International Peace Day Procession to be Held in Manchester
Jack’s Group, a local Campaign Nonviolence (CNV) affiliate, invites people to take action on International Peace Day, Thursday, September 21, during Nonviolence Week. Gather with the group at 6:30 p.m. to be part of a silent candlelight procession mourning what has been lost since the 2016 election – followed by a joyful celebration giving thanks for what is good. Bring lights, candles and signs of mourning and celebration and symbols of peace. The group will meet at Adams Park on Main Street/Route 7A, commit to nonviolent peaceful action, and proceed along Main Street to Factory Point Park on Depot Street, where there will be a short ceremony with music. The return procession to the Green will be a noisy, joyful celebration of what we are most thankful for.
