Coffee Talk: March against war

“A Report From the Front” will be the subject of a Coffee Talk at 7:30 p.m., Monday, Feb. 3, at the Unitarian Universalist Church, 4848 Turner St., Rockford.

Rockford Peace & Justice will hear from some of the 14 intrepid local demonstrators who went to the January march against the Iraqi war in Washington, D.C.

Two participants of the D.C. demo will show their photographic and video footage: Rockford award-winning photographer Jon McGinty will show his photos from that demonstration; Kevin Cronin (a video artist with Paul Harvey Oswald) will review his video. Stanley Campbell, director of Rockford Urban Ministries, will review the local area’s demonstrations, including the very successful picketing on East State and Alpine.

Already, volunteers have come forward to go to the New York anti-war march Feb. 15. A decision will be made whether to do a local demonstration on that same day.

Coffee Talks are sponsored by Rockford Peace and Justice Action Committee and are presented every Monday night at 7:30 p.m. The coffee is provided. The discussions are free and open to everyone, and all are invited to participate.

For information, call Stanley Campbell at (815) 964-7111.
