Part of a national call to action by United for Peace and Justice
Thursday, July 10, 5:00 PM (at Lexington and 42st)
At 5:30: enter Grand Central Station
At 5:00 PM, everyone will gather at Lexington and 42St. At 5:30, we will enter Grand Central, spread out walking and talking casually and then at the appointed time, everyone will freeze and stand still and silent for 5 minutes.
U.S. officials say Israel is mounting a "full court press" to get the Bush administration to strike Iran's nuclear complex, CBS News reports. In The New Yorker, Seymour Hersh reports that congressional leaders agreed last year to fund a major escalation of covert operations against Iran. New York Newsday and the Seattle-Post Intelligencer warn that Congress is considering a resolution promoted by AIPAC (American Israel Public Affairs Committee) that would effectively endorse a naval blockade of Iran, an act of war.
If you have "Peace with Iran" or "We Not Be Silent" t-shirts, wear them and some will be for sale that day. There will also be "Peace with Iran" signs that can be pinned to shirts. (No signs are allowed in Grand Central Station).
Please register if you plan to attend, so that the organizers will have some idea of how many people to expect
