Peace coalition to protest debate

Here's what I think is the first publicly announced protest of the Belmont debate, to be held by the Nashville Peace Coalition.

"The Nashville Peace Coalition has issued a call today for a Regional Demonstration for Peace and Real Human Priorities on October 7, 2008 in Hillsboro Village at 21st Ave. So and Blakemore, less than one mile from the Presidential Candidate's Debate that evening. The demonstration is scheduled to take place from 4pm to 7pm and organizers say it will be a peaceful and non-violent expression of activists concerns that war in Iraq is not extended into the next Presidential administration. Other concerns expressed by the organizers include bringing the troops home from Afghanistan and no military strikes against Iran."

Chris Lugo, who ran for the U.S. Senate under the Green Party in 2006 and is running again this year, is helping spearhead the protest.
