“Alternatives to War” site back online

Welcome back, Alt2War!!!

It’s great to see the Alt2War site back up and running.  These sites are a bit of work, but so important to a vital, active community and to our progress toward peace and justice.

Alternatives to War is a Corvallis-area group; a coalition of activists and organizations working to end war.

Veterans For Peace, Linus Pauling Chapter, is a proud partner of Alternatives to War.

Besides the fine history of the group at their “about” page, you can check out these resources for more info on Alternatives to War:

Corvallis Gazette-Times story from the 10-year anniversary of the daily peace vigil, running non-stop since October 7, 2001.  The only continuous daily peace vigil in the world, as far as we know.  Incredible.  You can join the vigil any day of the week, rain or shine, between five and six p.m. in front of the Benton County Courthouse, 4th St., Corvallis.

The Peace Vigil Blog:  Chronicling observations from the vigil in front of the Benton County Courthouse.

An AP story done around the eighth anniversary of the vigil.

And here’s a video from the vigil on the 10th anniversary of the start of the war on Iraq.

 

Thanks, Alt2War, for all you do for our town…and the world.
