Join Tulsa Peace Fellowship

For this month's anti-war demo, we were joined by Reggie Cervantes (9/11 Rescue Worker featured in Michael Moore’s “Sicko”) from Oklahoma City. Reggie Cervantes is a 9/11 rescue worker survivor who traveled to Cuba with Michael Moore to receive medical care not accessible in the U.S., due to the lack of government-funded universally-accessible health care in this country. Reggie has lived in Oklahoma since 2002 and is terminally ill with lung cancer, likely related to her rescue efforts at the Twin Towers. She joined the Tulsa Peace Fellowship today in order to rally for “Healthcare Not Warfare” as a real hero who knows first hand the real need for healthcare reform. Reggie was also interviewed on KJRS radio today. Details on broadcast time TBA.

A special thank you to Reggie and her family for attending.

We were also joined by a Chinese exchange student, today, who was happy to be exercising the right to free speech for the first time in his life. "Mike" (as he is called here) hails from Jangxi in central China. Definitely our longest long-distance visitor ever to attend our humble anti-war demonstration, at the corner of 41st & Yale (ongoing since 2002).

A special thank you to him too.

Finally, a thank you to all Tulsans who voiced their support, gave a peace sign, or honked for peace this month. We especially appreciated the "ROCK ON!" from one or two passers-by this month.
