The anniversary is looming

The fifth anniversary of the start of the Iraq War is approaching, and there are some protests planned. A reader forwarded me a string of e-mails from a local anarchist group, and there’s a protest planned for 12:30 p.m. Saturday at the Tacoma Mall office building, where there are several military recruiting offices.

Across town that afternoon, Operation Homecoming will be at Theatre on the Square. The Broadway Center For The Performing Arts invites attendees to "come hear the stories from Operation Homecoming and take part in a dialogue that will go beyond the headlines and politics, and focus on individual experiences. We will invite local service men and women, and their families to participate with new writings and in conversation."
