Weekly Update – September 5, 2016

WNY Peace Center: Weekly Update September 5, 2016:
It’s Labor Day! You should have the day off, with pay!

******

Don’t miss this important action:
Wed Sept 7th: National Call In Day to support the upcoming Murphy/Paul joint resolution to block $1.15 billion in weapons for Saudi Arabia! See below.

And get ready for the Peace Justice and Nonviolence Festival and Walk on September 11!

*****
Protest to Stop U.S. Weapon Sales to Saudi Arabia!

Wednesday, Sept 7th: National Call In Day to support the upcoming Murphy/Paul joint resolution to block $1.15 billion in weapons for Saudi Arabia!

Saudi Arabia is ruled by a ruthless feudal monarchy that will turn those weapons against its neighbors (as in Bahrain), use them in its illegal war in Yemen, and will no doubt turn them on its own people if they challenge the absolute dictatorship of the Saudi ruling family. By providing these weapons, the U.S. enables Saudi war crimes and human rights abuses.
     All are welcome to use Friends Committee on National Legislation’s (FCNL) toll free number.
Tell Senate: “No more arms sales to Saudi Arabia!”
Call FCNL toll free number:
1-855-68 NO WAR
(1-855-686-6927)
Using this number will allow us to track the number of calls coming in to the Senate, broken day by state, and to report those numbers to Hill staff.
Calling this number will direct folks to the Capitol Switchboard, where they can ask the operator to direct them to each of their senators’ offices.
