Press conference
In front of the Federal Building, 13th & Clay, downtown Oakland, CA, 11:30 am
Speakers will include leaders from the faith community, a representative of Congresswoman Barbara Lee, County Supervisor Wilma Chan, and a representative of Mayors for Peace.

The press conference will be followed at noon by a “Living Graveyard” vigil to honor the lives lost in the Afghan and Iraq wars and draw attention to the social costs of military spending. The Living Graveyard is organized by Ecumenical Peace Institute and the East Bay Coalition to Support Self-Rule for Iraqis.
