The City Council of Santa Cruz in California has unanimously voted against the Bush administration plans to invade Iraq. It is believed to be the first such vote in the country. The resolution accused the administration of "waging a propaganda campaign to justify an invasion without reaching an international consensus in support of U.S. military action."

Across the country opponents to Iraq war have been visiting the offices of their elected officials demanding to have public meetings on the war. We’ll talk to an activist from the Boston area who visited Senator Kennedy and Kerry’s offices earlier this week.


  • Tim Fitzmaurice, City Councilor from Santa Cruz.
  • Pat McSweeney, retired English teacher in Taunton, Massachusetts. She is active in Pax Christi.
