Host a War Criminal card party
Hosting a card party is a fun way to get together with friends and fellow activists outside of the picket lines, down from the trees, and away from the jail cells. Card parties are a great way to build partnership with other organizations in your area, learn about their campaigns, and enjoy the company while playing old favorites or learning new games. At your card party you can spread the word about where the next war criminal is appearing, who made the latest attempted citizens arrest, and how to pass a city ordinance to promote executive accountability. It's a good time to also rant about the cost of war in your community and ways to hold those accountable for leading into the illegal war in Iraq.
Most wanted Iraqi playing cards (Remember these)
In the 2003 invasion of Iraq by a United States-led coalition, the U.S. military developed a set of playing cards to help troops identify the most-wanted members of President Saddam Hussein's government, mostly high-ranking Baath Party members or members of the Revolutionary Command Council. The cards were officially named the "personality identification playing cards".

War Criminal Playing Cards
Message from After Downing Street:
Click below to check 'em out and order a deck or two. These are beautiful playing cards, a full deck of 52 plus a joker, information cards, and a box with directions for making a citizen's arrest inside.
You can play any card game and, at the same time, learn a little about the top 53 U.S. war criminals (and what you can do to hold them accountable). Click here: Codepink
This project originated 10 months ago when AfterDowningStreet produced a list of the top 50 U.S. war criminals. A thousand voices proposed making a deck of cards, and CODE PINK volunteered to do it.
Some changes have been made to the line-up, however, and you'll have to buy the cards to see who made the final cut. Below are links to related pages on AfterDowningStreet and
