Five Years Too Many - Peace Event in Charleston, Tue. at 5:15 p.m.

It's hard to believe that it's been 5 years since the United States invaded and began our occupation of Iraq, but sadly it's true.

To help support efforts that bring our brave soldiers home safely, (not to mention help us climb out of the recession that the occupation is causing for our economy), WV Patriots for Peace is convening the following event:

FIVE YEARS TOO MANY: HONOR THE DEAD, DEMAND AN END
March 18th, 2008, 5:15pm
Charleston, WV


Patriots for Peace Call for an End to the War
West Virginia Veteran Memorial, WV State Capitol Complex
(Corner of Greenbrier and Washington Street)

Patriots for Peace LogoPlease join WV Patriots for Peace and Citizen Action Group to honor the fallen, and to call for an end to this unnecessary and immoral war. Not one more dollar and not more life can be spared, we must act NOW.

We will gather around the Wall of Remembrance at the WV Veteran Memorial for a brief program, and then march together with signs and noisemakers to the riverside.

Bring your kids (and strollers), bring your friends, and bring a noisemaker of your choice—whistle, pots and pans, drum, tambourine-- we need to stand and BE HEARD together.

If you are unable to attend on Tuesday, wear a white armband to school or to work on Wednesday, March 19th to show solidarity with people across the country and all over the world who want this war to end.

Send response to lida_prince@yahoo.com or call (304) 342-4412.

For those in the Eastern Panhandle, there's also a Peace Event on Wednesday in Shepherdstown.
