"I want to add my voice to those of Veterans For Peace in calling for the dismantling our war for profit economy, and working to end all wars," says Jackson Browne. "I recommend reading their position statement in response to the Trump Military budget. We need to follow VFP's courageous and principled example in calling for an end to our country's insane and inhumane military expansion."

VFP  Led March

The March will take off from the Palmer House around 12 Noon on Sunday, August 13, proceed for about 35 minutes to Trump Tower.

We will slowly march around the Tower, and then proceed for about two minutes to the Veterans Memorial, where everyone will be able to sit for 5-7 minute of speakers.

We will then proceed to the Headquarters of the Chicago Public Schools (our nation’s most militarized school system) for another 5-7 minutes of speakers.
For about two minutes, we will march back to the Palmer House and disperse.

The March has been plotted out to last no more than 80 minutes, and should conclude around 1:20 pm.

Chicago is seeking VFP volunteers to bring signs and to serve as marshals.

More information to come.
