Rev. Martin Luther King Jr. by From Cliff 1066

Zuccotti Park, since renamed 'Liberty Park' by Occupy Wall St. demonstrators, has seen religious observances by all faiths. On the national holiday of the 2011 birthday of Jesus, some devout Christian anti-war activists will hold Christ Mass in the park from Midnight Christmas Eve through Christmas Day and Evening.

What is striking is that the 24 hour Christ Mass will call attention to great American disciples who acted upon Jesus' message of love and non-violence in opposing their government's and fellow Americans' wars upon small nations.

Large picture posters of Jesus will be flanked by photographs of Rev. Martin Luther King Jr., both carrying quotations from each.  A banner will honor the memory of Dorothy Day, founder of the pacifist Catholic Worker Movement.

At 12:00 noon King's world shaking sermon of anguished conscience "Beyond Vietnam - a Time t Break Silence" will be read by representatives of the King Condemned US Wars International Awareness Campaign to be echo-recited by the 'peoples microphone' technique developed in answer to the police prohibition of electric or megaphone amplification.

Thereafter a trumpet will initiate the singing of traditional Christmas Carols that herald the birth of the Prince of Peace and peace on Earth. Other events are to follow into the evening.

Nice to have celebration of Jesus as PRINCE OF PEACE
and honoring Rev. Martin Luther King Jr., who taught that US war crimes against humanity and covert CIA violence were meant to maintain "unjust overseas predatory investments, and most surely was martyred in order that the US wars in Vietnam, Laos and Cambodia could continue on for another eight years.
