Pittsburgh City Council Passes Anti-War Resolution
03/04/2003
In a unanimous decision on March 4, the Pittsburgh City Council passed a resolution urging President Bush to seek alternatives to war, placing it among at least 125 cities to pass anti-war resolutions world wide.

The resolution was sponsored by Councilman Bill Peduto (District 8) and was supported by over 1400 signatures of Pittsburgh residents. Heavy lobbying on behalf of the bill was spearheaded by the Thomas Merton Center's Anti-War Committee and the Rosenberg Institute for Peace and Justice.

The Borough of Wilkinsburg passed their own anti-war resolution just over a week ago, and the Carnegie Mellon Student Senate is also considering passing an anti-war resolution.
