The following calendar of antiwar events taking place in New York City for
September 3-5 by Steve Bloom, for the coordinating committee of Stand Up New
York--9/11 Remembrance for Global Peace and Justice, a coalition of groups
that are organizing the Sunday, September 8 march and rally against war and
repression and endorsing and building the all-night vigil at Washington
Square Park in New York City, beginning the evening of Tuesday, September 10
and ending the morning of Wednesday, September 11, which is sponsored by
Peaceful Tomorrows and other groups.
I think the scope and number of these activities taking place is an
indication of  the growing failure of the current administration to win and
hold the hearts and minds of people in New York, as they and their allies
organize the commemoration of the 9/11 events as a celebration of war and
repression. -- Fred Feldman
