The Occupation Project: A Campaign of Sustained Nonviolent Civil Disobedience to End the Iraq War

Voices for Creative Nonviolence has just launched the 'Occupation Project: A Campaign of Sustained Nonviolent Civil Disobedience to End the Iraq War' (visit site to sign-up). The campaign began today, February 5, and will run for eight weeks. The campaign challenges Representatives and Senators to publicly declare that they will vote against any further funding for the war in and occupation of Iraq.

Today a total of eight local congressional offices were occupied across the country, including the San Francisco offices of House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, and U.S. Senator Diane Feinstein (D-CA), and the Portland office of Senator Gordon Smith (R-OR). Members of Veterans For Peace, one of the 18 organizations endorsing the campaign, participated in an action at a congressional office in Fairbanks, Alaska.

Dan Pearson, a spokesperson for the Occupation Project, explained the campaign’s goal is to defeat the $93 billion “emergency supplemental” war funding bill that the Bush administration forwarded to Congress yesterday.

Listen to the Democracy Now! interview with Kathy Kelly, Executive Director of Voices for Creative Nonviolence.
