here) to stop a rush to war with Iran.
* I urge Representative (their name here) call on the House
leadership and the House Appropriations Committee to reinstate language
in the Supplemental Appropriations Bill that would require the president
to seek congressional approval before launching military action against
* Thank you for your time.
NUMBER FOR CONGRESS: *(202) 224-3121*
The Supplemental Appropriations bill is scheduled to be marked up in
full committee Thursday (MARCH 15) at 9 am. Please call your
congressional representative ASAP. Even after that time you might be
able to make a difference. Although calls made today will have the
greatest chance of success, you can keep calling your congressional
representative even after Thursday to try to change the bill once it
reaches the floor of the House.
