HELP! MEDICINES FOR FALLUJAH NEEDED NOW!
Today, as CODEPINK was busily preparing a year-end humanitarian mission to Iraq, we received an urgent message. It was from our dear friend Dahr Jamail, an amazing American independent journalist who has been risking his life to get the true story of Fallujah to the American public:
While George Bush was on the campaign trail talking about moral values, his administration was busy preparing the assault on Fallujah that was launched immediately after the election. The US military leveled virtually the entire city, killed hundreds of desperate civilians, refused to let humanitarian aid workers into the city, and has now left refugees without food, water and medicines.
We didn’t vote for this administration, but like it or not, we are responsible for its actions. We MUST show the Iraqis and the world community that there are indeed kind, compassionate Americans who are appalled by the immoral behavior of our government and want to help - not kill - the Iraqi people.
PLEASE HELP US GET MEDICAL AID TO THE PEOPLE OF FALLUJAH. We will send it immediately to a team of doctors who are anxiously awaiting our response.
SPREAD this email to at least 10 of your friends, relatives or coworkers.
KEEP INFORMED and ACTIVE. Here are three links to update you on the current crisis:
