Anti War Activists Turn Over Petition to Congress

In an effort to express war concerns, about a dozen Lubbockites, representing the Internet Activist Organization Move On, gathered in Congressman Larry Combest's office Tuesday afternoon to present a petition protesting a war with Iraq.

Combest wasn't in, so the group spoke to a representative in his office. They delivered their petition signed by about 200 citizens from this area, expressing their desire to let the inspectors do their job and make war the last option.

"The main concern is that we not rush to war, that a preemptive strike has many implications we want to urge President Bush and the Congress to let the inspectors do their work," said Lane Powell, local Move On Coordinator.

People across the nation representing Move On protested to their leaders on Tuesday, all with the same goal to not rush into war.
