AWP Events: Writers Against War & Occupation in Afghanistan & Iraq
Join us for an organized, authorized protest:
Writers Against War & Occupation in Afghanistan & Iraq
Thursday February 3, 3:30-4:30 pm, Rain, Snow, or Shine
Assemble in Lafayette Park, Pennsylvania Ave. (across from the White House) at 3:30 pm. Walk across the street to the sidewalk in front of the White House (Metro stops: Farragut North or McPherson Square). Critical mass gathering for a show of unity in opposition to U.S. Wars and Occupation of Afghanistan and Iraq. A minute of silence will be observed for each year of each war (sixteen minutes), followed by our simultaneous reading of lines of poetry (probably lines from Whitman). We will end this brief action by chanting Stop Funding War.
