Join me in telling the IL National Guard not to deploy against peaceful NATO protesters
I just sent an email to the head of the Illinois National Guard urging him not to activate his troops against peaceful protesters, including Iraq and Afghanistan veterans who will be marching at the NATO summit on May 20. Iraq and Afghanistan Veterans Against the War are joining with thousands to nonviolently demonstrate against NATO's 11-year war in Afghanistan and for rebuilding our communities here at home. Veterans participating in the march will be ceremoniously turning in their medals to NATO generals at the end of the march.Join me in urging Major General Enyart of the Illinois National Guard to ensure that his soldiers stand down in solidarity with the peaceful NATO summit protest by sending him an email: org2.democracyinaction.org/o/5966/p/dia/action/public/?action_KEY=10650.
