Daily March Permits Sought; Protests of Iraq War, Environmental Issues and Israeli Occupation

BRUNSWICK -- Activists are negotiating with officials to stage three marches along main city streets June 8-10 to coincide with the G-8 Summit on Sea Island.

The marches will protest the war in Iraq and environmental issues and call for an end to Israeli occupation of Palestinian territory, said Lisa Fithian, co-chairwoman of New York-based National Peace and Justice Coalition.

"Everybody has been in this weird process of getting things approved. Even if I had it in writing, not until the day of [the events] would I be sure it would happen,'' Fithian said.

"We'll probably stop and urge our government to bring the troops home,'' she said.

The march would continue along Gloucester to U.S. 17 and follow that route north to the Fair World Fair.

Brunswick Mayor Brad Brown said the city will offer protesters the use of Howard Coffin Park, which is near the end of Gloucester Street as a venue for any activities. …
