100th Anniversary of Armistice Day -- Ring a Bell for Peace!

Sunday, November 11, 2018
10:30 AM - 11:30 AM
Event Type:
Veterans for Peace Chapter 101
Location Details:
City Hall Plaza
Corner of Fourth & Santa Clara Streets
San Jose , CA 95112

This November 11 will be the 100th anniversary of Armistice Day, which only later came to be commemorated in the U.S. as Veterans Day. Veterans for Peace Chapter 101 invites you to join in the ringing of a bell at 11 am this November 11 to focus on the desire to end the horror of war rather than celebrate it.

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

Featured performances:
Songs by the Raging Grannies
Khalilah Ramirez and Sharat Lin performing the Dance of Peace

Veterans for Peace chapters across the nation are meeting on street corners in major cities to commemorate the original ARMISTICE DAY by ringing bells 11 times at 11 am 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.

Sponsored by Veterans for Peace Chapter 101, WILPF San José Branch, San José Code Pink, San José Catholic Worker, San José Peace & Justice Center, Raging Grannies - San José Gaggle, Green Party of Santa Clara County, Pacific Life Community - Bay Area and others

November 11th marks the necessity to make world peace with all nations by ending the manufacture and distribution of WMD-----weapons of mass destruction. This is because mother points out that if the governance starts stealing the public treasury by more than fifty percent for WMD, as is the case in the UK--U.S.A., well son, they may have peace on their lips but make no mistake, they are planning Aggressive War and not peace. Here are three anti-fascist liberation causing covenants to puruse. 1) Nuremberg trials chaired by chairman Robert H Jackson a U.S. Judge....."War is esentiall an Evil initiate a war of aggression, therefore, is not only a war crime: it is the supreme international crime differing only from other war crimes in that it contains the accumulated Evil of the whole". World law since (1945-46)
