Allen Cooper, a well-known social justice activist, passed away earlier this month. Allen was the Green Party candidate for State House of Representatives in 2000 for District 12 in Albu(r)querque and received 8% of the vote. For a long time, Allen was the guy with the megaphone at many a peace action. A public memorial will take place on September 24, from 4:00 p. m. to 8:00 p. m. at the ABQ Center for Peace and Justice. Rest well.
