The Sixth Annual Rally in the Valley for Peace and Justice ... Now! was organized by Peace Fresno. Shortly before the event Scott Key, Peace Fresno president, said "once more we will Rally to insist that enough is enough. We must stop the immoral and unjust Occupation of Iraq. We must stop the immoral, unjust, and senseless killing of more than a million Iraqis and of more than four thousand of our own troops. We must stop spending $1 trillion plus per year on war and preparing for war and on subsidizing the wealthy corporations that support this military killing machine. As a nation, we must take the lead in establishing peace and justice for all, both nationally and globally."

Speakers at the Rally included Eli Paintedcrow, Native American and 22 year Army veteran who served in Iraq; the Rev. Bryan Jessup, Minister at the Unitarian Universalist Church of Fresno; Gloria Hernandez, Comite No Nos Vamos, and Scott Key, President of Peace Fresno. Music was supplied by the Raging Grannies, Frank Moschella, Uncle Bill Warner, and "The Collective", a group of local high school and college musicians.
