[act-ma] Anti-WAR PROTESTS, OCT. 5-7

The following October peace protest is being organized, as in years past,
by VFP and UNAC, both participating now in DNC (#MOWSS). OccupyBoston
turned out in large numbers for the Oct. 2011 antiwar march--note that
InterOccupy is also an organizer this year--and although OB has a full
schedule for Sept., will probably want to add this to the SAA schedule for
October. (The planning call listed here is [reminder] the night before this
Thursday's Bradley Manning support rally, which we've discussed and which
is on the OB calendar.) Could the coordinators of all peace groups please
get the word out to their lists? Thanks! IS, Peace, Joan

As everyone knows, this October 7th will mark the 11th anniversary of the
U.S. war on Afghanistan. VFP is planning what promises to be a very
powerful action in New York City, and I hope many of you will be able to be
there. However, if you can't be in NYC, I encourage you to organize
protests in your own communities. The United National Antiwar Coalition
(UNAC) (of which VFP is a member organization) is having a planning call
this Wednesday, September 5th at 9:00 pm (EDT). This call is a good
opportunity to collaborate with other peace and justice organizations in
planning local actions. If you think you or your chapter might be
interested in organizing, or helping to organize a protest in your town, I
urge you to register for the conference call through the link below.
Please be sure to let the national VFP office know about your plans so we
can help publicize them.
