Dear Member of Congress from Queens,
The Administration is proposing and the U.S. Congress is considering another “Authorization of Use of Military Force” (AUMF) — a broad approval for more war.
This is the last thing we need. A green light for a third Iraq War.
These wars are not making us safer but are generating enemies. They are not surgical operations, but mass killings, as well as assaults on the natural environment and the public budget — not to mention excuses for curtailing civil liberties.
We oppose any new authorization for the use of military force. We call for the immediate repeal of the authorization passed by Congress in 2001 and 2002.
Respectfully, we request a meeting in your district office to discuss these urgent matters.
