May 24th is the International Women’s day for Peace and Disarmament a day they are using to raise up the cost of weapons and war to the planet. It is the day before US Memorial Day – a day that has been used to almost celebrate war. We choose to focus on peace and disarmament on Memorial Day weekend. So there are no more dead from war who need to be remembered.
Join us for a Peace car – avan on Memorial Day. Each community will make it their own.
Signage: Make your own signs if you can (or use window paint); we will have some extra signs if you need them. Some themes are: Peace, Global Ceasefire; No Sanctions, No War, HealthCare Not Warfare, War is Not Green, Divest from War or make an image that speaks your heart. Feel free to make peace flags and fully decorate your car.
