URGENT: Colombia

Now that an Andean funding package has passed the House, it is time to lobby the Senate. Please call your two Senators on the phone as soon as possible and ask them to vote YES on any amendments that would ELIMINATE or REDUCE funding for Colombia's military or place a moratorium on drug war fumigation.

You can reach your two Senators by calling the Congressional Switchboard at (202) 224-3121, or look them up at http://www.senate.gov on the web. As always, please write us at [email protected] to let us know you've taken action.
