Welcome Home Dianne...
Now Bring the Troops Home Fast! 
Lyon & Vallejo Streets 
San Francisco, CA 
Join CODEPINK in a house warming party for Senator Diane Feinstein. Meet outside of Lyon & Vallejo Streets as we encourage her to bring the troops home fast. 
Senator Diane Feinstein recently voted against John Kerry’s amendment calling for the troops to come home. Let’s make sure she doesn’t disappoint her constituents again. Gather with us, as we encourage her to co-sponsor the Harkin bill (S. CON. RES 93) - no permanent military presence or military bases in Iraq; no attempt to control the flow of Iraqi oil; and Armed Forces should be redeployed from Iraq as soon as practicable after the completion of Iraq's constitution-making process or December 31, 2006.
