Peace & Justice Events THIS Weekend

There are a couple of important peace & justice events going on this weekend. I urge you all to try to attend, and to spread the word.

1. On Saturday at noon there will be a picket in solidarity with the suffering people of Gaza [death toll is nearing 800!]. The protest will be at the MN Power Plaza [Lake Ave. & Superior St.] in downtown Duluth. We'll have some extra signs on hand, but feel free to make and bring your own. This event is being organized by an ad hoc group of activists.

2. On Saturday evening, at 7pm, there will be a meeting talking about setting up a sister city relationship with Rania, Iraq in the basement of the UCC Peace Church [corner of 11th St. E. & 11th Ave. E.]. This event is being organized by Michelle Naar-Obed.

3. Then on Sunday, Jan. 11, the Northland Anti-War Coalition will be holding its January planning meeting. It'll be at 2pm in the library of the Unitarian-Universalist Church at 835 W. College St. We had to cancel our December meeting due to a blizzard, so this one is especially important. We'll be reviewing our December week of action, Steve Carlson from Trego will be coming up to report on the recent United for Peace & Justice convention in Chicago, we'll be talking about Gaza, and possible spring actions against the Iraq & Afghanistan wars. Bring your ideas and your friends!

I can't make it to the Gaza demonstration, but will be there in spirit and in solidarity with the people of Gaza.
