Anti War groups Join the Establishment

by expatbrian

I hope this starts a nationwide trend and is an omen of things to come. And I'm not surprised, indeed I'm a little proud that it's in California. Long Beach Veteran's Day Parade organizers are going to allow anti war groups to march in the festival this year.

Parade organizers say Veterans for Peace, Iraq Veterans Against the War and Military Families Speak Out will each be allowed to carry a banner in the 12th edition of the event on Nov. 8.
The groups were prohibited from marching last November because organizers said they didn't fit the spirit of the parade honoring veterans.

That is good news Brian. That's the spirit of America that I remember and love. Everybody should get a voice.
