Petition for: inspections, not war : LUSENET : Beyond the Sidewalks : One Thread

Dear MoveOn member,

The response to our emergency petition to the U.N. Security Council has been nothing short of extraordinary. Less than two days after the petition was launched, over 550,000 people have signed, from over 200 countries. It's a strong message from the peoples of the world that the Security Council should support tough inspections in Iraq, not war. It's also the fastest-growing online petition we've ever seen -- and already one of the largest in history.

Thanks for being a part of this enormous success. With your help, we can make it even bigger. Please let your friends and colleagues know about the petition by sending them a short note and this email. They can sign up at:


We've pushed back our delivery date to Monday -- our sources at the U.N. tell us that's when it'll make the most waves. We need to send the petition to press on Friday night, but we'd like to have as many signers as possible by that time. If each person who signed the petition gets a few friends to sign, we'll easily reach our 750,000 goal -- but it has to happen today.

Please take a moment to let your friends know about this important initiative. With your help, we can make an even bigger impact on the U.N. Security Council.

Sincerely, --Carrie, Eli, Joan, Peter, Wes, and Zack The MoveOn Team March 6th, 2003

P.S. Our petition was launched in cooperation with the American Friends Service Committee, who have a terrific website that provides resources and information on the crisis in Iraq. Check it out at:
