Peace Activists Occupy Sen. Frist's Office

Urgent: call Senator Frist's office at 202-224-3344 and demand that he meet with the Iraqi women.

David Swanson just called from Senate Majority Leader Bill Frist's office to report that he and a group of women activists are occupying the office to demand a meeting with Senator Frist to end the U.S. occupation of Iraq.

The activists include three Iraqi women who testified at this morning's Out of Iraq hearing:

  • Dr. Dahlia Wasfi
  • Aseel Albanna
  • Faiva Al-araji (right)

They are joined in the protest by:

  • Cindy Sheehan
  • Ann Wright
  • Medea Benjamin
  • Gael Murphy

The Iraqi women want to meet with Frist today because they are leaving the U.S. tomorrow. They represent the 82% of Iraqis who want the U.S. out of Iraq.

Urgent: call Senator Frist's office at 202-224-3344 and demand that he meet with the Iraqi women.
