Nationwide Actions 'Declare Peace', Raise Pressure on Congress
by Haider Rizvi
NEW YORK - A nationwide civil disobedience campaign aiming to force the administration of President George W. Bush and the U.S. Congress to end the military occupation of Iraq is now in full swing.
Anti-war demonstrators block a gate to the White House in Washington, Thursday, Sept. 21, 2006, after marching in front of the White House protesting the war in Iraq. Park police officers arrested 34 of the demonstrators after they refused to leave.
More than 500 peace groups and justice organizations from all over the United States have joined the "Declaration of Peace," a week-long comprehensive campaign that calls for a prompt timetable for the withdrawal of U.S. troops from Iraq.
Those who signed the Declaration this week pledged to hold demonstrations, rallies, marches, and vigils in hundreds of cities across the country, which will continue until next Thursday.
My next roadtrip looks to be much more fun and relaxing at any rate. A wise man once said to dance away the heartache, so I'm takin' his advice.
