Once again, the Augusta area Women in Black and Veterans for Peace are marching in the Old Hallowell Day parade on Saturday, July 17,
In 2005, the
 Winslow 4th of July parade committee refused the Waterville-Winslow Bridges for Peace request for a float.  The Augusta Women in Black, which had
 marched in previous Hallowell parades, invited the Waterville-Winslow group to join them in the parade, and in turn, Hallowell parade officials extended the invitation with a “Everyone marches in Hallowell”.  This year marks the 9th year that P&J activists have marched in this parade.
We are inviting all Maine peace and justice activists to march with us this year.  The parade begins at 10:00 am.  Join us beginning at 9:15 Saturday morning in the parking lot on the north side of the train underpass leading into downtown
Our theme this year is Props for Peace.  When Lisa Savage spoke prior to Noam Chomsky's appearance in Portland earlier this year, she appeared as she usually does when she teaches.  Then she put on her Marge Simpson pink wig to become one of the Solon Code Pink group, emphasizing that props are an essential teaching tool for activists.
Wikipedia defines props asA theatrical property, commonly referred to as
 a prop, is any object held or used on stage by an actor for use in furthering the plot or story line of a theatrical production. Smaller props are referred to as "hand props". Larger props may also be set decoration, such as a chair or table. The difference between a set decoration and a prop is use. If the item is not touched by a performer for any reason it is simply a set decoration. If it is touched by the actor in accordance to script requirements or as deemed by
 the director, it is a prop.Please bring a prop, banner or sign.The march is about 6 blocks long.For more information, please contactRoger LeisnerRadio Free MaineP.O. Box 2705Augusta, Maine 04338207-242-0643
