Long Island Peace Week 2007: 4th Anniversary Events

The Suffolk Peace Network, local peace and justice groups, and the greens, inspired by the 4th Anniversary of the Iraq War and by United for Peace and Justice’s call to local action, have created an extensive calendar of peaceweek activities.

See the “read the rest of this entry” for events from March 12th, culminating with a Sunday, March 18th event in Huntington.

This calendar includes actions at congressional offices, art events, processions, vigils and demonstrations. You name, it is happening on Long Island during Peace Week. (We dare you to attend ’em all! It may just be possible!) [Editors’s note on 3/10/07 – getting less likely anyone could do all. PeaceSmiths just let us know about another event Saturday! At least no one could say they had nothing to do this week!]

Notes and art events:

You know, you could, physically, possibly attend every single one of these events. for peace in one week, without leaving the island! In so doing, you could participate in 11 rallies/events and 3 art events about peace and justice in just one week. There are only three timing challenges, which a determined demonstrator could compensate for:

1. The two congressional events start at the same time and are in different towns. You could simply chose your own congressman OR you could go to Bishop first and then Israel, because the Israel event lasts until 3pm.
2. Now, on Saturday the 17th, there is more of a challenge. The Bellport people felt committed to their ongoing vigil. Though, the North Country Peace Group felt with the anniversary, they wanted a special event in their community. If you can’t pick, the solution to the puzzle is: Between the two is a 28 minute drive (ie: Nicolls Road). Go to the Bellport vigil and stay from 11 am to 11:30. Head straight to Setauket to the end-point on Bennets Road/25A, where the event is scheduled to finish at noon. Processions never end on time anyway! [Okay, forget it, I cannot use any map to figure out how to do Lindenhurst, Bellport, and Setauket. But, I suppose someone could try?????]
3. Just got in word about the East End Women in Black Vigil from 3pm to 4pm in Sag Harbor on Sunday, and I think you could race there after Huntington…well, probably pushing it!
