Lancaster, PA – May 15, 2007. The Lancaster chapter of Students for a Democratic Society (SDS) is throwing an Anti-war Shindig on May 19th at the corner of King & Queen Sts. (Penn Square) from 12 noon – 1:30 pm
The event is part of a nationwide effort to step up pressure to end the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan after Bush’s veto of the timetable for withdrawal. Local students and residents will demonstrate against continued funding of the war, and the administration’s unwillingness to listen to the opinions of the majority of Americans. Banners, signs, and other forms of expression will be used to show opposition to the war.
In addition, the event will host live entertainment. Local dance-rock band, The Repercussions, will perform with special guests from 12 noon – 1pm. An organized drum circle, led by professional percussionist Tim Riggs, will run from 1:00-1:30 pm.
The Shindig is a community event, and everyone is encouraged to join in. Participants are welcomed and encouraged to bring their own signs, banners, instruments and anything else to help make their voices heard.
