More Action on Lt. Watada's Stand Against the War


If you have a minute, stand up for Lt. Watada's opposition to the Iraq War by voicing your protest against new charges filed against him on Sept. 15. Fort Lewis' Commander, Lieutenant General James Dubik, makes the final decision on whether to proceed to court-martial on any or all charges.

Below is a sample letter. Put it on your own stationery, handwritten if possible, and send priority or express for extra impact:

Commanding General Fort Lewis and I Corps
Lt. Gen. James M. Dubik
Bldg 2025 Stop 1
Fort Lewis WA 98433

Dear Lt. Gen. Dubik:

Along with tens of thousands, I support Lt. Ehren Watada's right to refuse an illegal war.

I ask that you not bring court martial proceedings against him. I write to you personally to let you know how I feel about this crucial moral issue.

If there is a court-martial, I will notify friends in the area to visit Ft. Lewis. I may (or will) also attend myself.


If you prefer to call, Lt. Gen. Dubik can be reached via his aide at 253-967-0022, and/or call the Ft. Lewis switchboard at 253-967-1110. These numbers often refer "Lt. Watada's supporters" to the Fort Lewis Public Affairs Office at 206-967-7166.

Take a moment today to phone and write Lt. Gen. James Dubik and respectfully request "no court martial for Lt. Watada." Your phone calls and letters now could make a difference. Forward this action alert to friends.

On Sept. 15, the Army escalated their case to silence Lt. Watada by adding a charge of speech crime, based on Lt. Watada's speech to a Veterans for Peace Convention on August 12. On August 17, U.S. Army First Lieutenant Ehren Watada succeeded in placing the war on trial during an Article 32 pre-trial hearing in a military courtroom at Fort Lewis. The investigating officer recommended that Lt. Watada be referred to a general court martial on all charges -- including five charges for political speech.

When writing, please consider a handwritten letter on stationary (if available) posted via express or priority mail for additional impact and timely delivery. We expect that Lt. Gen. Dubik will soon issue his decision, but there is no required timeline. Do not delay and take action today. The contact address and phone numbers for Lt. Gen. Dubik may change over the course of this action alert, so check for these and other updates.

For the first time since 1965, the military is prosecuting an objector for his opinions.
