Rice for Peace

Another antiwar action rapidly gaining supporters is the Rice for Peace program. In the 1950s, thousands of people apparently sent small bags of rice to President Eisenhower to encourage him to send food to China, then our enemy, during a famine.

Join a nationwide effort to send a similiar symbolic message of peace and positive global citizenship to President Bush by having a half cup of uncooked rice with the message "Rice for Peace--No War On Iraq" delivered to the White House.
