Excerpts from Thea Paneth article about protest: Forty United for Justice with Peace activists stood out in Harvard Square in a hastily-arranged vigil to oppose any renewed attacks by the U.S. on Iraq. Iraq has been in the news again, as conflict widens across the Middle East. June-Ruth Canonico from Merrimack Valley People for Peace led us in singing “Last Night I Had the Strangest Dream,” a great anti-war song, and a singer passing through led a song. We also heard some poetry from Eric Wasileski of the Warrior Writers, a group of antiwar veterans who gather to read their poetry and writings, and some of Father Daniel Berrigan’s poems (recited from memory).
