Farrakhan speaks out about war

February 23, 2003

Albany- Members of the Nation of Islam gathered at the Albany Municipal Auditorium to watch Minister Louis Farrakahn's Savior's Day Message via satellite.

Sunday, his message was one of anti-war, something he hopes all Americans, not just Muslims will take to heart.

"Those of us who are not for war can unite under this banner today and talk about war and the effects it has," says Brother Marcus Muhammad.

Albany was just one of more than 150 places where members of the Nation of Islam gathered to hear Farrakhan. This time he decided to give the message via satellite instead of live in Chicago, Illinois, in hopes more people would be able to hear his message.
