Armistice Day for Peace
November 11, 2017 @ 12:00 pm - 3:00 pm
Put Your Marching Sneakers On… Armistice Day For Peace Saturday November 11-Noon
It is that time of year again. Every year for over a decade we have had our Armistice Peace March behind the “official” Veterans Day parade in Boston. We continue that tradition this year as well.
We will form up at the corner of Beacon Street and Charles at the edge of the Boston Common at noon for an approximately 1 PM step off. (Depending when the “officials” step off.) We will have flags, banners, etc. but you can bring your own posters especially this year around the war clouds forming over North Korea and Iran.
After the finish of the march at City Hall Plaza we will walk across the street to have our Armistice Day program at Sam Adams Park at Fanueil Hall from about 2 PM to 3:00 PM. This year’s MC will be our Smedley Butler Brigade-VFP coordinator Vietnam veteran Dan Luker. Along with music and poetry readings this year we are lining up speakers knowledgeable about Korea and Iran/Afghanistan.
See you all on November 11th at noon at Beacon and Charles –thanks- Ex Comm-Smedley Butler Brigade-VFP
