STATEN ISLAND, NY – Peace Action (www.peace-action.org), the nation’s largest grassroots peace organization, will hold a press conference on Saturday, May 17th at 6:00 PM in the Staten Island Museum auditorium, 75 Stuyvesant Place, to announce their endorsement of Democrat Steve Harrison, (13th Congressional District Staten Island/Southwest Brooklyn) who is running against Vito Fossella, New York’s only Republican House Member. Saturday’s press conference will be held before a meeting and potluck dinner of Peace Action of Staten Island (www.panys.org/SI) that will be held at the same location.

Steve Harrison, Cheryl Wertz, Executive Director of Peace Action New York State, David Poleshuck, new Chair of Peace Action of Staten Island, Vicki McFayden of Bay Ridge Peace Action, and a representative of national Peace Action are scheduled to speak.

To receive the endorsement, Steve Harrison answered questions from Peace Action, concerning foreign policy, nuclear weapons and national security.

“We found that Mr. Harrison would bring to Congress an intelligent and educated approach to the real security of this country based on international cooperation, respect for human rights, and diplomacy,” said Peace Action New York State Chair Sally Jones. “Among the positions taken by Mr. Harrison that garnered him the support of Peace Action is his to opposition to the Bush war policy that is destroying the American economy and driving down living standards.”

Harrison , one of the original ten signatories to the Responsible Plan to End the War in Iraq (www.responsibleplan.com), states, “The Bush administration has not articulated a rationale for the continuation of this war. The current objective is not clear and the original reasons given by the Bush administration for the war were proven false. There are no weapons of mass destruction in Iraq. Iraq was not responsible for 9/11.”
