Dear Mr. Bush,

What is your position on:

a) Depleted uranium ammunition, sold to 24 countries during the Clinton-Gore watch, first used in conflict by your father in Iraq (see;

b) HR-2545, the "Nuclear Disarmament and Economic Conversion Act"? Solar panels and windmills, instead of missiles and bombers? (Your father walked by our signs outside the White House in March 1992 and said, on CNN, "We know you're here, we see you, we share your views on nuclear weapons." We can provide you with the video clip, if you wish.)

c) Erosion of Freedom? The closure of Pennsylvania Avenue during the Clinton-Gore watch, and the increasing closures of Lafayette (Peace) Park for the flimsiest excuses, driving the 24-hour-per-day antinuclear vigilers away, illustrate the fear-driven policies of this White House. Would you reopen Pennsylvania Avenue, and increase tolerance for voices of dissent or poverty? Will you reverse the ever-encroaching police state?
