Reclaim Armistice Day, 2018!

Reclaim Armistice Day!

Two Events on Sunday, November 11, the 100th anniversary of the original Armistice Day marking the end of World War I in 1918:

Ring Bells for Peace! 11:00 am at Veterans Memorial Park

Celebrate Peace! 3:00 to 5:00 pm at J. P. Jones Community Development Center, 2400 Rickert Street

Armistice Day has traditionally been celebrated by ringing bells as a symbol of the huge sense of relief felt by the whole world when “The Great War” ended in November 1918 and people could finally stop slaughtering each other. The renaming of November 11 as “Veteran’s Day” has effectively converted it into a celebration of militarism, setting the climate for more wars, killing and heartbreak.

Join us for two events to reclaim Armistice Day as a celebration of peace and an opportunity to commit ourselves to peaceful tomorrows.

We will have a short bell-ringing ceremony at the Veteran’s Park at 11:00. In the afternoon there will be a celebration of peace at the J. P. Jones Center from 3:00 to 5:00. The program will include several speakers and a performance by our extraordinary Peace Choir.

Share/Educate: World’s Biggest Polluter

We know that the United States military is the world’s #1 polluter. We also know that our time to successfully address anthropogenic climate change is running out.

We are asking you to take a moment to help educate your social media community about the incredible ecological destruction caused by the United States military. This Friday, please share EcoWatch’s article (link below) detailing the effect the U.S. military has had on the global environment. Share on your wall, share via message, share in groups – wherever you can.

Education will be a big piece to successfully addressing the problem. We can all help. This particular action just asks for a minute of your time, but the effects could be far-reaching.” from The Maggie Phair Institute
