Paul Robeson High School Peace March

By Michael Meyer

CNV 2015 Paul Robeson HS Peace March -small(2)During the Campaign Nonviolence Week of Actions and in celebration of International Peace Day, the students of Paul Robeson High School decided to hold a Peace Rally. Starting at the school, the students walked from Paul Robeson to Hamilton Park and back. In preparation for this march, students had made signs and created chants spreading messages of positivity and anti-violence. Flowing down Normal Boulevard, the sound of 20 students could be heard drumming and chanting “1,2,3,4 Get the violence out the door, 5,6,7,8, Give us love not the hate”, “Robeson Stands for Peace”, “No guns, no drugs, we use our arms for hugs” and  “Save our streets”. Carrying signs and walking with pride, the students got encouraging chants from onlookers in the neighborhood and even had some community members join in the march. In the current state of violence in this community, the courage that these students displayed by entering the streets and demanding a positive change for peace reflects a dedication that Robeson students have for committing to positive change and bettering their community.
