The Orange County Cousins Club was formed recently by Orange County residents, Jews and Palestinians, who are concerned about the Israeli-Palestinian conflict. We meet monthly to educate ourselves about the issues, sponsor public educational meetings, and voice our support for peaceful solutions to the Middle East crisis. After much discussion, we adopted three principles of unity which form a basis for our activities. (These principles have also been adopted by other organizations including the New Jewish Agenda, the American-Arab Anti-Discrimination Committee, the American Friends Service Committee, the Palestine Aid Society and the Women's International League for Peace and Freedom.

The Unitarian Church of Orange County will host an informal reading of "Roe v. Wade," an original script by congregation member Ruth Shapin, at 10:30 a.m. Sunday at the church facility in Anaheim. The play describes the history behind the precedent-setting 1973 legal case, in which the U.S. Supreme Court ruled that women have a constitutional right to abortion. That issue is now back for review before the U.S. Supreme Court. "Unitarian women were very active in giving their support to the two women attorneys who first brought the case to the courts," said Rosalie Abrams, a church member and founder of the Orange County Feminist Repertory Theater.

Galvanized by the growing threat of war in the Persian Gulf, a coalition of Orange County peace activists Sunday staged a '60s-style anti-war protest, drawing about 400 people to Mile Square Park. Vietnam veterans, Palestinians, feminists and Gray Panthers--some wearing Middle Eastern scarves, tie-dyed T-shirts or camouflage hats--sat on the grass listening to folk songs and speakers urging the U.S.

She's the woman who has been standing outside the Federal Building in Santa Ana for the last two weeks, holding a "No Blood for Oil" sign and deflecting the insults hurled by passing motorists. "We do support our troops!" she steadfastly insists when they honk and shout. "We want them home alive!" Twenty years ago, she marched against the Vietnam War alongside college students her children's age.
