Subject: BIG PEACE RALLY March 21 -- LET IT BE KNOWN!
-- Please forward freely --
LET THE NEW ADMINISTRATION KNOW:
WE DO WANT PEACE!
Rally on SATURDAY, MARCH 21, 11:00 am at Embarcadero, San
Francisco, then march to Civic Center.
To go over from the East Bay, join LMNOP, Lake Merritt
Neighbors Organized for Peace, the folks who march around
Lake Merritt virtually every Sunday since 2001. Arrive at
Macarthur BART between 10:15-10:25, go through the turnstile
HERE'S AN UNABASHED PITCH for going to peace rallies!
At the best rallies, it's like you've thrown a big
party without having to set up or clean up!
And you get to:
....walk and talk with a bunch of friends from different
....meet new people
....ignore or listen to passionate (angry?) people
....admire clever signs on adults, children and dogs
....hear some great music, especially drums
....take part in the type of nonviolent movements that have
worked over the ages, and that are still working (as in
Latin America, where the truth behind the news stories is
that Latin America is moving toward real democracies and
It's been SIX years since the Iraq occupation started.
Collectively, let's tell our new administration in
Washington what we want. Again! With this administration,
there's a chance we WILL BE HEARD.
P.S. Here's to hoping that many many folks will be at
the rally -- even if they agree more with other peace
organizations than they do with A.N.S.W.E.R.!
