Are you among the conscientious objectors? If so, busloads of fellow travelers are ready to welcome you aboard when they roll into Washington, D.C., for a national march on Oct. 26 protesting George W. Bush’s bellicose policies. The Detroit’s International Action Center is organizing the local caravan. Cost for a seat is $60. In advance of that protest, a community rally opposing the war will be held Saturday, Oct. 19, at Detroit’s New Bethel Baptist Church, 8450 Linwood.
