Stop US weapons sale to Saudis + Stop Nuclear Waste Shipments!

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

The struggle continues! Make your demands known to your representatives in Congress and the Senate regarding huge arms sales to Saudi Arabia! Join the protest against Highly Radioactive Nuclear Waste Shipments! That and more, right here.

Many Thanks, Peace, Solidarity, and yes, Love.


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:
