WASHINGTON - December 23 - What: PeaceAction Montgomery will be working to end the war in Iraq by gathering in Washington, DC, and placing toy soldiers labeled “Bring Me Home” around each of the 56 Christmas trees on the Ellipse in front of the White House. The trees are part of the season’s message of Peace on Earth. Each state and territory is sending its sons and daughters to fight in a war without reason or end. This must stop now. At the foot of each tree, we will place our wishes to bring these soldiers to safety and remind Americans that it’s time to bring the soldiers home.
