Grandmothers Against the War—no strangers to non-violent protest at the Times Square Recruiting Center— denounced this morning’s bombing and announced a Knit-in For Peace at the recruiting center island on March 19 to commemorate the end of five years since the bombing of Baghdad.
“The grannies are an organization devoted to peace, and, therefore, abhor violent and perilous acts such as that perpetrated by unknown persons in Times Square this morning. We are hereby calling for an immediate end to any further destructive deeds of that nature” the group said in a statement.
Listen to your grandmother. She knows!
