Organizers with the Ecumenical Peace Institute and other local organizations held a vigil where people lie on the city sidewalk outside of the Federal Building property line in Oakland,California covered with white sheets representing the dead in Iraq and other wars in the west Asia region.

Others read the names of the dead of Iraq, and California soldiers, and more recently Palestinians in Gaza last summer and the ongoing dead African Americans at the hands of local police.

If others would like to take part, this is a recurring legal vigil which takes place each third Monday from noon to one in front of the Oakland (CA) Federal Building. Learn more here.
