Flagstaff Hill, Oakland, across from Phipps Conservatory
Schenley Drive, Pittsburgh, PA 15213
Date and Time To Be Announced
Bring a candle, your family and friends, and a sign if you wish. The site is a large hill, possibly difficult to maneuver with a wheelchair, but with sidewalk right in front of it. The goal is a silent, respectful recognition of the loss of 2000 American - and countless Iraqi - lives without adequate justification, without a plan, without regard for their value or the pain of those they leave behind. We will take a stand against the carnage for ourselves and countless other Americans, as more and more of us wake up to the truth: the Bush administration used manipulation and lies to get us into this war and send these people to their death, and it's up to us to say NO MORE.
