UJP: Memorial Day for Peace


Please join Veterans For Peace, Military Families Speak Out, United for Justice
with Peace, Gold Star Families for Peace and the American Friends Service
Committee for a ceremony for Peace on Memorial Day.

Speakers to include:

John Schuchardt – House of Peace, Ipswich, MA

Ross Caputi – Marine veteran of the Iraq War (2003 – 2006) 

President of Boston University Anti-War Coalition

Kevin & Joyce Lucey, parents of Corporal Jeffrey Lucey, U.S. M.C.

Corporal Alex Arredondo U.S,M.C.

Oday Mahmood & Ayfer AbedAljibar– Iraqi Refugees – Will speak on behalf of
the new Iraqi community here in Massachusetts.

James Vanloy – Poet

John Olivere – Singer/Songwriter

Brian Quirk – Bagpipe player (Merrimack Valley People for Peace)

We will recite the names of those fallen from Massachusetts who passed away in
support of what we believe to be illegal and illicit wars in Iraq and
Afghanistan.  Flowers will be dropped into Boston Harbor in memory of these
young men and women. Names of Iraq and Afghanistan civilians killed in the
conflicts will also be read by family and friends.

We mourn deeply all those who should not have lost their lives in war, sadly,
perpetrated by misguided leaders, leading a misinformed public and an
over-extended military into two immoral wars we greatly oppose. 

“War is a Racket”! -Smedley D. Butler, Major General U.S.M.C.

Directions from the Aquarium T stop:

Follow the signs in the station for Waterfront and Aquarium.

As you exit the T station, turn right on Atlantic Ave. and turn right again
after passing the Long Wharf Marriott. Enter Christopher Columbus Park. The
event will be taking place along the harbor, look for the Veterans for Peace
white flags.
