    Anti-War Groups present Congressman Loebsack with Dubious

    IOWA CITY - Yesterday, Thursday, March 29, 2007, at 4:30 p.m., five members of national
    and local anti-war initiatives delivered a "Deed of Ownership" inscribed with Congressman
    David Loebsack's name to his Iowa City office. The was certificate in response to
    Loebsack's vote supporting the Supplemental Spending Bill passed last week in the U.S.
    House of Representatives.  

    A copy of the Certificate can be viewed here.

    All the nonpartisan national antiwar organizations and thousands of state and local groups
    urged a "No" vote on this legislation.  Antiwar groups wanted Congress, instead to craft
    and pass a bill calling for immediate withdrawal of the troops with only funding sufficient for
    their safe return.

    Members of Congress (all Democrats) who voted against the bill because it did not go far
    enough are Kucinich (OH), Lee (CA), Lewis (GA), Michaud (ME), McNulty (NV), Waters
    (CA) and Woolsey (CA).

    The certificate states

    The War in Iraq
    In dubious recognition of your vote to continue funding The War in Iraq,
    We, the undersigned, do bestow upon
    U.S. Congressman, David Loebsack
    On this date, Thursday, March 29, 2007."

    The certificate is endorsed by and includes the logos of national organizations, Military
    Families Speak Out, Iraq Veterans against the War, and Veterans for Peace as well as the
    Iowa Antiwar Coalition.  This presentation is in concert with presentations of the certificate
    throughout the country to members of congress who voted for the bill.

    This presentationwasalso one of several scheduled actions to end the war including
    "Walk Out on War," a state-wide workers/student strike day scheduled May 1.
