Celebration of Macy Morse

5:00 pm - 5:00 pm @ Portsmouth

COURTESY PHOTO
Smiling even while being arrested, longtime activist Macy Morse, who died last week at age 98, is taken into custody while protesting the Iraq war at then-U.S. Rep. Jeb Bradley’s office in Dover.

Many of you have likely heard about this special upcoming event, but we wanted to be sure to get the details out to everyone.  As Macy would want, it begins with a peace vigil and tribute at the same place and time many of us gathered for so many years after the onset of the post-9/11 wars – at 5 PM on Friday, Oct. 18th in Portsmouth’s Market Square.  If you knew Macy, were inspired by her work or are relatively new to the movement, please join us then!

Friday, October 18th. Begin gathering in Market Square Portsmouth at 5:00 PM, songs, shared memories and tributes start 5:30, Leftist Marching Band to play at 6:15 and lead us over to South Church on State Street for refreshments and socializing. Signs, buttons…all welcome
