Join Peace Movement at Presidential Debate, Hempstead, Wed Oct 15

As a member organization of United for Peace & Justice/NYC, the New York State Communist Party is joining with others in actions outside the Presidential Debates to remind the candidates that we can't afford war and occupation. We know that there is a difference between a candidate who jokes about bombing Iran and casually talks of 100 years of occupation and one that is for setting a deadline to bring the troops home. Here's the call:

Tell the candidates:
Bring All the Troops Home Now!
Oct. 15th

Dear Friends,

Everyone is talking about the elections: on the train, at work, in the coffee shop, in the classroom. But what is the role of the peace and justice movement in this frenzied season? More than ever, we must keep doing what we have been doing for almost 6 years: speak out against the war and make sure that all the candidates know that the people of this country want all the troops to be brought home NOW!

You have two opportunities to let the presidential candidates know how you feel:
