Promoting Nonviolence at the Maui County Parade

Posted by Ryan Hall

By David Smith

Maui County Parade happened on Sept. 24th with no nonviolence presence in the parade but I’d made up a couple posters & flyers urging people to go to Campaign Nonviolence website and take the pledge for Nonviolence. I “worked” the sidewalk before the parade, gave all the flyers out mostly to receptive young mothers with children! Couple thousand people saw me waving the signs then I went to the parade staging area and held up the signs as 4 Jr ROTC (that’s high school!) battalions, 20 marching bands and 1000 Boys and Girls Scouts troupes waited to march. Looked uncannily like a military parade & got quizzical looks from many young people.

Hawaii has 26 High School ROTC battalions! Boy Scouts have merit badges in ATOMIC ENERGY another in NUCLEAR SCIENCE where you can build models of nuke reactors and find nuclear career opportunities and RIFLE SHOOTING and CITIZENSHIP but not in Nonviolence History or Training or Conflict Resolution. Let’s change this and get our Nonviolence groups also marching in out local parades!
