Help stop the U.S. sale of $110 Billion arms to Saudi Arabia!
This arms deal is the largest arms deal in U.S. history, and it’s being offered to a country that’s been indiscriminately bombing Yemen with U.S. support for over two years, killing thousands of civilians in the process.
Thankfully, Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY) is planning to introduce a bill anytime now to block a key component of the arms deal; the portion containing munitions being used against civilians in Yemen. Thanks to the Arms Export Control Act, Paul can actually force a vote in the Senate, making this a crucial time for your Senators to hear from you. You can write to your representatives at the following address:

PLACE CHANGE: Health Care Die-In tomorrow @Walden Pond Park

Dear Friends 50th Year 716-332-3904 716-931-3520

This Thursday’s die-in HAS BEEN MOVED TO WALDEN POND PARK (WALDEN AVE & RANSON RD, LANCASTER, NY 14086) rather than Congressman Chris Collins’ office. It’s still at 4:30-5:30pm tomorrow/Thurs, 5/11. Chris Collins and others who voted for the AHCA took coverage away from the most vulnerable to pay for tax breaks for the rich.

Thanks for the great turnout and spirit at the Immigrants Solidarity March/Rally last Saturday! While we’ll finally have a breather on National Days of Action, there’s still plenty to do every day. See events and campaigns below, and on our website (wnypeace.org) and Facebook page.

We’re hoping too that you’ve put our 50th Annual Membership Meeting and Pot/Snack-Luck, 2pm on Saturday, May 20, at the WNYPC/NRC, 1272 Delaware (entrance & pkg round back), on your calendar. Assessing, planning, and connecting is vital to our struggle and progress. And let’s pace ourselves!

Many Thanks, Peace, Solidarity, and yes Love. Cresley, Kate, Peggy, Vicki, and All
