Salem Peace Walk-SUNDAY

Salem will hold it's PEACE Walk on Sunday. Please join us if you can.
To acknowledge the third anniversary of the war in Iraq, protesters plan to take to Salem's streets Sunday.

"There are plans under way for a massive rally in Portland to mark the anniversary," Salem organizer Jacqueline Zimmer said. "However, it is important for our fellow Salem citizens to see that many of us would prefer to be commemorating the end of the war, not another anniversary of the war."

The peace walk is set for noon to 1:30 p.m. Sunday and will begin at Salem's skate park, near the Marion Street Bridge.
