L.A. City Council to consider resolution opposing Iraq war

“Following Chicago, Detroit and dozens of other cities across the country, a coalition of six Los Angeles City Council members introduced a measure Friday urging their colleagues to officially oppose a war against Iraq.

Councilman Eric Garcetti, who worked behind the scenes for days to muster support for the antiwar proclamation, initiated the effort. Although Garcetti said that a few of his 13 colleagues questioned whether it was appropriate for the council to get involved, he found enough allies to force a vote.”
