“While the President calls the peace movement ‘irresponsible,’ the polls show the American public hungers for a more responsible policy in Iraq. For 2006, Peace Action supports those candidates with foreign policies based on international cooperation and human rights,” stated Paul Kawika Martin, Peace Action’s Political Director.
