At yesterday’s Vigil For Peace, a gathering of 6 people shared this flier Op Ed Iran 7R__ by Paula Rogge, detailing Representative Barbara Lee’s effort to repeal the 2001 and 2002 AMUF for Aghanistan and Iran, which has since been loosely interpreted to justify continuing US military involvement throughout the world.
Full Op Ed to come!
We thank the Vigil participants for all your continued good work!

The Original Mother’s Day Proclamation By Julia Ward Howe
Last Monday, April 22nd was Earth Day, the 49th Earth Day since it was first observed on April 22, 1970. The theme of Earth Day 2019 is to protect and save all species.
Leslie Cagan, United for Peace and Justice Co-founder: “Now is the time for even greater activism to end the endless wars, to stop potentially catastrophic new wars,
and to link the work for peace to the movements for special, economic and climate justice.” (b. 1947- )
