Manchester, VT Peace March

Posted by Erin Bechtol
09.22.17

Jack’s Group’s 20 foot peace dove made its debut on September 20. They gathered at Adams Park where all participants signed a Commitment to Nonviolence (adapted from Engage). They processed in silence and with candles to Factory Point Green emphasizing all the suffering and loses that we mourn. They were greeted by music by the Stephen Havel Band. At the brief rally Rev. Steve Berry gave a rousing talk announcing the creation of the Campaign Nonviolence Vermont initiative to train up clergy and laity in active nonviolence. Singing “This Land is Your Land,” they marched back through town with their CNV banner, Peace dove,  drumming, and signs representing all the good we celebrate along with sparklers in the dark. Twenty-two people attended — a competing Climate Event hearing in town was scheduled at the same time. The media showed up to take pictures.
