The Glens Falls Post-Star is reporting that a new anti-war group has formed at ACC in Queensbury. They’ll hold a rally on Thursday evening, featuring at least one veteran Marine who now opposes America’s continuing wars overseas.
A newly formed ACC student club, Peace Not Propaganda, organized the event.
Secretary and organizer Christopher Schmidt, a first-year student, said he hopes the event will provide an alternative viewpoint.
“A lot of soldiers go in for financial stability, and it’s kind of sad. A lot of these people don’t believe in the cause, they’re just going in for money,” he said.
The “Rally for Peace!” will be held at 12:30 pm Thursday at the Miller Auditorium in Dearlove Hall at Adirondack Community College.
