 Cape Codders for Peace and Justice call on the peace community to come to
Martha's Vineyard on Saturday, August 29 to bear witness to peace and call
for and end to war.   We call on President Obama to end the wars and bring
the troops home now.

 We will gather along the beach road (Seaview Avenue) near the Oak Bluffs
ferry terminal from 9-5 PM.  CCPJ will have signs that read 'End War'.
There is no shade so bring an umbrella and sunscreen.  Restaurants are close
by for food and beverages. Come to the vigil for 8 minutes or 8 hours, but
please come for peace!!

How to get there:
Below is a link for ferry service to the Vineyard.  Some boats go directly
to Oak Bluffs.  There is good public transportation on the island so it is
easy if  you want to arrive in Vineyard Haven and take a bus to Oak
Bluffs.  The Island Queen out of Falmouth is $18 round trip and goes
directly to Oak Bluffs. The Steamship Authority out of Woods Holes is $15
round trip.  For transportation questions, contact Paul at (508)419-1154 or
Diane at (508)776-3132.  Donations are accepted to defer the cost of travel
for those that need support.  Please send to:  CCPJ, PO BOX  173,  Cotuit,
MA  02635


Cindy Sheehan is planning to be on the Vineyard Tues-Sunday.  She will join
in our vigil sometime during the day.

toughness. We must meet the forces of hate with the power of love..." Dr.

I remember back in the good ol' days of 2005 and 2006 when being against the
wars was not only politically correct, but it was very popular. I remember
receiving dozens of awards, uncountable accolades and was even nominated for
the Nobel Peace Prize........ www.CindySheehansSoapbox.com
