FW: Get on the bus for Sept. 24! Online bus tickets available



The tide is turning!
Get your bus ticket online!

Dear A.N.S.W.E.R. friend,


The courageous vigil of Cindy Sheehan and her supporters in Crawford, Texas has thrust Bush onto the defensive. As millions of people have been inspired by Cindy Sheehan's stance, Bush took to the airwaves on Saturday to proclaim, "We must finish the task that our troops have given their lives for." As his approval rating for his handling of Iraq fell to an all-time low - under 38 percent - Bush proclaimed, "We can be confident in the ultimate triumph of our cause." 

Bush is sounding more and more like Lyndon Johnson in 1967-68. Fewer and fewer people believe him. In fact, a light will appear at the end of this tunnel only when the people of the United States force the government to withdraw all U.S. and foreign forces from Iraq.

Cindy Sheehan has focused the eyes of the world on Crawford, Texas in the month of August. In the month of September, the eyes of the world will focus on Washington DC, San Francisco, and Los Angeles, when hundreds of thousands take to the streets on September 24.

Across the U.S. activists are coordinating through the national transportation page.

Every day more and more people are making plans and filling buses to come to Washington DC on September 24. The national transportation page set up by A.N.S.W.E.R. is receiving enormous use - if you haven't made your plans yet, click here to go to the transportation page, where you can find details about buses from across the U.S.

Come join A.N.S.W.E.R. activists from around the country in what is sure to be a huge turnout. Rally and march together behind banners and signs demanding "End the War Against Iraq, Bring the Troops Home Now! End Colonial Occupation from Iraq to Palestine to Haiti and Everywhere!" We have secured permits for both the rally and march right at the steps of the White House!

It is very helpful to buy your ticket now, ahead of time. Each bus from New York costs between $1400 and $1700. We have to pay for the bus ahead of time. By buying your ticket now, we are able to reserve additional buses.

We need to raise $100,000 in the next three weeks. Please help make the September 24 demonstration at the steps of the White House a powerful united display of opposition to Bush's war agenda. In mounting this massive action, we are incurring significant expenses for hundreds of thousands of leaflets, posters, flyers, for national outreach actions, for buses, and for the stage and sound for the big rally. We need your help. Click here now to make a donation, where you can also find information about how to contribute by check.
