Corvallis Peace March draws 1000+

Corvallis Peace March walked from OSU campus to downtown Corvallis to join the daily vigil held by the local peace group, Alternatives to War (it's been held from the day when the US dropped the first bomb on Afghanistan on October 17, 2001) at the Courthouse. Nancy Rosenberger, OSU Anthology professor and a member of Faculty for Peace and Justice and Rep. Peter DeFazio made a speech to more than 1000 marchers. This march was sponsored by Wrench, Alternatives to War, and Faculty for Peace and Justice. (article 1)

I was with the oregon state KBVR TV crew (when we get audio/video links online I can post 'em) & we heard someone passing by who had counted with others say "1,003!". Later we learned there were 100 people downtown at the benton county Courthouse before the lead of the march got there. Positive vibes & peace!

Yay Corvallis! 16.Feb.2003 12:43

rad effectively shrill voice

Thank you to all who came out to protest war in the driving rain. The weather can't stop the power of the people. How about the irony of the ROTC folks trying to counter our shouts of peace? How about those cheerleaders? Anyone have pics of them? Unfortunate the chanting was not picked up by most marchers...would've been nice to hear a collective, majority response. Keep up the momentum for March 5!

Awsome solidarity 16.Feb.2003 16:03

Holy Crike Corvallis, that was awsome. I would like to thank ALL the people who came out for this VERY RAINY rally and march. All kudos goes to the people who showed up. Thanks also to the folks who spread the word. It really was an act of willing solidarity that every person who came was just waiting to voice. The will to come was allready there in over 1000 people. Thats great. Also, I would like to say I thought the marchers did an awsome job with chants, most just needed a sympathetic voice to chime in with. That was a very positive way to say 'NO' to WAR, corvallis.
