Sponsored by United for Peace and Justice NYC, NYC Forum of Concerned
Religious Leaders, and Not in Our Name
We rallied on February 15 -- and NOW WE WILL MARCH IN PEACE to prevent this
war! Our march will be in conjunction with a national day of action,
including student actions taking place on over 300 campuses around the country.
Senators Hillary Clinton and Chuck Schumer voted "yes" on the resolution to
send our country into war on Iraq. They must be held accountable! Let's
show them that New Yorkers say NO to war!
Join us for a legal candlelight march on the sidewalks of OUR city, led by
community, religious, political and labor leaders. We will begin outside
Hillary Clinton's office (780 Third Ave. @ 47th), proceed downtown past
Chuck Schumer's office (757 Third Ave. @ 46th), and march peacefully from
there to Washington Square Park for a candlelight vigil.

an organizing meeting on Thursday, Feb. 27 at 6:30PM, 330 W. 42nd Street,
