March 20th Events
- Hello Fellow OPCTJ'ers,
As many of you know, there will be a number of events happening on Saturday
March 20th in support of the world-wide day of action "The World Still Says
No to War". The events are:
10:30 a.m. - Faith, Labor and Community event at Chicago Temple at 77 W.
Madison St. in downtown Chicago (more info at http://www.peacechicago.org/)
Noon - Rally at the Water Tower with a march downtown along Michigan Ave.
finishing at Federal Plaza (more info at
3:00 p.m. - Rally & march at Scoville Park here in Oak Park (more info at
Sunday March 21, 3:00 p.m. - A "de-briefing" session at the O.P. Library,
hosted by Citizen to Citizen for anyone interested in discussing the
previous day's activities.
For those who can't make it downtown, or who choose to leave downtown in
the mid afternoon, I urge you to come out to our rally and march in Oak
Park at 3:00 (we've tried to schedule it so you can make all three
events). We will feature speakers, performers, poets and others. This
event will be just a few days after the primary, so we'll be urging all of
our attendees to start taking action now in anticipation of the November
general elections. If we, the people, want to see a change in our
country's direction, we have no choice but to work as hard as we can to
make it happen. Please join us on March 20th in saying "The World Still
Says No to War"!
