Call Congress: Oppose the Syria War Amendment

The House of Representatives is expected to vote today on an amendment to give President Obama power to arm Syrian rebels as part of his military plan to fight ISIS.

The president has already ordered airstrikes using his supposed authority under the 9/11 and Iraq War resolutions. That means this vote may be anti-war activists’ only chance to voice their opposition to the U.S. latest misadventure in the Middle East.

Call your representatives today and tell them to vote no on the Syria amendment today.

America appears to be once again heading towards a bloody, open-ended conflict in a new country.

Most reports show this amendment will pass and the Senate already has an agreement in place to approve it as well — so lawmakers can return home for the final stretch of the midterm elections.

Activists should take this opportunity to remind those lawmakers that we’ll be considering this vote in the midterms.
