January 27 Charlotte Says "End The War Now!”
4:00 pm gather at MLK Jr statue in Marshall Park
Martin Luther King Blvd & S. McDowell St
Charlotte , NC
Although we wish everyone were joining us in Washington this Saturday, the purpose of this local action is to give Charlotte residents who are not able to travel to the January 27 Peace March on Washington the opportunity to express their hopes and dreams locally.
Bring signs, banners, drums, whistles etc. Have candles, lighters, flashlights ready in parked cars for ending ceremony. March up MLK Blvd , and right on Tryon to the corner of Trade and Tryon, assembling at the "Future" statue. Rally, chant, sing, readings, etc - whatever the participants want to do, to witness for peace and justice. March back to MLK statue.
Candlelight Ceremony (approx 6PM ?) - Honor the Dead, Heal the Wounded.
Bring The Troops Home Now! Fund Jobs, Education & Healthcare, Not War!
