Falsche Anti-Kriegspetitionen II
Women for Peace / Women United Against War
Originaltext der falschen Petition
Subject: Women for Peace
Today I understand that 25 Congresswomen in the US House of
Representatives walked out -- and refused to participate in the vote
to give Bush war powers --- they were led by Barbara Bell of
California and they took up residence on the White House lawn.....
They say women can change the world. Here is a chance!
I am part of a nationwide effort to unite women against war.
We have drafted a statement here and ask you, if you are so moved,
to send it out to as many women and women's groups as you can for
endorsement. If you are not part of a group/organization, you can
also sign as an individual.
If you feel so moved, please sign below, giving your or your
organization's name and location. Then please cut and paste this
message into a new message and forward on to as many people as
If you are the 50th, 100th, 150th, 200th, etc., person, please
also e-mail a copy back to email@example.com .
This is our chance to stop this war. Women are a strong constituency
in this country. We only have a few days. Please act immediately.
Women United Against War
As women embracing life and peace, we declare ourselves opposed to
any military action against Iraq. As women, we have been the victims
of many kinds of violence. We call on you, our Congress members, to
oppose any military action. We make this demand for ourselves, our
children, our parents, our brothers, husbands, partners and friends.
We make this demand because we understand that warfare creates endless
cycles of violence, destruction and death, impoverishing us spiritually
and economically. We make this demand because warfare destroys family
life, throwing whole communities into exile and turning children into
orphans. We make this demand because we cannot build happy lives on a
ground polluted by violence. We believe this is a defining moment in
the life of our country. We will either take our place in the family
of nations as seekers of peace and justice or we will start down a
terrible road to war, unleashing the fury of generations to come on
our land. We call upon you to act with integrity, to show courage and
remember that you are guardians of the public trust and of the world
we leave to our children. We oppose this war. We oppose all elected
officials who support this war. There is no other issue greater than
the cause of peace. No past stand or history can be called upon to
overshadow the imperative to stand today for peace. We, as women acting
to shape public life, dedicate our energy, resources, and hopes to
those who establish peace. There will be no war in our names. If you
want our support and votes, stop this war!
