Women (and everybody else!) Against War

OK, people, it's that time again, time to stand up and


that's right, put those bodies on the line and stand up and be counted as someone who supports human rights and will not allow war crimes, either direct or by proxy, to be committed in your name.

US readers- there are 1,000's of people all over the world, including Israel, who are risking their lives, their jobs, whatever it is they hold dear, to protest this. Exercise your 1st Amendment Rights and join the vigils. By standing against Israel's aggressive invasion of Lebanon and the deaths or civilians, you also help yourself. How? By taking back your voice, the one Bush and Co have tried to silence, the one the Congress has refused to defend. You remember these guys- they work for you.

And in keeping with what Asa'ad AbuKhalil has been saying, this isn't about bashing Judaism. It is about protesting the unlawful incursion and resulting war crimes committed by Israel on Lebanon with US money and US-made arms.

So, here are a few places where you can make your presence known:
