West HOllywood passes Anti-War Resolution

Anti-War Resolution Passes West Hollywood City Council



The West Hollywood City Council approved Resolution 2U which opposes a war, and military action, in Iraq. The resolution was approved by all 4 city council members and faced hardly any opposition. Anti-War organizations, including A.N.S.W.E.R., Not In Our Name, and The Coalition for World Peace, all voiced their adament support for the Resolution. At the initial start of the meeting, a somewhat heavy media prescence was visible, including Channel 4(NBC), Channel 5 (CBS), and KCAL 9 news. What seemed to be a promising chance at media coverage, however, all but dissipated. After two hours passed, in which another resolution decrying and discussing the banning of the inhumane procedure of declawing cats, much of the media dispersed and so did the crowd. The only visible media who remained after the much discussed ban on declawing were volunteer youth documenting the resolution and the local public access channel. There were ten appellants who voiced support for the Resolution, including a man who commented “This resolution supports the declawing of George W. Bush.” Resolution 2U is the first Anti-War Resolution to pass a city council in Southern California. As such, many council members hoped that the City of West Hollywood would influence other councils within the area, including Los Angeles, Santa Monica, Beverly Hills, and Culver City. Petitions have been circulating within the city of Los Angeles to put forward an Anti-War Resolution to the city council, and the momentum seems to be growing. To date fifteen cities have passed a resolution against a war on Iraq, including Seattle, Chicago, Philadelphia, San Francisco, Oakland, Washington DC, Albaquerque, Des Moines, and Detroit. Although Russia is claiming that the U.S. will go to war in Iraq by a month, these resolutions clearly state the disapprovel of the American public towards any military action.
