Mon., Aug. 27, 2007, 9:06 a.m. to Hold CdA Anti-War Vigil

At 7 p.m. Tuesday the Political Action in Coeur d’Alene will hold a candlelight vigil at Independence Point to call on Congress to vote to end the war in September. “It’s time for the Bush Administration to stop looking through rose-colored glasses and realize that the surge has been a total failure,” said Cathleen O’Connor, a local MoveOn member. “Rep. Sali must Stand Up in September and vote to end this religious civil war that can’t be won.” Participants in the vigil will read from a “War Toll Calendar” to honor and remember the soldiers that have died in the past year in the unwinnable religious civil war in Iraq. Vigils like this one are part of national Take A Stand Day - a coordinated day of action to end the war initiated by the Americans Against Escalation in Iraq coalition, including Political Action,, the Service Employees International Union, True Majority and others.
