*ALERT*: The Freepers (Free Republic) and Tea Baggers have announced they will be harassing the weekly peace vigil at Walter Reed Army Medical Center in front of the WRAMC sign.
From 6:30pm to 10:00pm September 11th, 2009
The Walter Reed vigil has been a long standing event, supported by union members, anti war-activists and veterans. The purpose of the vigil is to shed light on the Army practice of bringing in wounded troops at night to hide the truth about the war. Freepers have a pattern of harassing the vigil; with the large turnout expected for the Teabag/Freeper event on 9/12, the potential for severe intimidation of the vigil attendees is high.
Whatever your position on the troops, we ask you come out and lend your support. The vigil is held every Friday evening between Dahlia and Elder in front of the WRAMC sign. Signs will be provided.
