  The Assembling Peace parties are designed to create a setting in which veteran peace and justice activists can gather, network and socialize in a fun, relaxed and positive setting while encouraging interested newcomers to learn about and participate in alternative political and social awareness and action. 
   
  At an Assembling Peace party you will find a variety of activist groups speaking and tabling, musical and theatrical performers, film, books, art, food, beer, wine, fair trade coffee, dancing, discussion, massage and more.  
   
  There will be organizations setting up information tables and speakers on the subjects of the anti-war movement, global justice, class, human rights, racism, sexism, environmental sustainability, labor, trade, capitalism, socialism, etc. There will also be musicians, artists, massage, food, beer/wine, coffee, etc. 
   
  Assembling Peace V is a fundraiser for the Stop the Wars Coalition (STWC). The Stop the Wars Coalition is an anti-war group that formed out of the organizing efforts in the Boston area during 2005 to stage a mass rally against the U.S. wars in Iraq and Afghanistan . After successfully staging a rally and march on October 29, 2005 featuring Cindy Sheehan and 3,000 participants; the October 29th Coalition evolved into the Greater Boston Stop the Wars Coalition, which has continued to organize many anti-war protests, host speakers, hold meetings, stage teach-ins and promote the “How Many More” campaign  (http://www.stopthewars.org/start/campaigns/howmanymore/index.htm) in the Boston area.
