STOP THE WAR!  END THE FUNDING!

PSC DELIVERS 1,300 PETITIONS & RALLIES
AT SENATOR HILLARY CLINTON'S NYC OFFICE

Presenting Petitions to Clinto Aide

1,300 petitions to Clinton aide Cleon Edwards
Thursday, May 24, 2007.  After a spirited rally and picket line, the PSC delivered 1,300 petitions to Senator Hillary Clinton's NYC office calling for de-funding the war, immediate withdrawal, full veterans' benefits, redirecting tax dollars and money for reconstruction under Iraqi control.

The petition was part of a national campaign by U.S. Labor Against the War, an organization of 180 union locals and several state federations and municipal labor coalitions representing over 4 million trade unionists.

Later in the day, Senator Clinton became one of only 14 senators to vote AGAINST* supplemental funding for the war requested by the Bush administration. A large and growing anti-war movement has put increasing pressure on the Democratic congress -- and will continue to do so until the war is de-funded and the troops are brought home.

*Four Democratic presidential candidates in Congress voted against the supplemental funding -- Clinton, Dodd, Kucinich and Obama.  A fifth, Biden, voted for it.  Click here to see how your representative and senators voted.
