Oct 27 Peace Rally Postponed

Due to the fires, the scheduled "Fund Healthcare, Not Warfare" rally and march in Downtown San Diego have been cancelled. You can find the entire announcement on the San Diego Coalition for Peace and Justice website.

We decided, finally, that now was not the time for such a public discussion but rather a time for coming together in support of those most impacted by the fire's destruction.

With this in mind, we would like to urge each and every person who planned to come to the demonstration this Saturday to volunteer and/or contribute to relief efforts - especially for those who find themselves outside of the traditional safety net. Suggestions include helping the Border Angels and the Displaced Farm Worker Drive.

Last I heard, donations were being taken at Chicano Park for these organizations. I'm checking to see if that drive is on-going, and will update you with any more information about these efforts to assist as soon as I receive it.

Also, there is still a rally for this Saturday that is scheduled to go on as planned in the Los Angeles ares. For more details: United for Peace and Justice.

(update) I've been told they're still collecting donations at Chicano Park that will be used to assist migrant farmworkers. I'll keep working on getting more details.
