Iraqi War on Santa Cruz City Council Tonight!

Items ##20 and 21 at tonight's 7 PM City Council session at 809 Center St. concern the War in Iraq and are a follow-up to the Farr nod-along last Tuesday at the Del Mar Theater. E-mail them to toughen up, if you want to stop the war!
Tonight (Tuesday February 25th) at the 7 PM session of City Council (right after half an hour of Oral Communications, or less), the following two agenda items come up as "follow-up" from the Farr debacle of last Tuesday.
MISSING from the agenda are: an impeachment resolution, a definite scheduling of a Town Hall meeting in the Civic (promised by Reilly for March 19th) which could actually be broadcast live, any resolution seeking declaration of Santa Cruz as a sanctuary of war resistors (from the current military and from the draft,if one is created), or any support for a delegation to Iraq to serve as mediators or human shields.
You can leave a message with Reilly at 420-5022 and leave a message with City Council at 420-5020. You can e-mail City Council, while it is in session at viewpoint (at) and when it is not at citycouncil (at) Mail to both addresses to be sure.
If anyone is up for a round-the-clock vigil, give me a call at 423-4833. W
