for rally

Contributing Writer

Expressing a desire to “work from
anger to activism," about 400 dem-
onstrators gathered at the Vietnam
Memorial in Phoenix Park yesterday
afternoon to protest US. military in-
volvement in the Persian Gulf.

The central focus of the event,
“Before Time Runs Out —— Give
Peace a Chance,” was a ceremony in
which old, but usable, shoes were
piled in front of the Vietnam Memo-
rial. The shoes were to symbolize
the thousands of lives that could be
lost in the event of a war in the gulf,
said Richard Mitchell, co-chair for
the rally. The shoes were donated to
the homeless.

Three speakers addressed the
crowd after the ceremony to share
their thoughts on the Persian Gulf
crisis. The speakers were Msiba
Ann Grundy, a teacher-counselor
for the Central Kentucky Re—
education Program and an African—
Ameriean community leader; Amy
Struss. a Berea College student who
served six years in the US. Air
Force and now is in the Inactive Air
Force Reserve: and Rabbi Eric Sla-
ton of ()liavay Zion Synagogue.
