Oakland Protest to Celebrate Right to Not Fight WarsSan Francisco Bay Area 13 May 2006 23:39 GMT
For over 20 years, May 15th has been celebrated as International Conscientious Objectors Day. Each year activities are focused in a country where war objectors are being harassed or persecuted. This year the international focus is on the United States' denial of the right of soldiers to object. Coordinated activities are being planned in the U.S. in New York, Washington DC, and the SF Bay Area.
