Hi folks,

Sorry if you get this multiple times.  Please join Veterans For Peace  
on Veterans Day, Wednesday Nov. 11, as we once again march behind the  
street sweepers in the Veterans Day Parade.  The American Legion won't  
let us march with our signs and antiwar cadences, although apparently  
it is OK for the JROTC kids to have their cadences, which the Legion  
says are "proper cadences."  So once again we are in the back, but we  
will be loud and we will bring our message to the crowd.  Bring them  
home now, and take care of them when they return.

We meet at noon at the corner of Beacon and Charles St.  The parade  
kicks off at 1.  At the end, we have gotten a permit for our own  
speaking event on City Hall Plaza, since the American Legion has  
cancelled theirs.  There will be speakers from Veterans For Peace,  
Military Families Speak Out, and hopefully Iraq Veterans Against The  
War, and a brass band.  Featured speaker will be Capt. Paul Chappell,  
Iraq veteran and author of "Will War Ever End?  A Soldier's Vision of  
Peace for the 21st Century."

Then in the evening please join us at Johnny D's in Davis Sq.  
Somerville for a fundraiser at 7:30 PM.  Donation is $15 and the music  
will be the Willie Sordillo Jazz Group, The Swing Cafe, featuring  
Billy Novick, and Pat Scanlon and Friends.  The food is very good so  
consider making a dinner reservation and join us for the party!

We hope to see all of you there.  Please forward this on far and wide  
to email lists.

Peace,
Nate Goldshlag
Smedley Butler Brigade, Veterans For Peace Chapter 9
