Another chance Friday to speak up against the war

(10:30PM EST – promoted by Nightprowlkitty)

They’ll be flipping pancakes for peace Friday at the Midwest Renewable Energy Expo in Wisconsin.

They’ll hold a teach-in on torture on the train to San Jose, where a picket and vigil will target a Boeing subsidiary accused of providing logistics for those “extraordinary rendition” flights.

Church bells will ring in Massachusetts. Activists will leaflet commuters in San Francisco Bay area, Brooklyn, and Takoma Park MD. Street corner vigils are planned in dozens of communities across the country, large and small.

It’s all part of the Iraq Moratorium , a monthly event that asks people to break their daily routines and do something to show that they want to Iraq war and occupation to end.

Nearly 100 events in 82 communities are listed on the Moratorium website, bringing the total to more than 1000 since the Moratorium began last September.

The Iraq Moratorium does not believe that one size fits all.  It asks people to act, but in whatever way they choose.

The whole idea is to do something — anything — to show your opposition to the war, whether it’s wearing an armband or writing your members of Congress or donating to a peace group working to end the war and occupation.  All it takes to have an action is two people and a sign.  

Friday’s the day.  Please do something.

  1. How about it? If nothing else, how about giving a buck, or 5, or 10, to your favorite peace group?

  2. …our usual lively vigil at University & Acton!!!  Lots of honking, lots of enthusiasm and noise.

    That’s basically what we – masslass, Victory Coffee and myself plus two spouses did at Faneuil Hall on May One. Very low key but like you said: “The whole idea is to do something — anything — to show your opposition“. Very cool sign – some poster work by OPOL.

    I still haven’t downloaded the pix from that day. Or uploaded them. Life’s been more than hectic and more hectic than usual. But each day has it’s own beauty and infinite possibilities. Who knows? Maybe Darth Cheney’s implant will go haywire. With Karl already back in Texas that would leave Bush speechless. 😉
