Two Thousand Gather, March, Sing, and Pray for Peace
14 Oct 2001
Modified: 15 Oct 2001
First rough (and conservative) estimates puts the diverse crowd at around two thousand.
About two thousands activists and ordinary citizens gathered in damp cool weather in Copley Square under the Justice With Peace Coalition banner at 3pm, Sunday. At 4pm, the large crowd marched through the South End with Police escort and permission, to the second part of the Rally in a park.

People from several constituencies were represented, and the gathering was diverse socially and age-wise.

The crowd was perhaps the largest since the FTAA, Living Wage Campaign, and Presidential Debate protests.

People were encouraged to bring white flowers and lay them at a makeshift memorial for the victims of Sept 11, the racial backlash, and the bombing of Afghanistan, linking the human chain of suffering, and symbolizing our shared humanity and need for peace.
