Memorial Day - Join Code Pink Memorial Ribbon Walk

WHAT: Code Pink Memorial Ribbon Walk -- Remember, Mourn, Resist
WHEN: Monday, May 31st, 2:00 pm
WHERE: Gather at Waterfront Park, at the Salmon Street fountain
WHO: Code Pink and anyone interested in acknowledging those killed in the Iraq invasion
Remember, mourn, resist
Remember, mourn, resist
Help us carry our 50 foot pink ribbon that lists the names of 802 US troops killed in Iraq (March 2003 to present); we will also have representations of Iraqi civilians and military killed in the invasion/occupation. We plan to march through Waterfront Park with the ribbon; at the end point (yet to be determined) we will read the names as we pull them off the ribbon.

This is NOT a protest; this will be a solemn event. We plan to wear primarily black with pink accents. All are welcome to join us.
