The Coalition for Peace at Southampton College is staging a CLASS WALK-OUT/ PEACE TEACH-IN at the Windmill on the Southampton College campus from 2 to 5 p.m. on Monday, March 31st. After a series of speakers, they will be marching into Southampton Village in support of peace.

The organizer of the protest, Josh Perl, is an adjunct professor at the college. He was also involved in the Peace Crane Project. Along with members of the Humanist Club, he helped to fold over 500 paper cranes in a visual demonstration of their wish for world peace. The cranes are on display in the lobby of the Fine Arts building.
