DuPage Peace Through Justice Coalition Peace Vigil

The DuPage Peace Through Justice Coalition is holding a vigil in Naperville on December 16. Please join us.
The DuPage Peace Through Justice Coalition will hold a peace vigil from 3-4 p.m. Sunday, December 16 in Naperville. The vigil will take place in front of the Naperville Post Office at the corner of Washington and Benton. The purpose of this event is to call attention to the loss of innocent lives in Afghanistan as a result of U.S. military action, to call for an end to the war, and to voice concern about the erosion of civil liberties. The coalition, which was formed in response to the terrorist attacks of September 11, held a rally in Wheaton on November 10th that was attended by over 150 people.

The purpose of the DuPage Peace Through Justice Coalition is multifaceted: to promote nonviolent solutions to terrorism, to call on members of Congress to protect civil liberties, and to provide a public forum to present alternatives to war and education on cross cultural issues. Delegates from the coalition have scheduled a meeting with the office of U.S Speaker of the House Dennis Hastert to discuss alternatives to current U.S. actions in Afghanistan. A forum will be held the last weekend of January to educate the public about the legality of the war against Afghanistan and about alternative actions the U.S. can take to end terrorism. For more information about the January forum or the December 16 vigil, please visit our web site.
