SPC Reads Iraq War Dead Names


April 8, 2005:
In Columbus Circle, the Syracuse Peace Council Reads the Names of Those Who Have Died in Iraq.

Message From: Neighbors of the Onondaga Nation (NOON)

"Neighbors of the Onondaga Nation has been pleased at the overwhelmingly positive response thus far to the Land Rights Action initiated by the Onondaga Nation. The Nation has done a splendid job of articulating their efforts to achieve justice for their community and work with all of us to clean up our contaminated environment.

Our task is to continue to educate our community and when the time comes to advocate for a fair resolution of their claim.

To help people keep in touch, we have set up an email "announcements" list which will involve no more than a couple of emails per week about issues, events and information related to the Onondaga Nation.

You can sign up for it at the bottom of NOON's webpage: www.peacecouncil.net/noon

Things You Can Do Now:

* Speak up in conversations with friends, co-workers, neighbors about
the issue, calming fears and providing accurate information.

* Encourage people to sign the "Statement of Support
for the Onondaga People" available on the website to sign on or to
download to circulate.

* Arrange for representatives of NOON to come speak with your faith
community group, neighborhood organization or a house party.

* Check out SPC-TV this coming Sunday night at 8 pm (Channel 98
Time Warner Cable--Syracuse Area)for a show about
the Onondaga Nation Land Rights Action, including:
1. "Brighten the Chain" a short video produced by the Onondaga Nation
2. A condensed program from "NEIGHBOR TO NEIGHBOR, NATION TO NATION: WATER CONNECTS US ALL"
3. A news conference of Neighbors of the Onondaga Nation (NOON) announcing support for the Onondaga Land Rights Action (March 15, 2005)
