This March 19 will mark the 7th anniversary of the U.S. invasion of Iraq. During these past seven years hundreds of thousands of Iraqis and thousands of Americans have needlessly lost their lives – and millions more have had their lives disrupted by physical and psychological injuries, by having their homes demolished, and losing loved ones. And tragically, after the passage of all of this time, there is no real end in sight.
To show our continued opposition to this senseless war, and to remind the powers that be that the people still insist on immediate withdrawal, we are calling on all of you to join us, yet again, in taking to the streets!
On Friday, March 19, the Northland Anti-War Coalition is going to be holding three vigils/pickets at different times of the day, in different parts of Duluth. Our goal is to raise the anti-war banner high to remind that public that the war is still being waged, and show that there is still a vibrant anti-war movement for them to join. Please try to find time in your day to join us for one or more of these vigils.
Here is list of the times and locations of the three vigils:
1.) 7:30-8:30am at Central & Grand
2.) 11:30am-12:30pm at Mesaba & Central Entrance
3.) 4:30-5:30pm at Lake Ave & Superior St.
Between now and the 19th, we’re also asking that you help us in spreading the word about these vigils. Forward this article over any email lists that you are on. Post it on your facebook page, on twitter, or anywhere else you can think of. Lets cast the net as wide as we can!
We’ll have some extra signs on hand at the vigils, but feel free to make and bring your own if you like. And as always, bring as many friends, co-workers, classmates, neighbors and family members as you can. I hope to see you all on March 19!
