Planning to rally

We hear through various listservs that plans are afoot for a rally in Albany to mark the fourth anniversary of the Iraq war.
At a meeting in Albany, 55 people representing peace groups from throughout the region called for a march and rally to mark the 4th anniversary of the Iraqi war - a war that has now gone on longer than World War II. The march and rally will be held on Sunday, March 18 at 2 PM. We will start at the Capital Plaza Museum stairs and marching to the Federal Building. As we march, each person will carry the name of one US GI who was killed in the Iraq war. As of today, over 3100 Americans and 650,000 Iraqis have died.
. . .
If you would like to participate in the building of this event, please join us at the next meeting of the Northeast Peace and Justice Action Coalition on Thursday, February 22 at 5:30 PM at the Albany Friends Meeting House, 727 Madison Ave., Albany.
