National Call-in Day on Iran Blockade Resolutions
Wednesday, July 9 is a national call-in day for H.Con.Res 362, the
naval blockade resolution.

H.Con.Res.362 has over 220 cosponsors; is yours one?

Call your member of Congress and ask him or her not to support this act of war!

Congress is considering this bill at this very moment; now is the time
to act to oppose this plan for war. Groups from all over the country
are joining together for a national call-in day on H.Con.Res. 362.

This resolution demands that the president initiate an international
effort to impose a land, sea, and air blockade on Iran to stop
shipments of gasoline, and to subject all cargo entering or leaving
Iran to stringent inspection requirements.

Call your representative and ask him or her to oppose the blockade resolution!

Imposing a blockade without United Nations authorization (which the
resolution does not call for) would be considered an act of war.
Though a vote on this bill has been successfully delayed so far, some
Congressional sources say the House could vote on it as early as next
week. They need to hear from you before the vote.

Adoption of this resolution would pave the way for war and bypass
diplomacy. The immediate effect would be a further increase in oil
prices - with gas prices in the US inching closer to $7/gallon and
beyond.

Tell your member of Congress to oppose H CON RES 362 and join
thousands of Americans in the rising chorus of concern over this
dangerous legislation.

If your Representative is a co-sponsor: ask them to withdraw their sponsorship.

If your Representative is not a co-sponsor: thank them for not signing
on and ask them to work to stop this dangerous legislation from going
forward.

Call your representative today!
