March for Chelsea Manning in the 2016 Pride Parade
Sunday, June 26, 2016, 

The Chelsea Manning contingent of Veterans For Peace is in the Seattle Pride Parade again. We'll be marching in support of US Army whistle-blower Chelsea Manning. Bring posters, t-shirts, whistles, and other items proclaiming your support for Chelsea.

The parade will be held rain or shine. Plan for the morning by wearing a good pair of walking shoes and bringing a hat, water, sunscreen, and/or rain gear as needed.

We will muster in the Republic Parking lot under the freeway overpass same as last two years. The lot is between Cherry & James Streets and 6th & 7th Avenues . Our muster time is between 11:20 & 12:20 with the recommendation that you arrive closer to the 12:20 time.  The spot is circled in the graphic below:

Welcome the Golden Rule to Puget Sound!
In 1958 a crew of Quaker peace activists attempted to sail the Golden Rule to the Marshall Islands to interfere with US nuclear bomb testing.  This bold nonviolent direct action inspired a worldwide movement leading to the Partial Nuclear Test Ban Treaty of 1963.
After five years of restoration by Veterans For Peace and many friends, the Golden Rule is once again sailing for a nuclear-free world and a peaceful, sustainable future!
