[img_assist|nid=1661|title=|desc=|link=none|align=right|width=200|height=72]On Friday, Iraq Moratorium #3, will be observed in hundreds of events across the country. At least 10 actions to call for an end to the war are planned in Wisconsin, although not all are listed on the national website.

If you can't attend one of these, or public protest isn't your thing, consider taking some individual action, even if it's only wearing a button or putting a sign in your window. Doing something beats doing nothing.
