Mount Pleasant Rally for Peace on Sunday March 19

Isabella Peacemakers will rally for peace at 3:00 pm, Sunday afternoon, March 19, the third anniversary of the start of the Iraq War. Folks will gather at the Town Center, at the intersection of Broadway and Main Street. Signs are welcome. There will be a couple of impromptu speeches, including one written by Mark Twain. (He did not much like war, either.) Besides Democrats, we expect individuals from the Unitarian Universalist Fellowship, the Great Lakes Humanist Society, St John's Episcopal Church, the Lutherans, the Methodists and the Pine River Friends' Meeting. This is one of 250 such demonstrations from coast to coast sponsored by the American Friends Service Committee, long noted for their efforts for peace. People from all churches, and also those who do not go to any church are invited to take part in the demonstration. The number of such demonstrations is growing rapidly, as the idea catches on in city after city. There are thirteen such demonstrations in Michigan, with more expected to come. Folks may see what other towns and cities are holding peace rallies and register online at the AFSC site .
