Freeway Signs for Peace in Houston

Posted by Ryan Hall

In recognition of the International Day of Peace & Peace Week, and in solidarity with organizations & events demanding PEACE everywhere, organizers in Houston, Texas participated in a public display of people demanding PEACE along select overpass locations in Houston.

In our mass media dominated era, it takes substantial social action to impact the common narrative. The case for military intervention is constantly pressed, and only substantial and irrefutable public action slows the wheels of the war machine.

Organizer Laura Palmer reports that they got literally thousands of honks as people passed under bridges! She said that it’s energizing to feel so many people in solidarity for peace.
