Axis of Logic:
We are well aware of the sense of helplessness in the United States felt by people regarding protests and letters to Washington. Those feelings of futility are understandable considering how the regime has suppressed and controlled anti-war protests in the past and how politicians ignore letters from their constituents. However, this time may be different.
- only 9 percent of US people supporting an attack on Syria and the vast majority opposed - and
- after the vote to reject Cameron's push for war by their peers in the UK Parliament this week and
- mid-term elections coming next year ...
Members of the US Congress may be rethinking their positions. It's the right time to put pressure on them and we urge all those who are able to join in this resistance
movement. ANSWER has made it simple and easy (below) to find addresses and send letters to congressional representatives in your state. Also times and locations of local protests near you are provided. For all those who are able, please join with other like-minded citizens in the March on Washington DC next Saturday, September 7, 2013. You'll be uplifted by the energy of thousands of others, encourage the others and look back with pride that you let your voice be heard.

Mass Demonstration at the Capitol!
Saturday, Sept. 7, 12 Noon
Tell Congress: Vote 'No War on Syria!'
Time is of the essence. We have been in the streets all over the country. The opposition to a new war is everywhere. This forced the administration to step back from imminent bombings.
But the danger also exists for an even larger war against Syria as Obama seeks to make a deal with right-wing hawks like John McCain, Lindsey Graham and others.
Now is the time for the people to step up pressure on Congress and demand that they vote NO to any resolution authorizing a military attack on Syria.
On Saturday, September 7, people are descending on Congress for a major demonstration as Congress returns to Washington, D.C., and prepares to vote. This demonstration is initiated by a broad ad hoc coalition called the Vote No War Against Syria Coalition. If you or your organization would like to be an endorser of the Sept. 7 demonstration, email -
Those who can will stay over in Washington for daily demonstrations, and to maintain a round-the-clock visible anti-war presence at the U.S. Capitol building beginning Saturday, September 7 and continuing daily as Congress meets to take up and vote on the resolution.

Letter-writing campaign: Send an email letter right now to your elected representatives in Congress demanding that they vote NO on the Syria war resolution.
