STOP THE WARS AT HOME AND
ABROAD, DON’T GLORIFY THEM

President Trump ordered a military parade for November 11,
the 100th anniversary of the armistice that ended WWI.
Many groups are organizing to stop this parade, reclaim
Veteran’s Day as Armistice Day and call for demilitarization and
investment in programs that protect and support our
communities in positive ways and heal the climate crisis and
environmental degradation.

We are joining together to make the response to President
Trump’s military parade bigger than the parade itself.

On the eleventh hour of the eleventh day of the eleventh month on the 100th anniversary of the Armistice that silenced the guns of the “war to end all wars,” we will march in silence to reclaim the Armistice Day promise of peace.

Armistice Day was renamed Veterans Day following the Korean War, most likely to energize the country for upcoming conflicts and to embolden young men who were subject to the draft.
We are not attempting to ignore or discredit Veterans Day. However, we believe that Veterans Day has been seized by those who love war, profit and power; “honoring” veterans has simply become a one-day photo-op for generals, politicians, celebrities and mattress companies. We, the veterans, are the product of war. We demand peace.
The Veterans Peace March will be veteran-led. Supporters are urged to attend and march, but do so with respect to the veterans in the lead, and also respect the complete silence of the veterans as they march.
We will begin marching at 11AM, in silence, from the Washington Monument.
how-isWe will be stopping to leave remembrance poppies at the:
 
• WWII Memorial
• Vietnam Veterans Memorial
• Vietnam Womenʼs Memorial
• Lincoln Memorial
• Korean War Veterans Memorial
 
We will then cross the Memorial Memorial Bridge to Arlington National Cemetery where we will leave a poppies at selected grave sites.
 
Our goal is to challenge war. We will march in silence to counter the clamor for war. The remembrance poppies are to honor the warriors (Red), the massive civilian deaths (White), and the resisters who opposed the war (Black) … and not the war.

Please join us in Waging Peace.

We are planning an action a day ahead of the parade and a nighttime concert prior to the parade. Is this the simple of it? Our focal point will be veterans and active duty soldiers as the core element, with supporting organizations backing our effort. We formed to counter Trump’s parade … but we recommend if Trump doesn’t do a parade that we continue this work to still hold a March to reclaim Armistice Day as A Day To Remember and respect our fallen brothers and sisters throughout the world, in each country, and to never forget the folly of war. “
