This Sunday, the 16th, forty organizations and 2,500 marchers are expected to participate in the Saint Patrick’s Day Peace Parade in South Boston.
We will join them and march for Manning, Snowden, open government and personal privacy. Join us. Bring your banners, signs, and friends!
The parade assembles at 2pm on D Street near Cypher St. in South Boston. It starts at 3pm. We march in the political groups division. Look for Veterans For Peace flags and our banner.
If you want you can sign up to the Facebook Event.
Getting to the Assembly Area
Come by T if at all possible as the area will be very congested. Broadway is the closest MBTA subway station, though it tends to get crowded so you will need to give yourself much extra time to get there. An alternative way is to get off at the MBTA Silver Line’s World Trade Center stop and walk from there. We included maps for both methods.
Parking is available for participants in the St. Patrick’s Peace Parade. Vehicles must enter from the north from Summer Street onto D Street; the parking lot is at 383 D Street. Look for the lot with 40 foot white truck trailers. Allow extra time for traffic.
