Title: Armistice Day Ringing Bells for Peace
START DATE: Sunday November 11
TIME: 11:00 AM - 12:00 PM
Location Details:
At The Corner of Fourth & Santa Clara Streets
San Jose California
Event Type: Protest
Veterans for Peace chapters across the nation are meeting on street corners in major cities to celebrate the original ARMISTICE DAY by ringing bells 11 times at 11:00 on November 11 as as was done at the end of World War I, when the world came together in realization that war is so horrible we must end it now.

Veterans for Peace Chapter 101 invites those with a personal or organizational commitment to peace to join us in the ringing of bells on the morning of November 11 to focus on the desire to end the horror of war rather than celebrate it.

After the solemn gathering, the 11am bell ringing and a minute of silence there will be an opportunity to address the gathering with personal reflections. Banners and signs are fine but it would be best if the ambience were more reserved until after the bell is rung.
