It's not too early to start promoting the events of September 24-26 in DC. If Cindy can go to Crawford in summer, we can march on the Mall in the fall

Around other blogs on this, Cindy Sheehan, week, I've seen some commenters questioning what they can do to support her, or to show their opposition to the war that killed her son (and the sons and daughters of many other Iraqi, American, British, Bulgarian, Danish, Dutch, Estonian, Hungarian, Italian, Kazakh, Latvian, Polish, Salvadoran, Slovakian, Spanish, Thai, and Ukrainian mothers). Someone even mentioned the possibility of organizing a massive march on Washington, as if they didn't know that this one is already in the advanced planning stages .
This march against the war has been in the preparation stages by United for Peace and Justice for awhile, but the word doesn't seem to be spreading quickly enough.
This group did a wonderful job on the major marches in New York City right before the current war began on February 15, 2003 in the neighborhood of the UN, and a month later, after the war began, marching from Herald Square to Washington Square Park. Hundreds of thousands of us have wonderful memories of both those days (even if we were ignored by the media, and by a President who called us a focus group unworthy of his attention).
Even if you can't make it yourself, you can help them spread the word on your blogs and webpages and emails. There are banners here. Please consider adding one to your sidebar for the next month and a half.

True Blue,

Thanks for dropping in and providing info. You are correct, I had no idea about the Sept. 24th March.

Perhaps it would be easier and best if I rolled my idea into this march. Either way, I'll be in Washington Sept. 24th.

Thanks for the support and your blog is great. You're on the blogroll as soon as I update it.

Keep up the good work.
