Sewanee Peace Vigil, Oct. 7, 4:30pm
CCJP will host a Peace Vigil calling for a halt to U.S. military action in Afghanistan on Wednesday, October 7, 4:30 pm, on the corner of University Avenue and Highway 41A. Participants are encouraged to wear black and to display a sign expressing their opposition to U.S. militarism. October 7 marks the eighth anniversary of the U.S.-Afghanistan conflict which began on October 7, 2001, when the U.S. launched Operation Enduring Freedom with the goal of neutralizing the international terrorist group al-Qaeda, which claimed responsibility for the September 11 attacks on New York City and Washington, D.C. According to most foreign policy experts, al-Qaeda is no longer a presence in the country. Signs will be available at the vigil site. Participants may park in the Sewanee Gardener’ Market lot at the corner of Highway 41A and Hawkins Lane. For more information contact Leslie Lytle at 592-6594 or email@example.com.
