Vigil in Times Square Wednesday Evening


U.S. Death Toll in Iraq Tops 2,000

Tomorrow, Wed, 10/26, join veterans, military families and United for Peace and Justice NYC for a solemn vigil at the Times Square Recruiting Center on 43rd St. and Broadway. 6:00 - 7:00 p.m. Bring flowers to lay on the doorstep of the Recruiting Center and banners and signs.

We have just received word that the moment we have been dreading has arrived: 2,000 U.S. servicepeople have now died in Iraq. We grieve for these two thousand men and women, killed in the prime of their lives, for a war based on lies, and we grieve for the tens of thousands of Iraqis who have also died in the chaos and carnage the Bush Administration has brought to their country.

It's time to bring the troops home -- now. Not one more U.S. serviceperson should give his or her life to this senseless war. Not one more Iraqi should be killed. Not one more U.S. dollar should be spent sustaining this war and occupation.

All around the country, people will gather tomorrow, Wednesday, October 26, to honor the dead and call for the troops to come home. Over 400 events have been planned.

UFPJ is supporting the call made by UFPJ member groups -- American Friends Service Committee, Gold Star Families for Peace and Military Families Speak Out -- for these actions.
