  • Soldiers and Civilians Speak Out march & rally in Syracuse

    Posted by Green Party Peace Network on September 30, 2007

    dsc_7036.jpgOver 2,500 peace activists attended a march and rally in Syracuse, New York on Saturday, September 29, the largest such event in upstate New York since the Vietnam War. Local papers covered it well today.

    Called by Iraq Veterans Against the War and active duty soldiers at nearby Fort Drum, the event was hosted by the Syracuse Peace Council, SEIU 1199 the Student Peace Action Network and was endorsed by the New York Green Party.

    A few dozen Greens Party members and Green Party State Committee members participated in key roles as organizers and speakers. Prominent in our Green contingent with several banners were Green Party veterans from Korea, Vietnam and both wars against Iraq. Greens from around the state, including Albany, Buffalo, New Paltz, New York City, Saratoga Springs and Glens Falls attended.

    Additional photos from the event can be found here.
