There is an important history to the walk that you need to know, however: It started as a Muslim-Jewish rapprochement event, and of necessity avoided political slogans, including direct references to the Middle East. The idea was to find commonalities, not sources of contention. It continues in that vein and is avowedly non-political.
Interpreter for the deaf repeats what our speakers are saying
Signs for PEACE are welcome; anti-war signs are not. It is a walk FOR Peace, not against anything, and not an opportunity to oppose the Iraq War per se (though undoubtedly most participants would agree with that point of view).
We are adding this year the notion of LOCAL PEACE: PEACE IN THE STREETS, or, in the words of a NIM inititaive, INCREASE THE PEACE. Details will follow, and everyone is invited to join.
