Concerned that the Bush administration has stepped up its threats against Iran, peace groups, including the Martha’s Vineyard Peace Council, are holding No War on Iran rallies on Saturday, August 2. The Vineyard rally will be at Five Corners at 1 p.m.

Organizer Chris Fried notes that on July 22, Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice warned that Iran had two weeks to halt its development of nuclear energy or face further “punitive measures.” That deadline will expire on Tuesday, August 5.

For details, call Mr. Fried at 508-693-7741.
