On the first anniversary of the continuing war in Iraq...


Dover to D.C. Memorial Procession

A trail of mourning and truth to honor those beginnings on Sunday March 14 near Dover, where the caskets come in but no press or

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, 2004



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 Iraqi civilians and the increasing number of people from other countries who have been killed and wounded in Iraq, while delivering our call to end the violence to the nations 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 a rally in Baltimore, Maryland, and then on to Washington DC.

Monday, March 15 - Gathering and observances 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. At the White House, those so moved will deliver our memorial message and call to the end the war to the Bush Administration, risking arrest in an act of nonviolent civil disobedience if necessary.



Please plan to join us on March 14 and 15, to honor those killed and wounded in Iraq, and to say no to war.
