Speaking Out- For Truth, Peace and Justice

Sunday, The birthday of Martin Luther King Jr., January 15, 2006 11 am to 1 pm

Lytton Plaza, (University x Emerson, Downtown Palo Alto,
just a few blocks from the University Ave. Train Station)

This day holds great meaning for many Americans and people throughout the world who honor the life, words, actions and legacy of Martin Luther King Jr.. The day is also the anniversary of a march upon Congresswoman Anna Eshoo’s office in 2002 Demanding a Congressional Investigation of 9/11. In 2003, a subsequent march took place Demanding an End to the 9/11 Cover-Up, Repeal of the Patriot Act, and the Pre-Emptive Impeachment of Bush. Lytton Plaza has also been the site of a weekly Listening Project, since October 2001 inspired by a Colombian woman’s efforts to defuse violence using the most gentle, non-violent means possible- “listening.”

Time to speak truths censored by the mainstream press, truths which birth the movements for social change, for peace and justice. A range of activists will speak, including newly elected City Councilman Peter Drekmeier, Swami Beyondananda, T.U.C.’s Maria Gilardin, Taking Aim’s Ralph Schoenman, Ken Jenkins, John Bass, Ed Rippy, David Kubiak, Christian Pecaut, and Green Candidates Laura Wells, Tian Harter and Carol Brouillet. This will be Carol Brouillet's Campaign Launch for Congress on an Impeach Bush, Repeal the Patriot Act, Real Security not Fake Security- Truth, Peace, Justice, Ecological Wisdom Platformhttp://www.communitycurrency.org/CampaignLaunch.html
