At Library Park on Hennepin and Lagoon on Saturday, Dec. 18, Peace activists rallied for the end of the Afghan War. The WAMM (Women Against Military Madness) singers — now known as the Counter Propaganda Singers — energized the rally with new versions of old Christmas songs. Coleen Rowley and four others that had been arrested in a demonstration at the White House last Thursday scurried back to lift the spirits. One Burnsville woman, not present at this rally, was celebrating her first arrest as a result of the Washington event.
