On Feb. 18, seven members of the Los Angeles City Council voted "yes" today after Eric Garcetti eloquently introduced the No War In Iraq resolution which was seconded by Ruth Galanter. The only problem at City Council today was IT NEEDED 8 VOTES TO PASS! The seven voting "yes"---Cindy Miscikowski, Ed Reyes, Nate Holden, Janice Hahn, Ruth Galanter, Tom LaBonge and Eric Garcetti------needed an eighth vote. Please join us City Council again on Friday, Feb. 21 10:00 a.m. City Hall Chambers for what could be a historic day if we get the votes!
CALL & E-MAIL LA CITY COUNCIL MEMBERS TO SUPPORT ANTI-WAR RESOLUTION THIS FRIDAY
On Feb. 18, seven members of the Los Angeles City Council voted "yes" today after Eric Garcetti eloquently introduced the No War In Iraq resolution which was seconded by Ruth Galanter. Seven strong statements were made on behalf of the innocent civilian populations of Iraq and against a preemptive, first-strike policy by the U.S. The only problem at City Council today was IT NEEDED 8 VOTES TO PASS!
The seven voting "yes"---Cindy Miscikowski, Ed Reyes, Nate Holden, Janice Hahn, Ruth Galanter, Tom LaBonge and Eric Garcetti------needed an eighth vote.
Nick Pacheco who is expected to vote yes was absent.
Cindy Miscikowski, in a admirable procedural step, cited the lack of a decisive vote--- 7 to 5 --- and moved that a final vote take place Friday. That proposal was accepted.
On Tuesday, Councilmember Jan Perry announced that she supported all of the concepts included in the Garcetti resolution, but that she would vote against it. Hopefully a few more days of thinking about it, will change her mind.
Call those who Voted "No" Hal Bernson, Jan Perry, Wendy Greuel, Jack Weiss and Dennis Zine. Council President Alex Padilla does not support the Garcetti resolution.
Neighbors For Peace & Justice, actors Ed Asner and David Clennon, the religious, labor and academic leaders who spoke so effectively and the hundreds, from virtually every movement, who showed up to keep their feet.
Please join us City Council again on Friday, Feb. 21 10:00 a.m. City Hall Chambers for what could be a historic day!
100 U.S. cities and counties have passed resolutions opposing the war, along with both houses of the Maine state legislature and the Hawaii House of Representatives. (Go to http://citiesforpeace.org for full list.)
California cities and Counties that have passed resolutions include: Arcata, Berkeley, Davis, Fairfax, Mendocino, County, Oakland, Palo Alto, San Fernando, San Francisco, San Luis Obispo, Santa Barbara, Santa Clara County, Santa Cruz, Santa Monica, Sebastopol. Topanga Canyon and West Hollywood.
(So far Chicago is the biggest city nationally that has signed on, if LA signs we will top the list as the largest city.)
You can reach Nick Pacheco at 213-485-3335 and Jan Perry at 213-485-3351.
Also please call and e-mail your city council representative to either congratulate them or encourage them to vote yes the next time.
