Seattle Downtown Peace Vigil

CNV Seattle,WA 2015

By Leonard Eiger

Members of the Ground Zero Center for Nonviolent Action supported the weekly Seattle Downtown Peace Vigil during the Campaign Nonviolence Week of Actions. Joe Colgan, who lost his own son Lt. Ben Colgan, in Baghdad, Iraq, November 1, 2003, began these weekly vigils in 2006 and has faithfully, with the help of many volunteers, set it up each Tuesday in front of the Henry M. Jackson Federal Building in Seattle from 11:00AM to 1:00PM.

At noon some of the 17 participants stood before a display of all (167) of the soldiers from Washington state who have died in Iraq and Afghanistan, and read each name. After each name was read other participants rang bells.

The vigil protests the funding of our unjust wars and demands the return of all our troops. See photos from this event below.
