Drum Circle Invite

Dear Friends,

Please pass along the following information:

Please come and, if you have them, bring percussion (or any other) instruments to the demonstration for Peace on Sunday, Oct. 7th, departing from Union Square at 3:00 PM. This march is being organized by a citywide coalition of major organizations and individuals seeking an alternative to war. We expect there will also be an interfaith service at 2:30 PM. If you have ideas for chants or songs - come prepared to teach others. Bring a megaphone or hand held sound system if you have one.

On Saturday, October 6th starting at 12 noon, the Arts & Culture Workgroup (a sub group of the coalition) invites you to participate in making posters, banners, etc for the march the next day. Please bring any materials (paint, markers, crayons, paper, fabric, brushes, scissors, glue, etc.). Please ask your neighbors, friends, colleagues and local businesses to donate supplies. We will meet at CHARAS at 605 East 9th Street, (between B&C) rm. # 114. You can leave the posters, etc. for pickup the next day.

Flyers about the demonstration can be picked up at the DSA (Democratic Socialists Association) office at 180 Verick Street, (7th Ave) & Houston Sts., 12th Floor. They should be open all day from now on. Please pass them along and post them.

There will be Marshal Training on Saturday, October 6th also at the DSA offices - more details soon.

If you have access to performance or gallery venues and/or want to help produce events to creatively express ideas to support an alternative to war and help fund future efforts - please contact Judith at She will add your name to the Arts & Culture Workgroup. You will be expected to attend meetings and participate in group events. Please do not deluge Judith’s email address with information - she is already on mailing lists that give updates every few minutes and is being deluged with requests.
