Iraq peace vigil changes location

March 12, 2009


The Lawrence Coalition for Peace and Justice is moving its Saturday peace vigil to a new downtown location.

The organization has conducted the vigil outside the Douglas County Courthouse, 1100 Mass., since September 2002 in response to talk of war with Iraq. It has continued to meet there from noon to 1 p.m. in protest of the war.

Now the vigil is being moved to the southeast corner of Ninth and Massachusetts streets. Participants will have more of an opportunity for discussion and interaction with pedestrians, coalition member Joe Douglas said.

“We believe that open, respectful discussion leads to better awareness and understanding by all parties involved,” he said.

Thank you Mr. Douglas and to the rest of The Lawrence Coalition for Peace and Justice for keeping it REAL!

Moving because this was about Bush, not the war, and now with Bush gone, they just want to go back to their usual hippi spot.

"Bong Hits..." yep, lets listen to this guy about putting Bush in Jail.
