City of Olympia Bring Them Home Resolution

The City Council of Olympia Washington recently passed a historic resolution that calls on the President and Congress of the U.S.A. to immediately commence plans to end the occupation and bring all U.S. troops safely home from Iraq.

The resolution will be forwarded not only to Washington State's National Congressional delegation, but to the entire US congress, all 535 members. A nice touch, in my opinion.

Here is a link to a PDF of the draft resolution that was voted on (with a friendly amendment) and passed unanimously by the seven-person council this past Tuesday, Feb 6th, 2007: Full Text (minus friendly amendment.)
