Rebuilding the anti-war movement

Renegades for Peace, a student group at Illinois Wesleyan, and the Bloomington-Normal Citizens for Peace and Justice (BNCPJ) hosted a panel forum on different perspectives against the current wars and occupations. The event was a huge success, bringing at least 30 people to discuss their opposition to the Afghanistan war, including a contingent from Peoria. The discussion was particularly interesting in that the participants were from both the left and right, all who converged on their opposition to American military interventions.

Prior to the event we had our monthly picketing against the wars and occupations. BNCPJ converges every first Thursday of the month at 5:30 pm, in front of the Bloomington Center for the Performing Arts, downtown on Main Street.
