Boston, Mass.-Nov. 11, 2012:
About 150 members of Veterans For Peace and their
supporters marched behind the official pro-war
Boston Veterans Day parade.
The organizers of the official pro-war Boston
Veterans Day parade, as in years past, will not permit Veterans For Peace to march in the main parade, so VFP members march several blocks behind the official parade--the reason: the pro-war veterans organizations do not believe that the 2 words-
"veterans" and "peace" fit together.
The march started on Boston Common at 1pm, led by the Leftist Marching Band, and then proceeded down Boylston and Tremont Streets to the applause of the many onlookers.
The VFP march ended at Faneuil Hall where a very moving and inspired speakout against war took place.
