If the idea of a poor people's march on Washington, DC, can take on the
overall purpose of the cause of global peace, then those involved are
invited to collaborate together and join with us in the Global Peace Walk
2000 which will depart San Francisco on Martin Luther King, Jr., birthday
observance, arrive in Washington, DC, for a ceremony with perhaps a million
people to rededicate the Washington Monument as a Symbol of The Message of
Peace, and on to the United Nations for its 55th anniversary October 24,
1999.  For more information on this walk initiated in 1995 walking from New
York to San Francisco, see GEAR2000 website:
