Bloomington Groups Rally Against Possible War With Iran

People attending the rally were proponents of peace, who primarily opposed the war in Iraq.

As many as 50 people gathered on the Bloomington Courthouse Square last night carrying signs and chanting “No War in Iran.” Organizers planned the peace rally now because of the 9 year anniversary of the invasion of Iraq and because it’s an election year.  Bloomington Peace Action Coalition member David Keppel helped plan the rally.  He says voters should support candidates who seek peaceful alternatives to a possible war with Iran.

“Ordinary people in our democracy, who know the horrible costs and consequences of war, need to speak up before it’s too late,” says Keppel.

In addition to the Bloomington Peace Action Coalition, the Just Peace Task Force and Women’s International League for Peace and Freedom also helped organize the protest.
