  • Join Active duty Soldiers from Fort Drum and people from across New York State to demand and end to the war.

    Posted by Green Party Peace Network on September 13, 2007

    Six months ago you came out to show your disapproval of the US Invasion and Occupation of Iraq and to Remember The Fallen Soldiers and Iraqi Citizens.

    Today, we are writing to ask you to join us again on September 29th to support Active Duty Soldiers from Fort Drum who are members of the only active duty chapter of the Iraq Veterans Against the War (IVAW).

    Since this peace action is being initiated by Active Duty Soldiers, this will be an historic demonstration against the Iraq war. Soldiers everywhere will learn about it. The demonstration will build prestige for the IVAW chapter at Fort Drum, and it exposes as a lie the notion that the peace movement is anti-soldier. It will tell the world that soldiers, too, are against the war.

    It is the responsibility of all of us that consider ourselves part of the Peace Movement that we make this rally a success. This may be the most important anti-war rally ever held in Upstate New York, or even the country.

    This Peace Rally will be held in Syracuse, New York, the closest large city to Fort Drum, and on any given weekend, there are many soldiers on leave there. Fort Drum has also suffered a larger number of casualties than any other military base in the U.S.

    The current agenda is:

    1:00 – 2:00 pm Opening Rally at Everson Museum Plaza – 401 Harrison Street, Syracuse
    2:00 – 2:30 pm Assemble for Peace March
    2:30 – 4:00 pm Peace March to Syracuse University
    4:00 pm Closing Rally at Syracuse University
    6:00 – 7:00 pm Regional Networking
    8:00 pm Panel Discussion at The Hendricks University Chapel with Dahlia Wasfi, Scott Ritter and Jimmy Massey

    Additional details can be found at Neighbors for Peace and at Syracuse Peace Council.
