Dallas Street Action Set for March 19

The press release below calls a peace march in the streets of downtown Dallas for March 19. Everyone who opposes the ongoing war, and that includes a lot of union activists, will want to participate. The so-called "war on terror" is based on fear and a considerable amount of racism. Jobs with Justice activists, who are specialists in opposing the disunity caused by racism, might consider forming an anti-racist contingent in the march.

Here is the press release:

Walt Harrison, Camp Casey Dallas, 800-490-8161 ext 103,
Hadi Jawad, Dallas Peace Center, End the Occupation of Iraq Committee, 214-392-2939
Trish Major, Dallas Peace Center Communications Director, 214-823-7793


Three years ago, the United States launched an unprovoked invasion and occupation of Iraq. On the third anniversary of the war, Sunday, March 19, 2006, a rally and march to "Stop the War Now and Bring Our Troops Home," will take place in Dallas at 2:00 p.m.

The rallying point will be St. Paul United Methodist Church, 1816 Routh St. in downtown Dallas. Participants will begin gathering outside the church at 1:30 p.m., and a rally, consisting of speakers and music, will start at 2:00 p.m. The march immediately following will be from Routh St., west on Ross, then south on Griffin St., and east on Commerce to the Earle Cabell Federal Building. From there, marchers will be provided refreshments by Food Not Bombs.

All are invited to the morning services held at the St. Paul United Methodist Church by Rev. L. Charles Stovall, which will center on the tragic consequences of the invasion and occupation of Iraq and possible solutions. The service begins at 10:45 a.m. and people of all faiths are encouraged to show their support for ending this war by attending this service.
