CIA HANDS OFF BOLIVIA and VENEZUELA !!

Where will it be? 

The Military-Industrial Complex is salivating for its next meal.  

Will it be against North Korea?  Iran?  Venezuela? Bolivia?

Will it continue in Syria? Yemen? 

Someone might sink a U.S. warship in the Persian Gulf, killing hundreds of sailers, and blame it on Iran to start a war.

CALL CONGRESS OFTEN:

 

Congressional Switchboard at 202-224-3121on on Militarization of the Po

Demilitarize Police Bill

The legislation (S.2252)  by Sens.Schatz, Murkowski, Harris and Paul is slated for a vote the week of July 20 in the Senate.

 

This bill has bipartisan support.  Sen. Chris Van Hollen is among the 15 co-sponsors.  We need to get Sen. Ben Cardin on board as well.  

On the House side, companion legislation #622 by Rep. Johnson might get a vote.  Current co-sponsors include Rep. Anthony Brown.  We need to get the other members of the Maryland delegation to the U.S. House to join Rep. Brown in co-sponsoring this legislation.

 

Please take the following actions:

 

Call Sen. Cardin and ask him to join Sen. Van Hollen in supporting Schatz-Murkowski-Harris-Paul 1033 program reform -  S.2252.  Call your U.S. House representative and ask him to join Rep. Brown in supporting Rep. Johnson’s #622.  The Congressional switchboard is 202-224-3121.

 

We have a shot at winning on this issue.
