Rep. Waters Encourages Members of Congress to March Against the Iraq War
U.S. Representative Maxine Waters (CA-35) today sent a letter to her Congressional colleagues urging them to participate in the anti-war rally planned for Saturday, January 27, 2007.
The text of the letter is below:
January 22, 2007
By now, you should have received an invitation from United for Peace and Justice to participate in the anti-Iraq war rally planned for January 27th. I encourage you to march with me and thousands of other individuals from around the country who want to bring our troops home. Members of Congress who participate in the march will be given a prime spot at the head of the march to highlight their opposition to the war.
Who: Members of Congress and Concerned Americans
What: Rally and March on Washington calling for a conclusion to the Iraq war
When: Saturday, January 27, 2007 @ 11:00 AM
Where: National Mall, between 3rd & 7th Streets
The American people have spoken – they want an end to the war in Iraq. This rally will provide Members of Congress an opportunity to show their support for ending the war in Iraq.
Many participants in the march will also take part in a ‘lobby day' on Monday, January 29, 2007. They will request a meeting with their Member of Congress to share their views on the war. I encourage you to welcome them and to meet with them to hear their concerns about continuing the Iraq war. I also invite you to attend a book fair with leading authors of books on the Iraq war on Monday, January 29 from 2:00 to 4:00 in 1100 Longworth House Office Building.
Member of Congress
