Peace Calendar for November 2, 2006

THE VOTE FOR PEACE CANDIDATES.  For example, would be a
worthy use of your waking hours, in my opinion.

[Ed heads up: the Vets for Peace takes a bus each year to the School of the
Americas at Ft Benning, Georgia, where the U.S. has trained many Latin
American torturers and death squad leaders.  The bus leaves around 9 am on
Friday, 11/17, and returns late afternoon on Monday, 11/20.  Cost is $200
plus room and food.  If you want to go, call Jim Steinhagen at 612-722-1112
for more information.  At this writing, there were 8 or 9 seats available,
but you should call quickly.  The Antiwar Committee will also be taking a
bus; email them at info [at]]
