Contact: Nancy Kricorian (646) 234-8529, CodePink New York


Part of my job is to be a good listener” – Senator Hillary Clinton, fundraising letter, November 2005

But she's not listening to her constituents when it comes to how they feel about the war in Iraq; in fact she said Congressman John Murtha's call for an immediate withdrawal was  “a big mistake.”

We want our troops home now and we're going to bird-dog Hillary Clinton around town and around the state and around the country telling her so. On Sunday she'll be giving the keynote and receiving an honorary degree from Yeshiva University at their annual Hanukkah dinner---and we will be there.
