The small demonstrations, which are scheduled through June 22 are informally sponsored by the local Palo Alto/Peninsula branch of the Women's Intl. League for Peace and Freedom and take place every Friday from noon to 1 at the corner of El Camino Real and Embarcadero (under the large "lantern" sign for Town & Country Village - just past its El Camino entrance). This location has been a traditional "free speech corner" for many decades, and we respect the T&C Village property, keep the sidewalks clear, and engage in peaceful demonstration of the goals of the Poor People's Campaign, mentioned above.
Our June 1 demonstration honors National Gun Violence Awareness Day (which is observed the next day, June 2nd) by standing in vigil to end gun violence, and also for equal voting rights, as we approach the June 5 elections. Our next peaceful demonstration is Fri. June 8, same time & place, on affordable healthcare and the health of our planet. Please join us!

If you can't join us, we have two more small demonstrations planned at the same place, same time on June 15th and 22nd. If you can't be with us at the corner, but if you walk by, we usually have handbills on various topics, and if you drive by, please read our signs, wave to us, give us a thumbs up, or honk your horn in support.
