Students to Participate in Protest

A group of Sarah Lawrence students will participate in a protest in Washington, D.C. on September 24th to oppose the U.S. invasion and occupation of Iraq.

Approximately 60 of these students will attend a rally on Saturday organized by United for Peace and Justice while at least 10 of the students will remain in D.C. through Monday to receive training in direct action, participate in direct action protests and lobby congressional representatives.

The students hope to garner support for a resolution that could speed the return of U.S. troops and to make it known that there is resistance to the war within this country, said one of the student organizers, Sarah Pepin.
