A vigil is planned for outside the Lane County Jail, where Suzanne is being held pending a possible transfer either into federal custody or back to her unit. Anyone wishing to support Suzanne and her family should hustle down to the jail and see if people are gathering. I don't know what time the vigil is set to begin. Might as well start with you.
When Sarah Rich spoke at a peace rally in Eugene in March, she had this to say (via The Register-Guard):
(Rich said) her daughter decided to desert just three days before she was due to return, after being denied the normal 18 months of decompression time between deployments and being ordered back after less than a year. ...
Rich excoriated Congress for approving the war in the first place and for allowing it to continue by approving President Bush's budget requests, and she called on the crowd not to stand by quietly while people continue to die.
"Politicians who want to honor the fallen need to show some leadership and bring our troops home now," she said. "We need to show that dissent is patriotic. Now is not the time for passivity. Now is the time to make some noise."
