The flash movie produced for this year's MLK Holiday by BushFlash.com features excerpts from Dr. King's 1967 Vietnam War speech, and ends with an appeal to take part in the March 20 Global Day of Protest on the one-year anniversary of the Iraq War
United for Peace and Justice urges you to honor the legacy of Dr. King by taking part in educational events, cultural activities and protests during the MLK Holiday weekend. This can be a critically important time for the antiwar movement to link the struggle against empire abroad with the fight for racial and economic justice at home, to strengthen ties with other movements, and in many cases to build new relationships. Here's some suggestions.
Some quotes from Dr. King:
Peace is not merely a distant goal that we seek, but a means by which we arrive at that goal.
