NOW is the time to STOP the war;
NOW is the time to bring them home!

Some 2,000 Americans have died so far in Iraq.
Another 20,000 Americans suffer from serious injuries.
An estimated100,000 Iraqi citizens have been killed.
More than 100,000 Iraqis have also suffered brutal injuries.

Candlelight Vigil for Peace

Saturday, Sept. 24 - 7:30 pm

Sidewalks on both sides of the Burnside, Morrison, & Hawthorne,from twilight until dark.

Anyone who has press contacts or other means of getting the word out, please help so so. Attached is a flier for handing out. Posters are available by contacting below.

Postcards calling for an end to the war will be made available at the vigil for signature, and these will be personally delivered to offices of Senators Wyden and Smith on Monday the 26th. Consider joining us on the September 26th to follow up on the vigil and lobby for an immediate end to the war.

Lobbying Effort Commendable 15.Sep.2005 12:56


A good idea to follow up the vigil, if in fact lots of people show up. Will everyone be invited to lobby the following Monday with the same message: end the war now; bring the troops home now? Who can go, where do we go, and what time?
