PDA Announces Support of Congressman Kucinich's H.Con.Res 450
 

WASHINGTON - July 20 - Congressman Dennis Kucinich, D-Ohio, will introduce a resolution Wednesday that calls on President Bush to appeal to all sides for a cessation of hostilities in the Israeli-Lebanon conflict and to commit the United States to multi-party negotiations. The resolution already has 20 co-sponsors.

Progressive Democrats of America is supporting the Kucinich effort and asking PDA members to write their representatives urging their support for the measure. See link: http://capwiz.com/pdamerica/issues/alert/?alertid=8919726&type=CO

PDA Executive Director Tim Carpenter says "PDA agrees with Congressman Kucinich that the United States can provide the necessary leadership to bring Middle Eastern nations together to reach a peaceful solution. We must do everything within our power to bring an end to the violence. It is unacceptable to stand and watch as the violence escalates."
