Cities for Peace Project – A coalition is forming to request that Columbus City Council join the Cities for Peace project by passing a resolution in opposition to war on Iraq. Cities for Peace is a project of the Institute for Policy Studies in conjunction with the Education for Peace in Iraq Center (EPIC), National Priorities project, some American Friends Service Committee chapters, and other grassroots groups. So far, Columbus Campaign for Arms Control, the Progressive Peace Coalition, and CAIR, Ohio have endorsed the call for a Columbus resolution against the war on Iraq. Please let me know if you would like to add you name to the request or if know of any other organizations who would co-sponsor this endeavor. The sample resolutions and resolutions from other cities are available at the Cites for Peace website. A letter and sample resolutions will be sent to each member of Columbus City Council and Mayor Coleman early next week. After the letter is sent, we can start a call-in campaign to urge council members to introduce and support the resolution.
