QC Area Progressive Group offering trip to September DC Anti-war rally
Progressive Action for the Common Good, a progressive activist group, is organizing a bus trip to DC for the Anti-War rally planned by A.N.S.W.E.R. and United for Peace and Justice for Saturday, Sept 24.
They are chartering a bus to leave Friday Sept 23rd between noon and 2:00 p.m. The bus will make stops for meals and breaks, with participants sleeping on the bus overnight as it makes its way to DC, arriving at the National Mall early Saturday morning in time for the planned start of the rally and march at 11:00 a.m. Saturday Sept 24th.
The trip will then depart sometime Saturday evening and drive back to the Quad Cities arriving Sunday afternoon.
They already have a dozen or more people signed up, and several people who can't make the trip have made donations to help defer the cost for those who can. They need to hear from those who are interested soon so they can make the appropriate arrangements. Costs, which depend on the amount of donations they receive, will run around $125 per person.
If you're interested in going and helping to show the nation and the world the level of dissatisfaction with Bush's invasion and occupation, please get in touch soon to book a spot on this trip.
To sign up, donate towards helping defray the costs, or for more information, contact Cathy Bolkcom at firstname.lastname@example.org (click to e-mail)
This is planned to be the largest march yet in opposition to the Bush war policy.
