Feb. 15th NYC Peace Rally A "Go", but March Still A "No"

The United for Peace and Justice coalition has secured a rally location for the New York city anti-war protest on February 15, announcing that "this massive, peaceful demonstration to stop the Iraq war will go forward no matter what. But in an outrageous attack on our civil liberties, Federal Judge Barbara Jones ruled ... that we may only hold a stationary rally. ... This fight is about far more than one protest march; it's about how much political space for dissent there will be in this country for the foreseeable future. We are appalled by this attack on our basic First Amendment rights, and we will continue to fight for the right to march.
Our attorneys from the New York Civil Liberties Union have filed an appeal of Judge Jones' decision."
