ANTI-WAR MARCH

March on Sunday, Aug. 24 from the State Capitol to the Pepsi Center

This will be one of the biggest marches of the DNC, so make sure you don't miss it. Unfortunately, some local and national peace groups (United for Peace and Justice, Rocky Mountain Peace Center, Alliance for Real Democracy, and others) are encouraging their members not to participate in any mass marches during the DNC, presumably to appease the Democrats. The World Can't Wait has organized a petition asking for SOLIDARITY among all progressive groups to participate in this march so that we may show our strength in numbers. Please, take a couple of minutes to sign the petition:
