Subject: BHA: Honoring Representative Barbara Lee -- the Lone Voice of

September 15, 2001

The Honorable Barbara Lee
U.S. House of Representatives
426 Cannon House Office Building
Washington, DC 20515

Dear Representative Lee:

The Student International Forum, the Columbus Campaign for Arms 
Control, the Progressive Peace Coalition, and the OSU Committee for 
Justice in Palestine in Columbus, Ohio wish to thank you for your 
courage to stand up firmly against the resolution to authorize U.S. 
military action to respond to the attacks on the Pentagon and the 
World Trade Center, as you also rightly opposed the use of American 
troops in Serbia in 1998.  We, too, are "convinced that military 
action will not prevent further acts of international terrorism 
against the United States," as you put it in your eloquent plea 
against war.  You will be remembered and honored as the lone voice of 
conscience in U.S. Congress.  History will prove the truth of your 

Let us work together to end the war as soon as possible.
