    Friday, November 16 and the third Friday of every month (see right sidebar):
    Iraq Moratorium Day #3
    October 19, Moratorium Day #2, was a strong step forward for this project, Organized activities took place in hundreds of communities around the country. Reports on dozens of Third Friday events, many with photos, are posted on the Iraq Moratorium website at Even more important, thousands of individuals broke their daily routines and took steps by themselves to end the war, from calling Congress to wearing black ribbons or armbands, from standing in silent prayer for five minutes at noon to putting signs in their windows or on their lawns, from redirecting traffic from their web sites to the Iraq Moratorium homepage to leaving little toy army men with tags reading “Bring me home!” in stores, libraries, laundry-mats and other public spaces.
    If you haven’t yet decided what you are going to do for the Third Friday this month, you can check the listings at the top of the Iraq Moratorium website to see if there is a protest or a program near you.

    You can also click a link to look at the range of individual actions that ordinary Americans who are fed up with this war have undertaken on their own. Most of these have tips for how to carry them out and more are being added.
    Every day brings fresh evidence that we, the people of this country, must make our voices heard. Polls show 70% of the Americans know this war is a catastrophe for the people of Iraq and for the people of the US, yet the war rolls on and our elected officials do nothing to stop the death and destruction.
    It’s got to stop. We’ve got to stop it. Please take some step this Moratorium Day to end the war. Then, if you can, write a couple of sentences on what you did and post it to the reports section. The more of us who record what we do, the more ideas and inspiration we will give the thousands who visit Iraq Moratorium website for the first time every month.
