Help needed for anti-war exhibit

The American Friends Service Committee is seeking volunteers to help with the San Francisco portion of its “Eyes Wide Open” peace exhibit Tuesday, May 29 in San Francisco. The widely acclaimed exhibit features a pair of boots honoring each U.S. military casualty.

Organizers noted that 355 Californians, 3,438 Americans, and more than 600,000 Iraqis have died to date.

Interested people should meet at 7 a.m. Tuesday at the Federal Building, 455 Golden Gate Avenue, to help build the display. Teams of four to six people are also needed to monitor the display and hold signs during the day. Clean-up crews also are needed to pack up the boots and get them back to the Quaker meetinghouse.

There will be a news conference at 10 a.m. with Ann Roesler of Military Families Speak Out and others. For more information, e-mail sschwartz@afsc.org.
