Out of Iraq Town Forum in Sacramento January 7, 1-3 pm

by Dan Bacher (danielbacher [at] hotmail.com)
Hi everyone!

Let's start the new year right by mobilizing for a great anti-war event in Sacramento on January 7! Last year was a huge year for activists in Sacramento, with the Iraq withdrawal resolution passed by the Sacramento City Council, Cindy Sheehan's and Code Pink's campaign to pull California Guard members out of Iraq and the Pearcy's anti-war art displays all making the national news.

Please pass this on this announcement from Karen Bernal and Cathlyn Daly to anyone you think might be interested. Also, please take a moment and register at afterdowningstreet.org. Thanks so much!
