    Iraq Wall - A Peace Park

    We are building a wall listing the names, ages, and hometowns of our young people dying in the Iraq War.

    There is a ban on photographing their coffins when they arrive at Dover AFB, and no high officials attend their funerals. Politicians will not note their deaths, fearing the inevitable public backlash.

    The American public opposes this war, but US policy is not determined by public opinion.

    So, our young people die. The corporations profit. We sacrifice the youth of our nation in a pre-emptive war for oil, corporate greed, and world domination.

    With every death, we will add another stone. It is our hope that public outrage grows along with the wall.

    Asheville Naked Bike Ride

    World Naked Bike Ride - Same as last year!

    Protest the occupation/war in Iraq, gas prices and the suppression of our freedoms!

    Asheville Naked Bike Ride leaves the French Broad Food Co-Op, on Biltmore Ave., SATURDAY, JUNE 11, 12:30 PM (gathering at Noon) and goes north to Asheville Pizza & Brewing on Merrimon Ave. Most of the ride is ok with a little hilly area around Chestnut St. on Merrimon. Ride As Bare As You Dare!. . . Be There or Be Square!

    Bring flyers, signs, and anything else...paint you body or whatever...

    This is a leaderless event and this is the final message to be sent.

    PASS THE WORD!! It's approximately 2 miles...much of it downhill.
