Courthouse Protest January 28th

January 26, 2006

You may have seen flyers around on campus for a protest this Saturday, January 28th at the Greensburg Courthouse. I figured I'd post the text of the flyer here, just in case you haven't. One of the sponsors of this event is a friend of a friend, and I'll be there if anyone's interested in joining me?

FLYER TEXT:

Come Join Suburban Awakening and members of your local community to show your opposition to the War In Iraq. This war has cost the lives of over 30,000 Iraqis and over 2,000 men and women from the United States Armed Forces. Join in the peaceful gathering to let those in power know that you will not stand idly by while a war based on lies is fought in the name of...
FREEDOM!

End The War In Iraq

At The Greensburg Courthouse (Corner of Main Street (old 66) & Otterman)

"Suburban Awakening is a small group of young people from Westmoreland County who would like to invite people both locally and non-locally to stand in solidarity against the horribly unjust war that is being fought in Iraq in our name. Stemming from members of the Pittsburgh Organizing Group that feel that protest needs to be broadened to the areas outside of Pittsburgh also, especially suburbs
and smalls towns, we hope to help people find their voices in places where they haven't yet been recognized."

Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful committed citizens can change the world. Indeed it is the only thing that ever has.
-Margaret Mead-

If you want more information you can contact either Lindsey or Ryan. When I find out more information about Suburban Awakenings, I'll blog about it. Maybe I'll see you out and about on Saturday.

How did things go? I read about it in City Paper and wanted to come out, but I couldn't manage.
