Stephen Zunes and others.

We will welcome the Veterans for Peace and others who walk to join us from Peace Park (on the east bank of the Steel Bridge--please join them there at 1 p.m. for a peace ceremony), and we will finish with a Coronation of the Collective Heart peace ritual led by Lenore Norrgard.
