Boston, Mass. May 25, 2009--Boston Veterans For Peace and Military Families Speakout held their second annual anti-war Memorial Day observance in Waterfront Park on May 25, 2009. Speakers spoke about the devastation of the Iraq/Afghan wars and the terrible toll taken on US soldiers as well as civilians. After the speakers, the names of each Mass. soldier killed in Iraq/Afghanistan were read aloud and a flower was tossed in the harbor water after each name was read. Bouquets of flowers were tossed in the water for the million civilian deaths in the 2 wars. This anti-war Memorial Day event stood in stark contrast to the many pro-war Memorial Day events held today.
