NJ Peace Action Statement On Flotilla Attack

    We at NJ Peace Action deeply regret and are outraged by the deadly Israeli raid of the flotilla bringing humanitarian aid to Gaza.  The flotilla was attacked by Israeli naval vessels about 50 miles offshore — in international waters.  Although the people on the ships told the Israelis that they were unarmed civilians, some ten people have been killed.  We are very much saddened that a peaceful effort to deliver critically needed aid and food to the people in blockaded Gaza has ended so violently.

Afghanistan: We need to continue pushing for H.R. 2404, which requires an Afghanistan exit strategy before the end of 2009. It now has up to 90 co-sponsors, including Reps. Donald Payne, Steven Rothman and Rush Holt from New Jersey. We need to persuade others to support it.

Bring the Troops Home!

Today, the Iraqi people are celebrating the beginning of U.S. troop withdrawals as 'National Sovereignty Day'. This, because under the Status of Forces Agreement (SOFA) signed by the Iraqi government and the Bush administration, all U.S. combat troops are to withdraw from Iraq's cities and towns on June 30th, today. After six long years of war and occupation, it is no wonder Iraqis are celebrating this first symbolic benchmark.
