President Obama will be holding a rally this Saturday to campaign for candidates of the Democratic Party. This will be an important opportunity to campaign against the endless wars and occupations and in defense of human rights for all and an end to the Raids.
Gather out in front of the rally with signs and posters.
Supporters of the Stop the Wars Coalition will be marching over to the Hynes from a protest down the street at the the Old South Church in opposition to an appearance by Alan Dershowitz and his campaign in support of the subjugation of the Palestinian people.

Massachusetts Peace Action Annual Meeting
Together we've accomplished a lot this year: U.S. troops out of Iraq, the military budget on the table for real, new alliances. But we have much to do in 2012, with Afghanistan, Korea, Iran, Senate and House elections, and the urgent need to move the money from military to domestic spending.
Each and all of us, together, can make a difference. Join two inspiring women, a scholar and an activist, to learn how.
Neta Crawford, co-director of Brown University’s Cost of War Project, will talk about the tragedy of American militarism and the cost in lives and dollars of the Iraq and Afghanistan wars.
Judith LeBlanc, National Organizer for Peace Action, will update us on Peace Action’s national campaign to Move the Money from the military to human needs and discuss building coalitions with human service, labor, and community groups.
