Baltimore City Council Passes Resolution Against War with Iraq

by Kay Dellinger

The Baltimore City Council passed Resolution 02-0944, opposing war with Iraq, on Monday, December 9 by a vote of 18 for it, and one abstention. (Keiffer Mitchell abstained.) The vote was taken at the regular Monday meeting of the City Council.

The City Council's Judiciary and Legislative Investigations Committee held a public hearing on the resolution on November 20. Every speaker at that hearing supported the Resolution. [See story.]

The City Council vote against war took place on the day of Phil Berrigan's funeral. [See story.] Berrigan, sometimes called "Baltimore's apostle of peace," was considered by many peace activists to have been "the conscience of the country."
