Veterans for Peace members discuss history and organization of tomorrow’s St. Patrick’s Day Peace Parade in which Occupy Boston will be marching

Occupy Boston will be marching in the St. Patrick’s Day Peace Parade for the first time this year. On this week’s episode of Occupy Boston Live, members of Veterans for Peace join host, Doug Green, to discuss their upcoming participation in the Peace Parade in Southie.

A Veterans for Peace organizer says a judge has ordered that the Peace Parade must keep a 1 mile physical distance between it and Boston’s ‘traditional’ St. Patrick’s Day Parade, as a result of that group’s efforts to keep out peace groups, GLBT groups and many others that don’t fit their narrow definition of “traditional.”

Assemble: 1:00 pm, D Street, between 1st and 3rd Streets.

Directions: From the Broadway T Stop in South Boston, this location is just a few blocks east on West Broadway (look for Veterans For Peace White Flags)
