UJP to march in HONK! Parade

When: Sunday, October 12, 2014, 9:00 am to 3:30 pm
Where: Davis Square • Elm Street • Somerville

The Somerville-based HONK! Parade of Activist Street Bands will take place on Sunday, October 12 at noon, and once again UJP's Eastern Massachusetts Anti-Drones Network (EMAD) will march carrying signs and its eye-catching Drone replica. The group's message is encapsulated in the banner it will carry: "No Killer Drones! No Spy Drones!" The U.S. Government must stop surveilling its citizens and killing people from other countries with drones.

 
The HONK! Parade is the culmination of the annual weekend-long HONK! Festival. Dozens of bands, community, artist and activist groups, including Veterans For Peace, will march from Davis Square down Elm Street, Beech Street and Massachusetts Avenue to Harvard Square, where they'll join forces with the Octoberfest celebration. Thousands of people view the parade, and last year, EMAD's Drone replica and anti-drones message were well-received. This year, EMAD's participation coincides with the first Global Action Day Against the Use of Drones for Surveillance & Killing, called by the KnowDrones.com network.
