Report from Appleton, Wisc.
The Fox Valley Peace Coalition held the first rally in a year. The first year of the war we held one every Saturday at 11. We have also done candlelight vigils and are planning one when we hit 2,000 deceased. FOR (Fellowship of Reconciliation) also works with us. During the academic calendar we sponsor video/CD/DVD times and bring in speakers.
We had over 50 people in attendance at a downtown, peace corner, rally from 5-6 tonight. Public response was very favorable. 2 TV stations gave us good time, one actually at 3 different times.
The Post Crescent Newspaper had a short on Sunday and will follow up with a story and photo tomorrow.
Folks had signs and flags. Two WW II vets (one is a regular), a Korean vet, young mom with 3 tiny children, people running for WI legislature, etc.
We are also a member of the Wisconsin Network for Peace and Justice, located in Madison. I helped found this group during Desert Storm. It now numbers over 140 state organizations. Suggest you do a word search and see their weekly announcement pages. There are many things going on in WI.
