Klobuchar Peace Rally Draws Optimism for Rallying

Minneapolis, MN, June 30, 2011.
A group of dedicated peace activists rallied in front of Senator Amy Klobuchar’s office to plead for the Senator’s help in voting down war appropriations and in bringing all troops home now from Afghanistan and Iraq.
“The economy is in the can, US out of Afghanistan” said one protester. Another wondered why the U.S. keeps spending on wars when the money could do so much more good at home.

Every week there dozens of peace activist groups rallying on street corners, bridges and Congressional offices. This was but one of these vocal groups, some have been rallying at the same place for years.

Many criticize these actions for relatively small numbers and the supposed futility of the chants. The participants are there as a matter of conscience and they do believe they make a difference. In any event, the peace actions will continue.
