From ctkeith at My Left Nutmeg:
70% of Ct voters are against the Iraq War and cite it as THE NUMBER ONE ISSUE that will determine their vote but since Joe Lieberman is on the WRONG SIDE of the issue, Nancy and Co. decided it wouldn't be in the CT. Democratic State Platform.
SHAME IS ALL I CAN MUSTER ABOUT BEING A CT DEMOCRAT TODAY.
We've just received confirmation that the planned State Democratic Platform for the 2006 elections has no mention of the War!
70% of CT residents oppose the war and CT kids are dying there. What's the Democratic Party going to do about it?
It's time for COW to mobilize. Please FORWARD this message to email@example.com to let us know you can come to one or both of these events:
THIS Thursday, May 11, 7:00 PM
State Democratic Party Platform Discussion:
179 Allyn Street, above Coach's bar, Hartford.
This meeting is open. Let's be there to insist that the platform include a call to end the war in Iraq!
Friday, May 19, 5:30 - 6:30 PM
Kickoff for State Democratic Party Nominating Convention
Hundreds of anti-war party activists will be inside the convention urging and organizing for anti-war candidates to be nominated, and for the Party to adopt an anti-war plank in the platform.
US Labor Against the War and COW will be demonstrating outside to support that fight.
People are needed both before and after this time slot, so if that hour isn't perfect for you, or you have more time to offer, we'll be there from about 5:00 PM to about 7:30 PM. But do your best to be there 5:30 to 6:30.
Please forward, and CALL YOUR FRIENDS to urge them to attend the convention demonstration with you!
