AFSC on YouTube-please view and pass on

We are pleased to forward this email in its entirety from the American Friends Service Committee and urge you to circulate the YouTube link to as many people as you can. It's not often that we see such a clear expression of what the war is costing real people in real terms.

American Friends Service Committee has just released a new 2 min. video to help people understand the outrageous amount of money that the U.S. spends daily on The Iraq War in comparison to the budget for human needs such as healthcare and education.

To reach the widest audience, we need your help. On YouTube, the more views a video gets, the more visibility it gets.

So we are asking all our friends and supporters to
- watch this video (at least once)
- rate it (be honest) and
- send it to your whole network of friends and family with the same message.
- post the video to your FaceBook profile

Please take a minute now - click here and watch the video:

After you view the video and send it to your friends, if you have a few more moments, please sign our petition to Congress to DEFUND the Iraq War and RE-FUND human needs at home and in Iraq:

Thanks much for your help.
