The Minnesota Peace Project has launched a petition drive calling on US Senator Amy Klobuchar to support troop withdrawal from Afghanistan.
The Minnesota Peace Project was formed last year as a way to coordinate statewide lobbying efforts against the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan and on other critical foreign policy issues. MPP has been pretty effective so far - bringing two reluctant Senators on board a bill to ban cluster munitions; and convincing Oberstar, McCollum and Ellison to sign a ground-breaking letter to Obama condemning the blockade of Gaza.
NAWC has officially endorsed the MPP. We're still looking for one or a couple people to coordinate MPP efforts in the 8th district. If you're interested in helping with this effort, please contact Joel at .
