Friday is Iraq Moratorium #9

Iraq Moratorium #9, a day for individual or group action to end the war and occupation, will be observed on Friday, May 16, in Milwaukee and across the country.

A vigil from 5 to 6 p.m., at Water Street and Wisconsin Avenue in downtown Milwaukee, is sponsored by the Milwaukee Coalition for a Just Peace and Peace Action-Wisconsin. It’s a high energy event with flags, banners, signs, music, kids, students, and people of all ages joining in. I’ll be there; if you’re in town, please stop by.

If you can’t make that, or vigils aren’t your thing, do something yourself to mark the day. Wear a button or armband to work, put a sign in your yard, email Senator Herb Kohl, write a letter to the editor, make a donation to the Iraq Moratorium or another antiwar group. You’ll find ideas and more info at

Do what you can. But do something. It’s got to stop, and we’ve got to stop it.
