Pagan Peace Surprise as Part of March 5 Moratorium
by Will Doherty (wild [at] willdoherty.org)
Wednesday Mar 5th, 2003 4:37 PM
About 60 pagans and friends gathered in San Francisco's Union Square today to wage peace and amplify love. Participants cast a circle, invoked the directions, and spoke from the heart about why the war in Iraq cannot be alllowed to happen. They handed out flyers and leaflets to passersby, some of whom joined the circle, and chalked a large circle and peace, spiral, and yin-yang symbols on the pavement, then filled them in with colored sand. Some local students who had walked out from their high school joined the circle. After channeling energy to wage peace and prevent war, they opened the circle and sang while sweeping up the sand to bring it to the ocean.

"Ish ka la ma bood le la. La la e la. The ocean refuses no river, no river. The ocean refuses no river, no river."
