Anti-War Activists Celebrate 40th Anniversary

FAYETTEVILLE, N.C. -- North Carolina's Quaker House is marking its 40th anniversary with a rally featuring an attorney for Guantanamo detainees and a former member of the Special Forces.

Winston-Salem attorney Robert Elliot is talking Saturday about his work with the American Civil Liberties Union representing Guantanamo detainees.

"Sex & War" author and U.S. Army veteran Stan Goff is expected to discuss Afghanistan.

The rally will also feature speeches from peace activists.

Quaker House was founded in 1969.

It has been instrumental since the Vietnam War in organizing anti-war rallies and providing soldiers and other troops with information on getting out of the military.
