Peace Rally set Friday at courthouse
Tuesday, May 1, 2007
Local organizers have announced plans for a "peace rally" set to take place at 4:30 p.m. Friday, May 4 on the courthouse lawn in Greencastle.
One of the organizers of the event, Margo Bode said the event has been titled Circle the Square for Peace and will call for the end to the war in Iraq.
"We just want to remind our government that peace is what we want," Bode said.
Bode said she hopes there will be enough people in attendance to make a circle around the courthouse.
The same group began last November by meeting each Thursday afternoon on the south lawn of the courthouse. Bode said those meetings will continue as well.
