Progressive Activists To Deliver Letter Of Resistance At White House

Given that it’s a congressional election year, most journalists are sticking to the old political formula of Democrats versus Republicans. In three weeks, however, a message from another political direction will be delivered to the White House.

On September 23, activists from the National Campaign for Nonviolent Resistance will deliver a letter to the White House with the following core demands:

“1. End all drone warfare. It is illegal and immoral.
2. Establish a living wage for all workers.
3. Initiate and work for an international treaty for swift verifiable action to reverse climate change. Listen to the scientific community and not the fossil fuel industry.”

The letter also states, “When you were elected president, people had such hope for a change. Yet what we got was a government that continued the policies of the Bush administration. You are NOT the people‚Äôs president, and the voices of the people are not being heard. We demand that you change course…”

That’s not a message that you’ll hear from congressional candidates of either the Democratic Party or the Republican Party this year.
