Tell Congress Torture is Un-American!

ACTION PAGE: //www.usalone.com/criscenzo/pnum507.php

What is the problem with being called an "obstructionist"?!! Something as offensive as the bill rubberstamping Bush to torture in our name must be stopped. It MUST be obstructed. And our senators with any conscience left must be made to understand that this is their JOB, to filibuster if necessary!

Last month I joined a group of leading peace activists in meetings with Iraqi leaders in Amman, Jordan. One of the most disturbing things I learned about was how Iraqi detainees are being routinely tortured.

Victims of Abu Ghraib told us about the unspeakable things that were being done in our name, as Americans, to our fellow human beings. In every case these victims had not been charged with a crime and were eventually released because they were innocent!

Americans were so upset that Saddam Hussein had tortured his own people that many of them thought that invading Iraq was actually a mission of mercy! Now we find out that it is America that is torturing innocent Iraqi people and our President wants permission to continue doing it!

George Bush is bullying Congress to RETROACTIVELY remove references from the Geneva Convention to "outrages upon personal dignity . . . " These are exactly the kind of barbaric abuses I learned about while I was in Jordan! Go to //www.youtube.com/watch?v=A3eLEYSnaq4 to see my video about this meeting.

Not my America!

Americans don't support torture for ANY reason. There is a line in the sand that we will not cross -- that we CANNOT cross and still consider ourselves civilized people. Intelligence gained from torture is worthless! Torture fuels the fire of hatred that is behind terrorism. But more than that, torture is immoral. And we don't want OUR America to have any part of it.

Take Action Now! Go to //www.usalone.com/criscenzo/pnum507.php to tell Congress to uphold the Supreme Court decision that provides for fair trials and internationally recognized standards for care and treatment of people in detention.

My opponent, Darrell Issa, has good reason to look the other way on torture: His #1 contributor for this election and the last, is Titan, one of two contractors implicated in the Abu Ghraib prison torture scandal. Despite their connection with contracted torture, Titan's contract was recently renewed. Your contribution to my grassroots campaign will send a strong and clear message that torture is unacceptable.

Please go to //www.usalone.com/criscenzo/donations2.php to contribute to my campaign, because I will NEVER take money from anyone involved in human rights abuses. Period!

The one click form below will send your personal message to all your government representatives selected below, with the subject "Uphold international standards for treatment of detainees." At the same time you can send your personal comments only as a letter to the editor of your nearest local daily newspaper if you like.

This alert is brought to you through the activism of Jeeni Criscenzo, running for the U.S. House in the 49th Congressional district, and one of the leading progressive voices in the state of California.

When a brave candidate steps forward in such a district as CA 49th, shall we do anything to show them our support? If so, please also consider making a donation to Jeeni's campaign so she can spread the call to action message on impeachment, starting to bring our troops home from Iraq, and on so many other issues.

DONATIONS: //www.usalone.com/criscenzo/donations2.php

Please take action NOW, so we can win all victories that are supposed to be ours, and forward this message to everyone else you know.
