Why are you participating in the peace march?
Asked at the "Cost of War" march and peace rally on September 25, 2005
“I think the war was misguided from the very beginning. George Bush has a very simplistic understanding of the world, and we’re here to add some complexity.”
“Because I support peace in every way. I’m also here because large groups of people create awareness, and this is only one of many ways that people can advocate for and support peace.”
“Because I learned about how bad this war was while I was still in Japan. There is no benefit to this war, and a lot of soldiers and Iraqi people have been killed. I hate that.”
“Because it all starts with a small group of people. I just saw Lech Walesa at the Lied Center. He’s the one who started the Solidarity movement, and if he can do it, then why can’t we?””
