Full name: Saint Patrick's Peace Parade: Peoples Parade for Peace, Equality, Jobs, Social and Economic Justice
When: Sunday March 18, 2012 (2 p.m.)
Where: South Boston, same route as the “official parade”
Please join Veterans For Peace and other peace and social justice organizations for this historic alternative “people’s parade” following the official Saint Patrick’s Day Parade.
Background: Again this year we were denied permission to walk in the “Official Saint Patrick’s Day Parade.”
This year, as last year, we will march immediately following the “official parade.” Our parade is a “people’s parade for peace and justice.” We invite all progressive groups (peace, environmental, women’s rights, civil rights, Occupy Boston, labor, LGBTQ, communities of faith/congregations, etc.) in the greater Boston area to please join us as we follow behind the official parade.
