    Greens around the country will be taking the Green Party Peace Message to the streets in a national day of action to protest US wars in Afghanistan and Iraq


    Taken from the GPUS National Discussion List:

    OHIO:
    The ‘Green Party Stands for PEACE’ will be the sign that will be carried at the peace vigil in Dayton next Saturday. We asking Green National Committee Delegates and party members to participate in some action or event on Saturday, October 17th. Some cities have active coalitions who are mobilizing. But in most cities and towns there may not be any organized effort. In those areas you may want to plan some event or action either in coalition with other groups or as the Green Party. In Dayton, we are planning 2 street vigils/protests. A small action will be better than none.

    We hope to have a follow up to Oct. 17 th. with a conference call to talk about the party’s roll in the peace movement and how we can move things forward. We believe peace education and direct actions go hand in hand.

    The GPCO is participating in:

    8 Years in Afghanistan: The Human Cost

    Join us for Eyes Wide Open, the Human Cost of War, As there are
    commemorations all around the world to mark this chilling anniversary, we will be participating in Denver with the Eyes Wide Open Exhibit

    Saturday, October 17, 2009
    9 am – 2pm

    At noon there will be a special remembrance of lives lost in Afghanistan and Iraq, both civilian and military.

    The location is the public space between the library and the art museum in downtown Denver. 10 W 14th Ave Parkway

    MICHIGAN:
    North Country Greens will be having a small action at the post office in Marquette,Michigan on October 17th with signs against the wars and slogans such as “Health Care not Warfare – Green Party.” (We spent September focusing on vigiling for HR 676.) Not muchfoot traffic for leafletting, but lots of car traffic at the intersection to see our signs and two Green Party green banners.

    October 17th is an opportunity to get “peace” and “Green Party” connected in folks’ minds, and to point out that both the Democrats and Republicans are war parties, despite
    Obama’s Nobel Peace Prize. Even small actions are important. Let’s do it, Greens!
