Armistice Day People’s Peace Parade

    Armory Park
    220 S 5th Ave
    Tucson, AZ 85701
    “Be part of the switch from a military economy to a caring economy. On the 100th anniversary of Armistice Day (when war was supposed to end for good), we’ll gather at Armory Park at noon, create art & music, have a short parade at 2, and return to Armory Park for music, dance, food, & fun.
    On this 100th anniversay, join us to take back Armistice Day, which seems to have become a celebration of wars and warriors instead of a concerted demand for PEACE in our world. That means an end to wars and warriors in Afghanistan, Iraq, Yemen and Syria, the Korean Peninsula and elsewhere. That means an end to building nuclear or other warheads of any type. That means bringing some sanity to a world increasingly filled with rage, hate and weapons. Join us! We will meet at the corner of Armory Park and process through the downtown area, leaving seeds of peace along the way.”
