North Country Peace Group Procession and Vigil 

  

Saturday, March 18, 2006, 11 a.m.  

King Kullen shopping center on 25A, Setauket 

  

The North Country Peace Group (NCPG), with the support of other Suffolk-based peace and social justice organizations, will mark the third anniversary of the start of the war in Iraq with a procession and vigil on Saturday, March 18, 2006.   All are welcome to join the march, which will commence from the King Kullen shopping center on 25A in Setauket at 11:00 a.m. and end at the site of the NCPG?s weekly demonstration against the war at the corner of 25A and Bennett?s Road (about .4 mile). After the procession, a vigil with guest speakers and music will take place at the corner location, 11:30 a.m. – noon. 

  

?The vigil will serve as a solemn reminder of the price paid in lives, American and Iraqis, both military and civilian,? said Dr. Juan Carlos Gallardo of NCPG.   ?We look forward to your presence on March 18, when we will gather together as a community in the hope of peace.? 

  

Since December 2002, members of the NCPG have stood weekly at their ?corner,? initially to oppose the use of force in Iraq. Since the war began on March 19, 2003, the group has called for an end to the U.S. occupation of Iraq and an immediate withdrawal of U.S. troops, respect for the constitutional rights of all persons and a reduction of the Pentagon budget in order to support funds for public health, education and other pressing needs at home, among other social and economic issues.   In addition to the weekly Saturday morning protest, the group has organized candlelight vigils and has visited the offices of local representatives to discuss their concerns.
