Boston-Nov. 11, 2010:
The Boston Smedley Butler Brigade of Veterans For Peace were forced again this year to march 300 yards behind the official Boston Veterans Day Parade. About 75 VFP members and anti-war supporters took part in this successful anti-war protest and were cheered on by many spectators viewing the parade from the sidewalks. This has been a yearly confrontation between Vets For Peace and the official Boston Vets Day parade organizers. The police on motorcycles made VFP wait til the official parade was well past before allowing them to march. The official parade was composed of mainstream pro-war veterans groups including many active US military and high school junior ROTC teenage kids.
The march went from Boston Common to Government Center and then to a VFP speakout outside Faneuil Hall. The theme this year was "How is the war economy working for you?"
