National Vigil Opposing War on Syria

nowarsyria-smallA national vigil was called by MoveOn.org and other organizations, and AFSC hosted one in Northampton. We held a vigil outside of the Courthouse in order to demonstrate our opposition to an attack upon Syria. We could not afford a new war, and we did not WANT a new war. We needed to demonstrate the overwhelming sentiment that the people of the U.S. DO NOT WANT ANOTHER WAR!

The President, fearing a “no” vote in the Senate on Wednesday, took to the air Tuesday night to make his case for war. Monday night was OUR night to say “NO MORE!”

Location and Time:
7pm, Monday 9/9
Outside Courthouse, Main & King St.
Northampton, MA 01060

AFSC provided some signs and candles – but people were welcome to bring your own!

Sponsored by: American Friends Service Committee (AFSC), MoveOn, Budget for All, Alliance for Peace and Justice.
