Bus Trip Planned to New York Peace Rally
On Saturday, April 29, Mainers will board buses to travel to New York City to take part in the United for Peace and Justice mobilization to end the war in Iraq. The march will step off at noon and proceed through the streets of New York City and culminate with a massive action-oriented festival, featuring hundreds of grassroots groups and campaigns.
According to United for Peace and Justice, this will not be a traditional rally. Although the primary focus of the mobilization will be the war, there will be tents dedicated to different issues and themes; exhibits, displays, and information; street performers; and much more. The action has garnered the support of over 900 organizations.
