Antiwar Christians set March 16 protest: March on the White House

March 6, 2007

A wide array of Christian peace groups will march on the White House—and perhaps get arrested— March 16 to protest the U.S. military escalation in Iraq.

The event will include a worship service at the National Cathedral, then a candlelight procession to the White House and acts of nonviolent civil disobedience at the executive mansion.

Groups involved include Sojourners/Call to Renewal and Baptist, Lutheran, Catholic and Pentecostal peace fellowships. –Associated Baptist Press
