Candles Burn in East Harlem

 
A candlelight vigil was held in front of the U.S. Army Recruiting Station in East Harlem this past Friday evening. Over 20 people gathered to share their experiences and grievances about the overwhelming presence of Army recruiters in Harlem and Washington Heights since US occupation in Iraq. The vigil was the first action in Harlem to demonstrate solidarity with the Iraq Moratorium, scheduled to take place on the third Friday of every month. Visit www.iraqmoratorium.com for more information of who is organizing across the nation.
