VotersForPeace Forum: "The Peace Voter's Dilemma"
Monday, Oct 9, 2006
"Meet and Greet" @ 5:30pm
Panel begins @ 6:00pm
Busboys & Poets, Langston Room
14 & V St. NW
Join anti-war commentators across the political spectrum in a dialogue about how the occupation of Iraq is changing our political landscape and challenging the emerging bloc of peace voters. How are political parties responding to the new "peace voter"? If a majority of Americans are now against the US occupation of Iraq, why are most leading candidates so tepid about taking an anti-war stance? What is a peace voter to do? What does the peace voter dilemma tell us about the state of our democracy? What can be done to restore accountability and responsiveness to our political system?
