POP Protests Iraq War in Plainfield

The last Saturday of the month is the day when the Plainfield branch of the People's Organization for Progress holds an anti-war protest on East Front Street. That's the location of the Armed Forces Career Center.

According to a brochure the POP people hand out, the Newark-based organization wants to call attention to links between the Iraq war and "local concerns such as jobs, housing, healthcare, education, racism, police brutatlity and prisoner abuse."

If you are interested in getting involved, show up at 11:00am in front of 112 East Front Street on the last Saturday or attend POP's regular meeting the first Monday of the month.

The meeting is held at Agape Worship Center, 522 East Seventh Street, in Plainfield at 6:30pm.

You can also contact the Plainfield chapter at 908-801-0001
