Congress recently passed a bill setting a deadline to end the war in Iraq. But President Bush is going to veto -- ignoring the will of the American people who want this war to end.

So, tomorrow, May 2 at 5:00 PM join with members from TrueMajority, Working Assets, MoveOn, United for Peace and Justice, CODEPINK, Veterans for Peace and Vietnam Veterans Against the War and more in a nationwide Emergency Veto Rally. Together, we'll stand up to the President's veto and tell Congress to do the same by keeping the withdrawal date in any future Iraq spending bills.

Meet us in front of the old Capital Building tomorrow at 5PM. Help us let Congress know we will not be silenced. Sign up at the link below...

Material and Labor Estimate for ~3300 Luminaries

Tom Baxter, VfP, Chapter #15, VVAW, Tallahassee


In the planning stages, we found no one that had done luminaries on this scale.

This is to provide guidance for future displays.

You need a few extra luminaries.

On March 19th, 2007 organizers and volunteers commemorated the 4th anniversary of the Iraq war by setting up and displaying 3400+ luminaries around the paths and walkways of Lake Ella in downtown Tallahassee.

Hundreds of Tallahasseeans and folks from the area came for a stroll and  reflection  of the toll the Iraq Invasion and Occupation has taken on our sons and daughters. Not all remained silent, as many a conversation about getting OUT of IRAQ was witnessed.

View the pictorial essay of the event starting just before dusk and extending 'til after sundown.

Both serene and sobering, the views around Lake Ella provided ample opportunity for reflection on the events of the past four years and where we as a country are headed in the future.

The event was one of thousands of protests organized nationally by United for Peace and Justice and MoveOn.org to commemorate the fourth anniversary of the Iraq Occupation.
