I haven't forwarded UFPJ in a while. There is a turning tide. Grab
your surfboard! If we pile on, unity in the progressive community will
be OBSERVED, we are hoping that will lead to the desired change.

You Live So Close! Mobilize and Volunteer for Peace on 10.2.10 (Please forward widely!)

"We have guided missiles and misguided men." --- Martin Luther King

A clear demonstration of this is the FY2011 budget with *$726 billion* slated for war and military spending vs. *$51 billion* for education... You do the math... Hint: Resources wasted in war and bloated Pentagon spending short-changes our basic needs at home. Most significant are the human resources lost and lives destroyed by endless war. The world cannot prosper under violence and endless threats of violence, and our peaceful anti-war message is a cornerstone of the people's agenda.

*October 2*, One Nation Working Together March on Washington DC, is the Peace Movement's opportunity to mobilize for the largest gathering of progressive organizations in a long time - joining unionists, civil rights groups, immigrant rights leaders and social justice advocates to remind Washington to *Fund Jobs, Not War*. Our visible presence is required - The Peace Table needs volunteer help.
With *only 6 days left*, 10.2.10 has the potential to be the largest demonstration in decades, but we need your help to make sure it's big. Help create a clear, strong voice and visible presence for peace and prosperity to One Nation. - Please volunteer [ ] to help ensure our message is heard and seen on 10.2.10!

- Please forward this email to *all* your colleagues, students, neighbors, friends and family so they know not to miss this historic occasion.

- Visit [ ] and [ ] for more information (events, transport, housing, volunteering, etc.). Download fliers here [ ].
