MoveOn Plans Iraq War Protest Near Senate Offices Thursday

MoveOn.org is calling on its members in the Washington D.C. area to protest the cost of the Iraq war near Senate office buildings on Thursday. It's part of the Iraq/Recession campaign that MoveOn and other liberal groups have started to try to put pressure on lawmakers to start withdrawing troops soon.

MoveOn and its partners plan to unveil polling on Thursday that supports its claim that war spending has hurt the economy. But others, including the former chairman of the Economic Council of Advisers under President Bill Clinton, have been more skeptical of the war's economic impact.

Here's a snippet of MoveOn's invite:
Dear MoveOn Member,

On Thursday, we're making major news at events in Washington and around the country. We're unveiling a new poll showing that local voters want to stop wasting billions in Iraq, and want to help the economy by investing those resources here at home.

In Washington, we can make an even bigger splash if there's a crowd at the press conference
