Santa Cruzans gathered once again along busy Ocean Street to greet this year's Independence Day beach tourists with the message of Peace as they drove into town. The weather was predicted to be warm and traffic was bumper to bumper as long-time anti-war activists lined the streets holding signs and greeting people.

The rally is an annual event in Santa Cruz.

Santa Cruz area Veterans were in attendance representing VFW Post 5888, and they held their large "Wage Peace" banner. The Raging Grannies sang, and members of Food Not Bombs Santa Cruz held their "three lane" banner, which is so wide it spans three lanes of traffic when stretched out fully.

The rally was co-sponsored by People United for Peace of SC County, SC Coalition to Bring the Troops Home Now, CodePink SC, Santa Cruz Against Drones, the Resource Center for Nonviolence, Santa Cruz Quaker Meeting, Raging Grannies SC, Women in Black SC, SC Branch of the Women's International League for Peace and Freedom, Veterans for Peace SC, United Nations Association SC, and SC Chapter of Jewish Voice for Peace.

Wage class war on the 1% so the 99% can live in peace and prosperity.
