>TUESDAY, DECEMBER 6, IS NATIONAL CALL-IN DAY TO END THE WAR
>
>Tuesday is the day! Congress Members get back to DC today, and we want to welcome them. We're asking you to call, Email, and fax your Congress Members and ask for an end to the war in Iraq. This National Call-In Day - organized by Democrats.com, Progressive Democrats of America, and After Downing Street, together with United for Peace and Justice and many other peace organizations - aims to flood Congress Members' offices with our message for bringing this war to a close.
>
>Our message is simple: "I am calling to let Rep. ______ know that I think the Iraq war is wrong and all our troops should be brought home immediately!"
>
>Take Action Below, or call the Capitol toll free 888-818-6641.

>IMPEACHPAC RESPONDS TO ATTACK BY ROLL CALL
>
>This morning, Roll Call (the Capitol Hill newspaper) published an attack on ImpeachPAC - and its first endorsed candidate, Tony Trupiano - by "non-partisan" analyst Stu Rothenberg. Trupiano has promised to work for the impeachment of Bush and Cheney, and Rothenberg has declared this entirely unacceptable.

>Democrats.com and After Downing Street are joining with Backbone Campaign, Progressive Democrats of America, Democracy Cell Project, Cities for Peace, MilitaryFreeZone.Org, Operation Ceasefire, United for Peace and Justice, U.S. Tour of Duty, Hip Hop Caucus, Democracy Rising, World Can't Wait, Gold Star Families for Peace, PeaceMajority Report, Global Exchange, Bring Them Home Campaign, UP (United Progressives) for Democracy, 20 20 Vision, Impeach Bush Coalition, and Peace Action in asking you to help organize public meetings or smaller gatherings on Saturday, January 7, on the topic of ending the war.
>
>The war is costing us dearly in lives, in security, and in resources. We need this national day to make our demand heard and bring the war to an end. (Events can also be held on days other than the 7th, to fit the schedules of those involved.)
>
>Because the holidays are coming, the time to organize these events is now. Here's how:
>
>STEP 1: Identify an individual or organization or coalition to take the lead in organizing an event.
>
>STEP 2: Post the event so that people can sign up for it and other organizers can contact you and work together. Whoever posts the event will have control of and be able to communicate with the list of people who sign up to attend it. It is also possible to post an event without many details and fill them in later.

>STEP 3: See the resources posted on that website, which include tips on contacting your Congress Member. Invite him or her to host the event or to be your guest at an event you host, whichever they and you prefer. You can also hold an event without a Congress Member, such as a panel, a discussion circle, or a house party, and it's easy to do so with the resources provided here:
