NH Fights to Keep Peace on the Presidential Agenda

November 30, 2007

Concord, NH - It's consistently called the most critical issue in the 2008 election, but many groups are still working overtime to make sure the pursuit of peace, in Iraq and elsewhere, isn't lost in the shuffle of the housing meltdown and "wedge issues" like immigration and abortion. At New Hampshire Peace Action, they've gathered hundreds of signatures calling for an end to the war. Group director Anne Miller says this kind of support should help keep peace on the agenda.

"We are hoping with hundreds of signatures, we can get the candidates to take notice that the people of New Hampshire care about ending the war in Iraq, and they care about preventing war with Iran."

With issues like health care, energy costs, and the environment all in the mix, Miller says it's crucial to keep peace a priority for the next President.

"As we look forward to hiring our new chief executive, it's critical that we hire someone who's going to support the will of the people."

The group plans to run an advertisement featuring the signatures in statewide newspapers in the coming weeks. You can also view it online, at www.nhpeaceaction.org.
