THE GREAT PEACE MARCH TO HOLD 25TH ANNIVERSARY PUBLIC GATHERING MARCH 1 AT NOON ON STEPS OF L.A. CITY HALL WHERE THE HISTORIC 1986 CROSS-COUNTRY TREK FOR GLOBAL NUCLEAR DISARMAMENT STARTED
Los Angeles, CA - As Mayor Tom Bradley spoke and wished the 1,200 peace marchers well, and singers such as Melissa Manchester and Holly Near sang songs of hope and inspiration to the large crowd gathered that clear March 1, 1986 morning on the steps of Los Angeles City Hall, the Great Peace March was officially starting their 3,700 mile, 8 ½ - month cross- country trek for peace and global nuclear disarmament that would conclude November 15 on the steps of the Lincoln Memorial in Washington D.C. But the march was not without many extreme hardships, trials and tribulations. And, certainly, the march was not without much individual and collective commitment as well as hopes, dreams and visions of a world free of nuclear weapons.
So, on Tuesday, March 1, 2011 at 12:00 Noon, again on the front steps of L.A. City Hall, Great Peace March participants and supporters will gather, hold a 25TH Anniversary Public Rally, and then collectively participate in a short march around the perimeter of City Hall.
Los Angeles City Hall is located at 200 N. Spring Street. The event is free and open to the public. Speakers and participants at the rally will include marchers, march supporters, elected officials, religious leaders, musicians, and community group representatives who are still working to promote a nuclear-free world.
