REBEL YELL - Buses depart from Portland for an October anti-war rally in NYC

Well, fall has begun. It's the season just cool enough to make us more productive and just sunny enough to keep us away from the cloud-induced depression which can make motivation go into hibernation. If you're feeling motivated to beat a bongo drum and yell about the War in Iraq in the City That Never Sleeps, your day is close at hand. On October 9, buses will depart from Portland for an anti-war rally on Wall Street in NYC. Peace Action Maine is organizing this Columbus Day event, which will include speakers like "Tiokasin Ghosthorse from First Voices @ WBAI Radio in NYC, the War Resisters League of NYC, naming out "The Merchants of Death," Melissa Van New York State Peace Action Director, Madelyn Hoffman New Jersey State Peace Action Director, Lawrence Hamm People's Organization for Progress Director, and others," according to an email hyping the event circulated by Maine Veterans for Peace.
