Iraqi War Memorial in Santa Cruz on Hiroshima Day

Tuesday Aug 8th, 2006 8:20 PM
On August 6th, members of the Buddhist Peace Fellowship of Santa Cruz used the Hiroshima Day anniversary to draw attention to the casualties of the war in Iraq. All day at the corner of Center and Lincoln Streets, the group displayed a three foot tall, hundred foot long, scroll listing 40,000 names of Iraqi civilians killed in the war. There was also a pair of booths created which listed the names, photos, and brief stories, of over 2,000 US and coalition soldiers who also died in the war.

"Stop The Slaughter In Lebanon, Israel and the Occupied Territories!"

I fully agree and also call for Israeli soldiers and settlers to leave Lebanon, Palestine and the Occupied Territories.
