You can also register yourself as an endorser of the protest. You can imagine the catastrophic consequences of going to war in the Middle East at this juncture. Stand up and have your voice heard. You can find a list of cities where protests will take place on the Answer Coalition website as well as on the CODEPINK website (use their link to contact your congressperson to ask them to prevent this war), and the World Beyond War Events Map at The Action Network.
