Tonight we are starting a Peace Insurrection encampment outside Congress to say NO to War on Syria until the vote goes through sometime next week. We will be spending all day and all night for the next week at Congress, and invite you to join us for this urgent cause. We will be drafting a People’s Resolution as an alternative to war, visiting our elected representatives every single day, painting and chalking and creating visuals, building a dialogue booth for folks to talk about alternatives to war, and anything YOU want to do. Bring your chairs, sleeping bags, pots and pans, art supplies, spirit and positive energy! Camp Peace Insurrection started tonight at the corner of Independence and New Jersey Ave. at 5 pm (across from Cannon Building). Stay tuned for updates!
