Anti-War Rally in NYC on Feb 15th

posted by Jason Kottke   Feb 14, 2003

If you’re against the US going to war against Iraq and in NYC tomorrow, you might want to show your support at the Anti-War Rally. The rally starts at noon on 1st Ave stretching north from 49th street (approx. here near the Dag Hammarskjold Plaza).

You might notice that this is a rally and not a march. NYC rejected a request from the organizers to hold a march past the United Nations complex. I can understand both sides of the issue, but I get uncomfortable when the government tells people where and when they can assemble, march, and protest. I hope they march anyway, permit or no.
