Tell Senator Murray: We Want Troops Home NOW! sign now

We are asking Washington State Senator Patty Murray to meet with us to discuss an exit strategy for Iraq that reflects the opinion of her constituents and respects the rights of Iraqis to reclaim their country from occupation. We tell Senator Murray: call for the immediate withdrawal of all U.S. Armed Forces from Iraq!

Dear Senator Murray,

According to a recent poll, 43\% of Americans want U. S. troops home now. We are among them. Not one Republican or Democrat in Congress has written or supported legislation to reflect this opinion. You are not listening to us. We are asking those 43\% to demand accurate representation on this issue. We are asking you to call for the immediate withdrawal of troops from Iraq. We wish to discuss specifically with you the urgency to act now and the growing frustration at your lack of representative leadership on this issue.
Therefore, we propose to meet with you when you will be back in Seattle. This is an opportunity for you to address your constituents and the media in a public forum. In the meantime, we would appreciate answers to the following questions.

1. Will you join StandUp!Seattle* on the International Day of Protest to end the war and occupation in Iraq on September 24, 2005?
2. Will you investigate contracting abuses found by DoD auditors regarding the reconstruction of Iraq?
3. Will you investigate the $9 billion dollars unaccounted for in the Coalition Provisional Authority budget in Iraq?
4. How will you hold President Bush accountable to Congress?
5. Have you protested to President Bush and Secretary Rumsfeld that they do not officially disclose the injuries to our troops there, diseases and severe mental trauma when they do not occur in combat situations - even if they are evacuated from Iraq?
If yes, send us a copy of your letter. If not, why not?
6. Finally, would you propose a very selective service draft just for the children of members of Congress? The purpose of this request is that such a draft will focus the responsible attention on members of Congress in terms of realistic risks and consequences from the initiation of military hostilities.

If we do not hear favorably from you within a week of your receipt of this email we will present fifty signatures and renew the request.
If one week later we do not hear from you, we will present some of us at your local office so you and your staff can meet your constituents.
If a week later we do not hear from you, we will peacefully and diligently street march in front of your local office to secure your attention.
You have often said how much you want to hear from your constituents - well, here we are. This is an effort to indicate to you the serious urgency felt by a majority of Americans to end the occupation of Iraq and bring U.S. troops home now.
