Peace train



For those of you who want to wage peace, a new anti-war coalition will hold a rally against war and racism on Saturday, Sept. 29, in Washington, D.C.

Organizers of the event intend to send a message they hope will heard amid the thunderous war drums that fill the air around us:

“Unless we stop President Bush and NATO from carrying out a new, wider war in the Middle East, the number of innocent victims will grow from the thousands to the tens of thousands and possibly more. A new, wider U.S. and NATO war in the Middle East can only lead to an escalating cycle of violence. War is not the answer.”

The Detroit branch of the International Action Center is preparing a caravan to attend the rally. Round trip cost will be $40 per person. For more information phone 313-831-0750 or e-mail
