Boston, Mass.-May 25, 2015:
The Boston Smedley Butler chapter of Veterans For Peace
held its annual anti-war Memorial Day observance yesterday
May 25. This was at Waterfront Park near Faneuil Hall, Boston.
About 100 peace activists listened to veterans talk about
the horror of war as well as reading poems against war.
The second half of the observance involved reading
the names of Massachusetts soldiers who have died in
the Iraq and Afghanistan wars-a flower was tossed into the
harbor for each name. Also, bunches of flowers were tossed
into the harbor symbolizing all the civilians killed by the US.
