Try going to www.mothersforpeace.net, and definitely sign up for their email list. There's been some pretty interesting information about actions for peace. And also some disturbing news about how those who are active for peace are being treated.
A great source of information for alternative news is alternet.org. Check that out too!
I know that sunshinemama is having some trouble getting on these boards. The mothers for peace site is up and running so check it out ... you can get a poster through the website. If for some reason you can't get to it, you can email me and I will get you in contact with sunshinemama. email@example.com
Sunshinemama did a wonderful job with the "Mothers for Peace" website, she keeps adding more links and articles.
In Chicago I have been somewhat active with a group called Peace Response and I participated in a few meditations and prayer groups. I'm not genearlly one to participate in protests, so I haven't done that. A friend here in Chicago is forming a local group of "mother for peace", but it is very fledgling.
Anybody who wants more info, let me know...

I heard a great show on radio today - didn't catch any links, but few details stuck with me.
Their slogan is "WELFARE not WARFARE, investing in caring not killing" (Apparently 1.17% of the US budget goes to welfare and 22.26% to warfare..)- They do actions and teach-ins around the country (one on SF, CA tomorrow, one coming up in Philadelphia - in case you're near!) But unfortunately am not sure how to contact them or find out more.. at this point.
