The March 19 Mobilization group is presently planning for a week of
anti-war events in the state capitol during March 12 19 and seeks
your suggestions and participation. While we do not desire to dilute
any local actions during this or any other time, we are trying to
consolidate the anti-war message leading up to the third anniversary
of the invasion of Iraq on Sunday March 19. We are also happy to be
able to do this in Jeb's temporary home.
This group was formed on January 20th of this year to help end the
isolation of like-minded individuals and to amplify our anti-war
position and voice. In this way we hope to make a more meaningful
statement about war in general and the invasion of Iraq in particular.
Our group is gaining membership from individuals and representatives
of other groups from around Florida, including CodePink, and we would
like to extend this invitation for you to join with us.
We are asking that each represented group hold some form of protest
or demonstration during the week and then join together at the old
state capitol building on Saturday, March 18th for a mass
demonstration and, if possible, a memorial service on Sunday. We are
not interested in telling you what to say or how to get your anti-war
message out but will be glad to help in any way we can.
Among the events already in the works is a free film festival
featuring anti-war films each night from March 12 18 and the
previously mentioned memorial service. Our local college and
university students and groups they represent are participating with
us as well.
You may visit our site and join our group if you wish by going to
and clicking the Join This
Group Button or you may send me an email directly to
and ask to be sent an invitation or for more
information about our group and its efforts.. All who seek to join
will be approved and the messages are moderated only to the extent
that they are off topic or contrary to our planning activities. If
you will indicate your affiliation with CodePink in your request, we
will see that our local CodePink representative is made aware of your
participation and will be asked to contact you to see what can be
done to help you participate with us.
We hope you will join us and lend your creativity and voice to ours
as we pass this terrible milestone together.
In solidarity and peace,
March 19 Mobilization
