Biggest Opposition Demo Swears to Break Syria's Stranglehold and Lahoud's Regime
14 Mar 2005
Lebanon's opposition staged the biggest show of force in the nation's modern history from slain ex-Premier Rafik Hariri's graveside Monday, taking a thunderous oath to break Syria's ruthless stranglehold and tear apart President Lahoud's police state of "secret service phantoms."
Between 1.5 and 2 million opposition activists converged on Beirut's downtown Martyrs Square and surrounding neighborhoods to mark the lapse of one month on Hariri's assassination. They shouted slogans demanding the resignation of all security commanders in Lebanon because of dereliction of duty in stopping the assassination.

Draft and Conscientious Objector Status
Sunday, 13 March 2005
1:30 PM - 3:30 PM

Organizer: Youth Group of the Unitarian Church in Harvard

Open Meeting about the Draft and Conscientious Objector Status

Meeting with two representatives from the Traprock Peace Center.
