Join the Peace Parade Against Militarism and Imperialism!
Our malicious child-president Donald Trump has demanded, “I want a parade like the one in France.”
This tacky display is tentatively scheduled for Veteran's Day—Sunday, November 11th.
On that day we will have our own parade through the streets of DC to show that the real will of the American people is for peace, not war.
Instead of glorifying war and the killing machine, our parade will celebrate peace and international solidarity.
Instead of troops marching in formation, we will have bands marching in celebration.
Form a contingent with your friends. Build a float, paint a banner, or dress in costume. Decorate your bike and throw candy. Bring musical instruments; make a spectacle.
Let’s one-up Trump and steal the show, you know how much he hates that.
We the people will commemorate the 100th anniversary of “The War To End All Wars” with a renewed determination to actually end all wars.
WHY WE RALLY
We condemn the cost of a military parade—millions of dollars that could be used to improve lives instead.
We love our neighbors, our family, and our friends, but this does not equate with hatred of those we have never met or who live in a different part of our world.
We reject this bald attempt to activate pro-war sentiment in the United States.
We see those in other countries as our fellow humans, not as enemies, and not as people to be looked down on and dominated.
We denounce militarism and wars of conquest, which only serve to enrich defense contractors.
We believe that the best way to support our troops is to stop sending them to other countries to die fighting rich men’s wars.
We will not be intimidated by this pathetic show of force.
People like us made those tanks, and people like us will be driving those tanks. Not Cadet Bone Spurs with his five draft deferments.
We stand in resistance the growing authoritarianism of the Trump Administration, which is daily chipping away at our democratic norms and institutions.
This ridiculous war parade idea is the latest page out of Trump’s wannabe-dictator playbook.
It is a barely-veiled threat not just to the rest of world, but to internal dissent and opposition to the Trump Administration and its policies.
PISS ON TRUMP’S WAR PARADE!
