CONCORD, N.H. (AP) – Anti-war activists are knocking on doors in New Hampshire this weekend.

They are taking part in a national campaign called Million Doors for Peace. The goal is to identify and organize Americans who are against the war.

Anne Miller of New Hampshire Peace Action says they want the next president to quickly and carefully end the war in Iraq.

Volunteers are asking residents to sign a petition in support of withdrawing all troops and military contractors within a year, creating a “diplomatic surge” to engage Iraq’s neighbors and other countries, leading efforts for Iraqi-controlled reconstruction and humanitarian aid and helping establish international peacekeeping and stabilization forces if requested by the Iraqi people.

The program also involves environmental and health care activists.
