    Wisconsin Green Party endorses October 27th Stop the War Now! Rally in
    Chicago

    Greens from Wisconsin and region to attend

    FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE October 22nd, 2007

    Chicago Rally Participant Contacts:
    Ruth Weill Co-Chair, Wisconsin Green Party, ruthweill@gmail.com 414-350-2107
    Jill Bussiere, Media Committee, Wisconsin Green Party, jdt@itol.com 920
    255-2175

    The Wisconsin Green Party joins over 120 groups and coalitions in endorsing
    the October 27th Stop the War Now! rally in Chicago. The Chicago rally is
    one of eleven regional demonstrations centered in these major cities
    throughout the United States: Boston, Chicago, Jonesborough, Tenn., Los
    Angeles, New Orleans, New York City, Orlando, Philadelphia, Salt Lake City,
    San Francisco, Seattle.

    The Wisconsin Green Party, which opposed the war in Iraq since before the
    invasion, has repeatedly called for the immediate withdrawal of US troops
    from Iraq.

    The coalition of groups endorsing the October 27th rally in Chicago calls
    for the United States to:
    · Fund human needs, not the war
    · Stop the violence at home and abroad, no wider wars
    · Defend our civil liberties & immigrant rights
    · Bring all our troops home NOW

    Wisconsin Greens will be joining other Wisconsinites on over 20 buses
    scheduled to carry participants to Chicago on October 27th. Greens from
    Wisconsin and Illinois will meet up at the rally.

    “We were misled into this mess in the wake of 9/11 by an inept
    Administration that has no sense of public responsibility. Iraq had no
    weapons of mass destruction and nothing to do with 9/11,” said Merritt
    Bussiere, who will be representing the Kewaunee/Door WGP chapter in Chicago.
    “Al Queda, which had zero presence in Iraq in 2003, has used the US
    occupation as a major program for recruiting terrorists there. Since the
    Fall 2006 elections, Congress has just started to hold this Administration
    more accountable, but we’re still waiting for real leadership and action
    from our representatives to end the war. The best way to support our brave
    men and women serving in Iraq is to get them out of this civil war and bring
    them home.”

    “Not one more death – not anyone’s children, not anyone’s grandchildren,”
    said Debbie Ruddock, representative of the Wisconsin Green Party Women’s
    Caucus, who will be making the trip to Chicago.

    Buses are available from Green Bay, Manitowoc, Sheboygan, Milwaukee, Racine,
    Madison, Oshkosh, Wausau, Prairie du Chien, Dodgeville, and more.
