Grandmothers Against the War

At our October 19, 2005, vigil two days after our arrest and jailing when we tried to enlist at the Times Square Recruiting Center (left to right: Miriam Poser, Joan Wile, Cindy Sheehan, unknown, Joan Kaye and Maggie Vall)


Grandmothers Against the War, founded in November 2003, holds a peace vigil every Wednesday in front of Rockefeller Center from 4:30 PM to 5:30 PM. The highly publicized group has been demanding an immediate withdrawal of troops from Iraq. Grandmothers Against the War also participates regularly in other anti-war activities, including the arrest and jailing at the Times Square Recruiting Center when they tried to enlist; a trek from New York to Washington over a 10-day period; a trip to Berlin to speak and sing to peace groups, and performances of Joan’s original song material, their Granny Chorus line dance, a comedy monologue as Barbara Bush, and dramatic monologues by famed actress granny, Vinie Burrows.

Please contact Joan Wile to become involved:
