V-Day Marches In DC To Protest War and Kick Off V-Day 2007 Reclaiming Peace
V-Day Founder Eve Ensler, V-Counsel member Jane Fonda, and V-Day activists joined thousands on Saturday to march in Washington, DC to protest the war and demand that the troops come home now.
Eve spoke at a pre-march Women’s Convergence with Jane Fonda, Mimi Kennedy, Q'orianka Kilcher, Rhea Perlman, Susan Sarandon, Congresswomen Maxine Waters and CODEPINK Co-Founders and leaders.
For V-Day, the protest resonated with the V-Day 2007 theme “Reclaiming Peace” which makes the connection between the worldwide anti-violence work of V-Day activists and our collective desire for peace and an end to armed conflicts. “We are saying that if a government supports the use of force, weapons, violence as a method of control and dominance, this models and gives license to the same kind of behavior at home,” stated V-Day Founder/Artistic Director Eve Ensler.
