If you came out to rally for peace and justice in the last 10 years, we want you to pay tribute on September 11th, 2011. We believe this is one day the media will not ignore us! TV, radio and the print media will take stock of the wars, the occupations and the worsening economic crisis of a war economy -- everything we predicted would occur, if the Bush administration tried to solve a political problem with "smart bombs" and crude politics. info@prcsd.org ~~~
