Letter: Why we stand vigil each week

Re: “Forty-two years later, still protesting” (Sept. 21): While I appreciated the article about the ongoing Connecticut Peace Coalition New Haven vigils at Broadway, Park and Elm Streets, it omitted the most important reasons for our protest. Only once, for example, were the words “Iraq” and “Afghanistan” mentioned—and never “depleted uranium” or “drone bombings.” These issues are central to a clear understanding why we stand there Sunday after Sunday — much more so than the vignettes from my personal story.
