Congressman and Democratic presidential candidate Dennis Kucinich of Ohio visited Columbus on November 1, meeting with the Central Ohioans for Peace, students at OSU and the Ohio Green Party, before speaking at the national Natural Law Party convention. Kucinich promoted his proposal for creating a federal Department of Peace and proclaimed his opposition to the occupation of Iraq.

Kucinich also graciously allowed his “Prayer for Peace,” written at the start of the war in Iraq, to be used as the Preface of Bob Fitrakis and Harvey Wasserman’s new book, George W. Bush vs. The SuperPower of Peace. The new book can be purchased by sending in the form on the back cover of this newspaper or online at in the Online Store.
