War on Iran?
Views from Iran, Israel & U.S.

Rudy Simons will be our speaker at our meeting on

Tuesday, April 10, 2012, 7:00 pm
at Unity of Livonia (28660 Five Mile Rd)

How do Iranians, Israelis and Americans feel about the prospect of war with Iran?

Come to the April Citizens for Peace meeting to hear the three perspectives from Rudy Simons, a well-known, long time local peace activist. Rudy has traveled to Iran, Israel and Palestine four times in the last six years with the Fellowship of Reconciliation. He will share his insight into the political mood of Iran and its people. Rudy provides viewpoints unavailable to the majority of Americans since he is one of a few U.S. citizens who has traveled throughout Iran.

A group discussion will follow his talk.

All are welcome to attend.
