Clergy, writers and activists will host 'An Evening of Resistance to the War in Iraq' to express their disapproval of the war in March 2003 in New York City, New York. The forum, sponsored by Riverside Church and WBAI-FM radio, is called to protest the war and to pay tribute to political leader Martin Luther King Jr., who, on April 4, 1967, exactly a year before he was assassinated, delivered at the church one of his most forceful speeches against the war in Vietnam. Of particular interest will be the remarks of the church's pastor Herb Daughtry, who was among several clergy visiting Baghdad, Iraq a few days before the war started.
