20,000+ letters sent to Bush & Congress to say:
No asylum for Luis Posada Carriles
Extradite him to Venezuela
You can help keep the pressure up!
The incredible response to A.N.S.W.E.R.'s campaign to extradite anti-Cuban terrorist Luis Posada Carriles has led to people sending more than 20,000 emails and letters to Bush and members of Congress. Weeks of letter writing, press conferences and rallies has successfully drawn attention to the obvious hypocrisy of the Bush administration's so-called "War on Terrorism."
This campaign is making a big impact. Yesterday (May 9), the New York Times ran a major front-page story on the case. A link to the article can be found below. Today, there was a follow-up editorial.
Let's keep up the pressure - right now - as it is making a big difference. Please send a letter or another letter and forward this appeal to a friend or family member and urge them to act now. It is easy for you and your friends to join this campaign. A.N.S.W.E.R. has set up an easy-to-use mechanism to facilitate sending a quick email to George W. Bush and the Congressional Representative in your District and Senators in your state with your demands. We have provided a sample letter, but you can customize your message to get your point across. Just click here to get started sending your letter! For background on the case, click here.
The A.N.S.W.E.R. Coalition can continue this and all the other campaigns because of the generous contributions and donations of people who want this movement to grow.
Your Help Makes the Difference
It is the tireless work of volunteers that allows us to simultaneously support Cuba's right to be free from U.S.-sponsored terrorism, oppose the occupation of Iraq, support the Haitian people's fight for democracy, defend Social Security and oppose the Bush budget cuts, while striking back in support of the Bill of Rights and the First Amendment as the government tries to eviscerate those cherished freedoms.
Hard work from hundreds of dedicated activists throughout the country is only part of the equation. Every person of conscience needs to support this work by a making a contribution. We use the principle of the equality of sacrifice. A donation of $10 for low income people could be equal to a $50 contribution or a $500 contribution from someone in a more stable economic situation. The most important thing is that everyone who believes in social justice and peace participate in this great undertaking.
