March of the Dead on 9th Anniversary of the invasion of Afghanistan

March of the Dead on 9th Anniversary of the invasion of Afghanistan

Friday, October 8, 2010 - 8:30pm to 10:00pm

Marchers approaching Arlington National Cemetary in 2008.  A similar march will take place in Providence Oct. 8 2010.

Marchers will gather at Burnside Park (Exchange Street and Kennedy Plaza, Providence) at 4:30 pm to prepare for the march.  Marchers are asked to dress in black and, if possible, to leave items like backpacks elsewhere.  Signs and masks will be provided.  We also need several people to hand out flyers.  We will march slowly and silently from Burnside Park through Kennedy Plaza to City Hall, down Dorance St to Weybossett, down Weybossett to the plaza outside of Textron Headquarters, over Exchange St to Kennedy Plaza and back to the park.  People who are not masked are welcome to join the march as well. 

The March of the Dead is in commemoration of the 9th anniversary of the invision and occupation of Afghanistan.  It is to call attention to the many costs of war and to call on all political leadership to bring it to an immediate end.
