Candlelight Vigil in Regent Square
09/10/2004
Code Pink, along with other peace organizations, sponsored an emergency candlelight vigil in Frick Park Thursday night. A group of about 100 gathered on the corner of Forbes and Braddock Avenue to remember the 1000 Americans and 13,000 Iraqis who have died.

Among those present were WWII veteran Dan Bolef, who fought in the Battle of the Bulge; Regina Birchen, a Pittsburgher who was recently elected International President of the Women's International League for Peace and Freedom, and Judy Focareta of Code Pink.
