Sunday, March 18
Assemble at 2pm at the MN Power Plaza for a march.
Rally at 2:30pm at the Duluth Civic Center.
The Northland Anti-War Coalition will be hosting a regional march and rally against the war in Iraq on Sunday, March 18. The rally is to commemorate the 4-year anniversary of the unjust United States invasion of Iraq. On that same weekend we'll be joined by hundreds of thousands of others who will be holding similar protests across the continent - inclunding a march on the Pentagon that'll be held on March 17 in Washington D.C.
Here in the Northwoods we plan to assemble on Sunday, March 18 at the MN Power Plaza, which is located at the corner of Lake Avenue & Superior St. in downtown Duluth. We'll be marching from the MN Power Plaza at 2pm up to the Duluth Civic Center, which is at 515 W. 1st Street [the Civic Center includes the Duluth Federal Bldg., County Courthouse & City Hall]. At the Civic Center we'll be holding a rally with speakers and music that'll begin at 2:30pm in front of the Priley Fountain.
Everyone is welcome and encouraged to attend. With the number of Americans and Iraqis loosing their lives growing by the day, we feel it is crucial to once again raise our voices and demand that the troops be brought home now. Public opinion is dramatically swinging in our favor, but we need to keep the anti-war movement visible and in the streets so as to provide a rallying point for this growing anti-war sentiment. We need you to join us to stand and be counted as a voice for peace on March 18!
