The anti-war group MoveOn sent a petition to congressman Baron Hill, urging the 9th district representative to do everything in his power to prevent war with Iran. Group member Charlotte Zietlow read the text of the petition directly to Hill’s local staffers.
MoveOn member and European-born immigrant Helga Keller told the Hill staffers that she became an American citizen because she thought of America as the best democracy in the world. She said that notion has been disrupted in recent years, and she compared the Bush administration to Nazi Germany.
The members of Hill’s staff thanked MoveOn members for their input, and promised to relay the petition to the congressman.
