At least 60 people came out to rally near Philadelphia City Hall in support of Lt. Ehren Watada on the first day of his court martial Feb 5. From high school girls to 80-year-olds, there were veterans and peaceniks, mothers and fathers who lost children in Iraq, a Black grandmother in a wheelchair, college students and more. Followed by a program featuring Lt Watada’s speech at the Vets for Peace conference (Aug ’06) and a line-up of moving and powerful speakers, including Gloria Pacis who spoke of her son Stephen Funk who spent 5 months in prison for refusing to serve. $350 was raised for the Watada defense campaign.

The principles stated in the proclamation were again pledged to except that the people came to gather their hopes, to light a candle in behalf of the Senators, and to express solidarity.
