  • Emergency Anti-Escalation Rally , December 12, Lafayette Park at the White House

    Posted by dlt on December 1, 2009

    DEC.12TH 11AM-4PM DC
    End US Wars, is holding an Emergency Anti-Escalation Rally on December 12 at Lafayette Park at the White House, Washington DC, from 11am to 4pm.

    Featured speakers include: Cynthia McKinney, Senator Mike Gravel, Chris Hedges, David Swanson, Kathy Kelly, Betty Hall, Granny D (message), Lynne Williams, Elaine Bowers, Mathis Chiroux, Michael Knox, Ron Fisher and others.

    We are very excited about so many illustrious speakers, with more in the offing. Musical performers include Jordan Page.

    We expect to do a lot of action in DC around the time of Obama’s announcement. We also are planning events the evening of December 11th–a Green Party event, authors book signings, and Robert Greenwald’s new movie on Afghanistan.
    On Rally Day, December 12th: congregate at Lafayette Park, White House. Speakers are from 11am to 4 pm, with musical interludes. From 3pm to 4pm there is an organizational meeting ‘tea’ with peace movement leaders, to meet up at the rally, location TBA.

    Prior to the rally, we are planning a camera ready leaflet, down-loadable from the website , to be distributed at the events coming together between now and then, such as at the Dec. 1st peace vigil at 5 pm at the White House,  Amy Goodman’s speaking event in DC on Nov. 30, and other spontaneous activities now being discussed in the peace community. It will be available for local rally organizers to download and distribute during the days prior to the December 12th Anti-Escalation Rally.

    We are sounding the peace cry, declaring that the Peace Movement is not going to stand for the President’s abdication of the people he was elected to serve. We need to send him the message: We have had enough!

    We ask for your strong support and presence at the rally. Please go to our website: .
