Peace March This Saturday
I'll be unable to attend, but I thought I would pass this along:
From Baghdad to Binghampton....From Fallujah to Frayser. The People Have Spoken: Support Our Troops - End the War - Bring them Home Now. Too many, in Memphis across the country and in Iraq, are suffering from a war that should have never happened.
Location: National Civil Rights Museum, gather in the outside courtyard. March route is approximately 2miles. We will make a loop starting at the Civil Rights Museum, east on G.E. Patterson, north on Danny Thomas to the King Labor Center at Danny Thomas and Beale (where we will honor Dr. King with a symbolic action.) We will then proceed west on Beale to Main and back to the Museum. The King Labor Center is the halfway point of the march. We will have plenty of water available here and will pause to rest. We are working on transportation to take those unable to make the whole march back to the start. If transport is unavailable we recommend that groups park one car at the King Labor Center and carpool.
