OUTCRY FOR PEACE! TODAY, September 21 5 to 7 pm Congress Avenue Bridge
JOIN OUR OUTCRY for peace by gathering on the Congress Avenue Bridge sidewalks from 5 pm to 7 pm.
OUTCRY FOR PEACE is part of the Declaration of Peace a nationwide campaign to establish by September 21, 2006 a concrete and rapid plan for peace in Iraq, including:
– a prompt timetable for withdrawal of troops and closure of bases
– a peace process for security, reconstruction, and reconciliation and
– the shift of funding for war to meeting human needs
If this plan for peace is not created and activated by Congress by September 21, the International Day of Peace Declaration signers across the U.S. will engage in nonviolent action from 9/21 to 9/28 in Washington, D.C. and in communities throughout the nation.
Sponsored by Code Pink Austin, in conjunction with the Austin Center for Peace and Justice.
