Make Noise Where You Stand:
Anti-War Voices to be Heard at WKU

Bowling Green, KY - April 23, 2007
A growing group of students, faculty members, and community
members who are dissatisfied about the Iraq war are gearing up to make
their voices heard. The war in Iraq is seen as an illegal occupation
by many citizens and the international community. Students and
community members are invited to gather on the North lawn of the
Downing University Center (DUC) to demonstrate against the war on
Monday, April 23, 2007. The demonstration will begin at 12:00 pm with
no specific ending time. It will be a non-violent, peaceful
assembly. Our main intention is to raise local awareness of the
opposition to the war, as well as give a platform for community
members to let their voices be heard. The demonstration is being
sponsored not by an official organization but rather by a group of
concerned citizens uniting together.
The organizers feel it is time to let our government know that
we are unhappy with the current war situation. Rather than driving to
Washington D.C., we wish to make our voices heard from our own
community. "Our only hope today lies in our ability to recapture the
revolutionary spirit and go into a sometimes hostile world declaring
eternal hostility to poverty, racism, and militarism." -Martin Luther
King, Jr.
