US Veterans Against The WarBy Michael Atkinson Special to Salem-News.com
Action Alert: Tell WI National Guard to stand with public employees.
(MILWAUKIE, Wisc. ) - Iraq Veterans Against the War (www.ivaw.org) talked to the crowd in the occupied State Capitol in Madison, Wisconsin, expressing solidarity with students and workers fighting to protect public-sector unions.
Please help inform other people of the brave men and women who really deserve the uniforms they wear for the United States military.
The Iraq Veterans Against the War organization, which as a veteran I also support, are outstanding Americans against a bunch of this unnecessary fraud being discovered - not just the “war on terror” scamming of [all] nations involved.
Tell the Wisconsin National Guard to stand with public employees.
Call or send an email urging Brigadier General Donald P. Dunbar of the Wisconsin National Guard to stand with public workers, not against them.
As the struggle to preserve the existence of unions continues in Wisconsin, it is unclear how things will play out. But Gov. Scott Walker has stated that he is prepared to activate the Wisconsin National Guard to respond to any problems that may arise. We know that National Guard troops have been used in the past against striking workers, protesting students, and to quell urban rebellions in the U.S., at times with horrifying results (think Kent State, 1970).

But service members have the power to side with the people
Respectfully ask that General Dunbar not activate the Wisconsin National Guard against peaceful Wisconsin workers. Ask General Dunbar to go on the record publicly and say that the National Guard will not be used against those peacefully demonstrating for their collective bargaining rights.
If you are making the phone call, let us know how it went by sending us an email to ivaw.org/contact.
Here are some talking points:
Make the call or email today.
