March for peace

Thank you for printing the letter from Sue Gray, who is in Iraq as a member of a Christian Peacemaker Team. Having read her communications from Iraq, I am touched by how lovingly Iraqis are treating her.

If you want to help prevent the deaths of Iraqi citizens and U.S. soldiers, consider going to the Jan. 18 March on Washington to Stop Bush’s War on Iraq.

In opposition to the massive build-up of military personnel and equipment in the Persian Gulf for a war with Iraq, people will meet at the west side of the Capitol, Washington, D.C., at 11 a.m., and march to the Navy yard. (Defense Secretary Rumsfeld has signed orders to double the 50,000 troops in the Gulf in the next few weeks.)

Anyone wishing to see the results of bombing Iraq during Operation Desert Storm in 1991, is welcome to view my copy of of the 28-minute video, “Nowhere to Hide.” It is a documentary of what it was like on the ground during allied bombing of Iraq in February 1991. To see it, contact krahe@sopris.net. It was sad to see all the destruction and killing.

For information on the march, contact the organizers at http://www.internationalANSWER.org. They list Colorado groups who are going.
