[haw-info] HAW Notes (Oct. 2 "One Nation" march; links to recent articles of interest)

To members and friends of Historians Against the War,

 

The HAW Steering Committee has joined the list of endorsers of the "One Nation Working Together" march in Washington, DC on Saturday, October 2.  We may send out a separate message about this march, but in any case, for those interested, and able to take part, the web site for the march is at http://www.onenationworkingtogether.org/content/main.  A peace contingent, jointly sponsored by a great many antiwar groups, will assemble at 10:30 am at 14th & Constitution Ave NW, closest to the Federal Triangle Metro; see http://www.onenationforpeace.org.
