Taking the 4th

Tomorrow marks the 4th anniversary of the War in Iraq.

Tonight (Monday 3/19) there will be a candlelight vigil sponsored by MoveOn held on the corner of Washington and Linn St. in Iowa City at 6:45 pm and tomorrow on the Pentacrest, March for Peace will begin at 5 p.m. Organizers expect hundreds of University of Iowa students and area residents to attend. The rally for peace includes music by Illinois John Fever and speaker Frank Cordaro, a former Catholic priest who has served more than three years in federal prison for non- violent civil disobedience.
