Gandhi Peace Brigade / Ask Your Mayor to Stop A War

Dear Friends,

Here's a way to prevent an attack on Iran and eliminate all nuclear weapons by 2020:

The U.S. Conference of Mayors will be holding its annual meeting June 20-24 in Miami: Two great resolutions have been submitted to the International Affairs Committee by bold, progressive mayors. Help them find as many co-sponsors as possible by contacting your mayor and asking him/her to support:
1) a resolution opposing military intervention in Iran.
2) a resolution supporting the elimination of all nuclear weapons by 2020.

The U.S. Conference of Mayors is composed of mayors from cities with populations of 30,000 or more Invite your mayor to join Mayors for Peace, an international organization headed by the mayors of Hiroshima and Nagasaki, with more than 2,200 members in 129 countries. U.S. membership is currently 124. Find out here if your mayor is a member and if not, this explains how he/she can join:

Contact Jackie Cabasso; (510) 839-5877 if you have any questions or if you would like to be added as a co-sponsor to either or both of the resolutions. Jackie is the North American Coordinator for Mayor for Peace and the Executive Director for the Western States Legal Foundation.

Peace and Freedom,
Jes & Leslie

The Campaign for a New American Policy on Iran invites you to "Time to Talk with Iran" in Washington DC on Tuesday, June 10. Members of Congress, celebrities, former officials, and other citizens will use a row of 60's-era red "hotline" telephones to talk directly to ordinary Iranian citizens. If you don't live in the DC area, you can participate in a nationwide Call-in to Congress for Diplomacy with Iran. Click here to see how:
