Feb 15: New York City Rally and March Permit Status
- New York City Rally and March Permit Status

I remember similar events from the old anti-war days during the Vietnamese

I hope people from all over the East Coast and mid-West plan on attending.
I will keep people informed of how the Federal appeal turns out.
