Protest At West Point Tonight

President Obama will be announcing a troop surge in Afghanistan tonight during a speech at West Point, our neighbors down the Hudson river. Local anti-war and activist groups will be protesting tonight and invite Vassar students to join.

"The world will be watching Obama's speech that evening and it is important to show that representatives of the majority of the American people who oppose the Afghan war are making their views known," states the Hudson Valley Activist Newsletter, one of the sponsors of the event.

There will also be a protest in New Paltz on Saturday.
