If you want to help end the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan, challenge the military industrial complex, fight for jobs not wars, or anything along those lines, SATURDAY IS YOUR DAY OF ACTION! There will be a massive peace march in DC – some say they are expecting hundreds of thousands to show up – and events all over the nation. On Sunday there will also be an event in Seattle, for those of you near there.
Please join me in DC – if you’re looking for me, I’ll be with the “We Are Not Your Soldiers” contingent (carrying a peace flag and with my brother, who will be videotaping) and for part of the day I’ll be marching with former US Senator and presidential candidate Mike Gravel.
Here are events going on, on Saturday:
Puerto Rico (this is asking people to put candles in their windows all weekend – do it wherever you live!)
To get excited, check out these vidWashington, DCeos of Cindy Sheehan’s launch of her new project, Camp OUT NOW. It is an encampment on the national mall that will remain there until our troops are out of the Middle East and veterans are getting fair treatment.
A lot of people are hoping that the antiwar movement will be reinvigorated this weekend. I’ll be doing my part to make sure that comes true. Will you?
