Peace group hosts meeting
The Roaring Fork Peace Coalition is making a New Year’s resolution to renew our efforts to create a more peaceful world by bringing attention to U.S. policies that lead to terrorism and war.
For most of the past two years, the RFPC has conducted public demonstrations, free video presentations, sponsored speakers, published newspaper ads and written letters to the editor, because we believe America has been put in grave danger by government policies that favor corporate interests. We also feel that policies such as the Patriot Act threaten our civil rights and the very existence of American freedom.
Democracy only works with the active participation of an informed public, so the RFPC, along with Colorado Communities for Justice and Peace, will mount a statewide campaign to encourage Colorado’s citizens to vote smart in the November presidential election.

We invite any community members who seek positive nonviolent solutions to world conflict to attend the next meeting of Colorado Communities for Justice and Peace to be held in Aspen this Saturday, Jan. 24, 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. at Aspen Community Church, 200 E. Bleeker. There will be community networking and a potluck from 4 to 6:30 p.m. Call 618-5475 for info or to volunteer goods or services.
“Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed citizens can change the world. Indeed, it’s the only thing that ever has.” ” Margaret Mead.
