Fw: [casi] New Year's resolution -- Act with 'Great Fortitude'

Dear friends,

Glenn's recent message didn't include the link for further information about
the weekend of nonviolent protest at Northwood military base on the 18th /
19th January:

This weekend has been called in solidarity with the massive anti-war
demonstrations that are anticipated to be taking place in the US at this
time, as well as to mark the 12th anniversary of the start of the 1991 Gulf

Best wishes,
