Lumono Kuelede Kutolela Munyika!
This blog post's title comes from my sister Tatiana, who is serving in the Peace Corps in Zambia, Africa. It is the phrase "May Peace Prevail on Earth" in the language of Citonga.
SUNDAY DECEMBER 23 - HELP VETERANS SET UP ARLINGTON WEST IN SANTA BARBARA
Veterans for Peace in SB will be setting up their Arlington West memorial just as they have every Sunday for several years now, honoring the fallen in our current wars. They anticipate being critically short of volunteers tomorrow and would like some help from 7-9am for setup and after 3pm for take-down. Arlington West takes place on the beach next to the pier.
SUNDAY DECEMBER 23 - GREET THE KUCINICH PEACE TRAIN IN VENTURA
Dennis and Elizabeth Kucinich's Peace Train has been traveling the California coast and making key stops along the way. Although Dennis' brother Perry died earlier this week (which puts the Kucinich's at funeral services in Ohio), the Peace Train rolls on with veteran campaign organizer, activist, and key aide Amy Vossbrinck filling in. The train arrives at the Ventura station at 9:58am...be there by 9:30 to join other supporters in greeting its arrival!
