Bringing the memory of those killed in Iraq to the White House, on
the first anniversary of the continuing war...
Dover to D.C. Memorial Procession
A trail of mourning and truth to honor those
killed and wounded in Iraq, with legal processions to be followed by
nonviolent direct action at the White House
Sunday, March 14 - Monday, March 15
The Bush Administration refuses to acknowledge those being killed
and wounded by war in Iraq..
In order to acknowledge the true toll of this war, starting at Dover
Air Force Base in Delaware, where the war dead arrive, this memorial
procession will honor our fallen brothers and sisters, sons and
daughters, wives, husbands, mothers, fathers and friends, along with
Iraqis and the increasing number of people from other countries who
have been killed and wounded, while delivering our call to end the
violence to the nation's capital.
Sunday, March 14 - Gather at Camden Friends Meetinghouse in Dover at
12:30pm, for a brief service followed by a memorial procession to
the gates of Dover Air Force Base. Following a ceremony at the base,
a caravan will proceed to Washington DC .
Monday, March 15 - Gathering and observances at 9:00 a.m. at Walter
Reed Army Hospital in Washington, DC, current residence of many U.S.
servicemen and women wounded in Iraq, followed by memorial
procession to White House, arriving at Farragut Square at 2:00 p.m.
We will then proceed to the White House to speak the names of those
who have died in Iraq; those so moved will engage in an act of
nonviolent resistance as we deliver our memorial.
Please plan to join us on March 14 and 15, to honor those killed and
wounded in Iraq , and to say no to war.
