Veterans for Peace, Smedley Butler Brigade and Samantha Smith chapter, recently held an "eat-in" to support a Lowell restaurant run by a family of Iraqis after someone lobbed a 20-pound rock through the window. The Babylon Restaurant, at 25 Merrimack St., was full to overflowing by diners who wanted to show their support for the owners and for Lowell as a welcoming place for all. 

Pat Scanlon, chair of the Smedley Butler Brigade, is featured in the video below. 

The food, say diners, is excellent.
