Discover WMD on March 20th in Spokane
If WMD can be used to explain the U.S. war in Iraq, PJALS can use the same initials to explain why that war is bad for us, for them, and for the millions of bystanders whose lives are being threatened and degraded by this aggression.
WMD. War Means Death.
PJALS is joining with a number of other groups to take that solemn message to the streets of North Spokane on March 20, the anniversary of the 2003 invasion and bombing of Iraq by American and British military forces.
We will meet at Franklin Park, the northeast corner, for a 1:00 pm rally with music and speakers and memorial flags for those who have fallen in this war. Whether from combat, accident, suicide, or disease caused by the conflict. Whether Christian, Muslim, Jew or of another faith understanding.
At about 1:45, we'll carry our flags and signs north along Division and take them east on Francis to the armed forces recruiting center, and then return to Franklin Park.
The rally and march are in conjunction will others across the country and around the world calling for an end to the occupation, the safe return of our troops, and self-determination for the people of Iraq.
There will be events from Crawford, TX to Milwaukee, WI, and from Tallahassee to Seattle. Military families and veterans will take center stage in Fayetteville, NC , home of Ft Bragg and known to soldiers as Fatal-ville because of off-duty recreation of members of the 82nd Airborne and Special Forces trying to prove who's tougher and meaner. This rally will draw attention to the stop-loss policy that keeps personnel in the service beyond the time that they originally committed to, inadequate psychological and emotional services, and other issues of interest to military families and veterans. It will also demand that the government commit billions to education and the creation of jobs, not war and occupations.
In Spokane, there will be a booth for Peace Recruiting, offering pre-emptive conscientious objector cards and information to young people who are not allowed to register with the Selective Service System as CO's and now have a draft hanging darkly over their future (see top of this page).
Cathy Colton will play and sing for us, and confirmed speakers include Tom Jeannot and Mike Kress. You are urged to spread the word and share your ideas with the planning committee. The program in the park will not take long, and it will be shortened if the weather is bad.
Last minute information indicates we need volunteers to make lots of flags. Call PJALS. 838-7870
