On Sunday, March 19th, 2006 North Fork People of Conscience will be marking the day we enter the fourth year of the Iraq war.
The event will be held from 2-5 pm. at Vail-Leavitt Music Hall, 18 Peconic Avenue in Riverhead.
The program includes the Honor the Fallen Memorial. In an ever-growing series of 120 photographic panels, each holding 18 individual lives in photographs and short biographies, the memorial remembers the more than 2,400 US soldiers who have died in Iraq and Afghanistan.
These panels will be displayed on the walls, floors and balconies of the Hall - as many as there is space for. The Memorial will be open for viewing at 1 pm.
Two Films will be shown:
"Occupation: Dreamland" about combat in Falluja prior to the bloody attempt to retake the town.
"Recruit Me", a short film by Matt Dadonna, a North Fork high school student.
Michael Harmon, a recently returned Iraqi Vet and member of Iraq Vets Against the War, who was deployed as a combat medic.
Carmen Trotta, Catholic Worker activist.
John Phillips, retired NYPD officer who was arrested for protesting in Senator Hillary Clinton’s office
Funds raised through admission tickets, merchandise and refreshments will be used entirely to create more laminated panels to reflect the mounting dead.
