“If a man has an apartment stacked to the ceiling with newspapers we call him crazy. If a woman has a trailer house full of cats we call her nuts. But when people pathologically hoard so much cash that they impoverish the entire nation, we put them on the cover of Fortune magazine and pretend that they are role models.”

 Vermont News: CVPJ: 3000th Soldier

AnnouncementsRutland Area Residents Gather to Commemorate 3,000 US Soldiers Killed in Iraq

What: “Not One More Death, Not One More Dollar” Candlelight Vigil for Peace in Iraq
When: 6 p.m. - 7 p.m. on the day after the 3,000th U.S. military death in Iraq is announced on www.icasualties.org/oif/
Where: In front of the UU Church of Rutland, West Street, Rutland, Vermont

“Not One More Death, Not One More Dollar” events in more than 200 communities nationwide will commemorate those lost in Iraq – both military and civilian – on the day following the sad announcement that the 3,000th U.S. serviceperson has died. Coordinated nationally by the American Friends Service Committee (AFSC), a Quaker peace and social justice organization and co-recipient of the Nobel Peace Prize, the war memorial events will mourn the human cost of war, call for the troops to come home, and support funding an Iraqi-led reconstruction of the war-torn country...

So far, more U.S. lives have been lost in Iraq than in the first four years of the Vietnam War. In addition, more than 20,000 U.S. servicepersons have been seriously injured in Iraq. Estimates of Iraqi casualties vary widely, but a recent Johns Hopkins study published in The Lancet put the figure as high as 600,000 Iraqis killed.

This event is a testament to our commitment to change course in Iraq. We believe not one more Iraqi or U.S. soldier should be killed; not one more U.S. dollar should be spent sustaining war and occupation. Instead of adding more troops to Iraq, the U.S. should focus on diplomatic efforts and Iraqi-led reconstruction of their country.

Sponsored by Central Vermont Peace and Justice as coordinated nationally by the American Friends Service Committee.

For more information about this event, see the AFSC’s “Not One More Death, Not One More Dollar” web site at www.afsc.org/3000

Dear All

I am afraid that all too soon we will hear the news of the 3000th US soldier killed in Iraq. And although this may occur on or close to planned celebrations to welcome in the new year, it is critical that we gather to bear witness to this tragic milestone - 3000 US Soldiers and hundreds of thousands of Iraqis killed as a result of this illegal and immoral war and occupation.

You will see we are now calling for us to gather the DAY AFTER we hear the news of the 3000th death. We will gather for a candlelight vigil in front of the UU Church of Rutland on West Street, at 6pm, to mourn the losses and to stay true and strong to our call for an immediate end to the war and occupation.

It is so important that the rush of this holiday season does not take us away from this important action. If we all gather together, we will not only gain strength and commitment, we will also once again show the world our belief in peace and democracy. Bring your family, your friends, your neighbors. Let us be strong and be peace.

I will send an email as soon as I hear the news and finalize the date of our candlelight vigil.

Carol
Central Vermont Peace & Justice

The sad day is here. We have reached 3,000 U.S. military deaths in Iraq. Therefore we will gather for a candlelight vigil at 6pm on Monday January 1st, in front of the Unitarian Universalist Church of Rutland on West Street. We will gather to mourn the 3000 US soldiers and the hundreds of thousands of Iraqis killed as a result of this illegal and immoral war and occupation.

I will be contacting the Rutland Herald shortly to let them know of our plans. So please join us and bring your family, your friends, your neighbors.
