This space is dedicated to the proposition that we need to know the history of the struggles on the left and of earlier progressive movements here and world-wide. If we can learn from the mistakes made in the past (as well as what went right) we can move forward in the future to create a more just and equitable society. We will be reviewing books, CDs, and movies we believe everyone needs to read, hear and look at as well as making commentary from time to time. Greg Green, site manager
Since the first day this parade was announced, Veterans For Peace members have been organizing to stop this parade. Yesterday, one day after the No Trump Military Parade coalition, of which Veterans For Peace is a founding member, announced that 187 organizations would be joining together to protest the parade, including hundreds of veterans, our hard work paid off!
However, we can’t stop until “postponement” turns to CANCELED!
Protest actions being planned for D.C. will go ahead, and Veterans For Peace will continue with the planning of their silent memorial march to Reclaim Armistice Day in Washington D.C. Veterans and military family members will lead a solemn procession among the various war memorials on the mall on November 11 to mark the 100th anniversary of the Armistice that ended the horrible carnage of World War I.
Street theater will dramatize the costs of war and challenge the manipulation of support for soldiers, veterans and war dead to prepare the public for rich men's wars.
