The “100,000 for 2004” campaign, launched in Berlin earlier this month, was expanded to cover the entire organization. Under this project we will seek out American voters abroad, ensure that they are registered to vote and ask them to sign a pledge declaring that they will vote only for candidates who oppose the doctrine of preemptive war and the USA Patriot act, which has so drastically dismantled American civil liberties.
