Democracy for America Miami (DFAM) and Miami Veterans for Peace have come up with a novel approach to broadcasting a message to end the occupation of Iraq: an aerial banner that reads. “Bring Our Troops Home Now”. These two groups decided to first try their idea at this year’s Super Bowl in Miami and again at the Grammy Music Awards, but inclement weather forced the event to be postponed. Now the organizers have turned their attention to this Sunday’s Oscars in Hollywood, California.

"Though Iraq is the number one issue in America, and though the vast majority of Americans want our troops home as expeditiously as possible, the Senate has decided not to even debate the occupation of Iraq," said Sam Feldman of Miami Veterans for Peace. "Therefore, we must broadcast the message over the rooftops of America until members of the Senate show some of the same courage that our young men and women, who are fighting in Iraq, show every day."
Outside the Academy Awards, Military Families Speak Out is hosting an "Oscar for Peace" anti-war vigil and awards ceremony beginning at 12 noon at the corner of Hollywood and Vine in Hollywood, California. They are presenting "Oscars" to members of the PEACE community who have shown continued support in ending the war in Iraq and bringing our troops home NOW!
