Hip Hop Caucus to Protest at the White House
*Vibe.com is reporting that the religious-based Hip Hop Caucus of Washington D.C. is scheduled to hold a press conference in front of the White House today to urge the withdrawal of U.S. troops in Iraq.

We are in a time of peril in which people of morals have to stand up, said the groups CEO Rev. Lennox Yearwood. We are willing to do whatever it takesall on peaceto urge Congress and the administration to take a new course on Iraq, including a timely and responsible withdrawal of troops.

The Church of God in Christ minister also plans to present the "Declaration of Peace" to President Bush by linking arms with protesters and approaching the White House gates.

We will do whatever it takes if it calls to be arrested or bodily harmed, we must make a stand, said Yearwood.

Under the banner A Week of Action, Yearwood will continue peace efforts through Sept. 28th with vigils, fundraising dinners, workshops, peace caravans, pole planting and parades scheduled throughout 270 cities and 350 organizations nationwide.
