LIGHTNING! BELLS! FLASHES! TRUMPETS!

Mayor Rocky Anderson will shout STOP THE WAR to hundreds of thousands (if we dare hope those numbers in this weather) on January 27, 2007.

Within echo distance of The White House, The Capitol, The Jefferson Memorial, The brooding granite Lincoln, and The Black Wall of Sorrow, Mayor Rocky--as we think of him--will stand tall for Decency and Wisdom. He will be beside The Rev. Jesse Jackson and others of national stature. He is already one of them.

A huge contingent should roll out of Salt Lake City. (We all should try to make clear that Salt Lake City is not “a Mormon City” as is sometimes reported.)

Those who cannot go to Washington for whatever reason, should donate, if they can, to help fund others who can go.

We salute all opponents of violence, cruelty, and injustice. Justice serves the cause of Peace.

Information about “Move On” (among the sponsors of the DC events) can be found at: http://www.moveon.org/about.html.  As well, here’s a link to United for Peace and Justice, another sponsor: http://www.unitedforpeace.org. In Salt Lake City, there’s a link for People for Peace and Justice of Utah: http://www.desertgreens.org.

Some plans for Salt Lake City on that January 27th are at: http://www.unitedforpeace.org/calendar.php?calid=19812.
