Countdown To Withdrawal

Tuesday, August 31, 2010 - 8:00pm - 9:00pm

Join us for a Candlelight Vigil on the deadline for the withdrawal of all U.S. combat troops from Iraq. The vigil reminds our elected officials of the devastation the Iraq war has wrought and demands withdraw of all U.S. troops and military contractors, closure of all U.S. bases and repair of the damage we have done.
