Friday, Oct. 17, is Iraq Moratorium day.
The Third Friday of every month is designated as a day to interrupt our daily routines and take some action, individually or collectively, to call for an end to the war and occupation of Iraq.
In Milwaukee, the Milwaukee Coalition for a Just Peace and Peace Action-Wisconsin sponsor a rush hour downtown vigil from 5 to 6 p.m. at the corner of Wisconsin Avenue and Water Street. People fill all four corners, hold signs, flags, and banners, leaflet pedestrians, and interact with drivers who show their support for getting out of Iraq.
If you can’t do that, consider taking some individual action. There are lots of ideas on the Iraq Moratorium website: http://www.iraqmoratorium.com/indiv_actions.htm
The Milwaukee action is one of a dozen or more across Wisconsin, which are listed here: http://iraqmoratoriumwis.blogspot.com/
You’ll find a full listing of events across the country here: http://iraq-moratorium.blogspot.com/ Since it began in September 2007, there have been nearly 1,500 Iraq Moratorium actions in 42 states and 236 communities. Join us.
