Thank you for ALL of you who came out to the streets of Northampton today for the march and rally. Today was a promising sign of things to come!
Check out the media coverage:
- WWLP: Iraq War – 7 Years Later
- Republican (MassLive.com): “Demonstrators in Northampton”
- Valley Post: Hundreds in Northampton for Peace
Some of the speeches from the rally:
- Marty Nathan (introduction)
- Greg Speeter (from the National Priorities Project)
- Claudia Lefko (Alliance for Peace and Justice)
- Sally Weiss (Alliance for Peace and Justice)
Money for jobs and education, not war and occupation.
The next time you hear they have to cut back programs and services; the next time you hear it’s not possible to make college tuition affordable for everyone; or that, for whatever reason, your future didn’t make it into the state’sÂ latestÂ appropriations bill, ask yourself, why not?
On the 7th anniversary of the US war on Iraq, add your voice to thoseÂ demanding an end to wars in Iraq, Afghanistan, and Pakistan.
