EVENT: RECLAIM ARMISTICE DAY
DATE: NOVEMBER 11, 2018, 5:30 P.M.
PLACE: GAIA HOUSE, 913 S. ILLINOIS AVE, CARBONDALE
November 11, 2018, is Armistice Day 100, a century since World War I was ended at a scheduled moment (11 o’clock on the 11th day of the 11th month in 1918). For decades in the United States, as elsewhere, Armistice Day was a holiday of peace, of sad remembrance and joyful ending of war, of a commitment to preventing war in the future. The holiday’s name was changed in the United States after the U.S. war on Korea to “Veterans Day,” a largely pro-war holiday.
Southern Illinois will reclaim this significant anniversary with a program and potluck to be held at the Gaia House, 913 S. Illinois Avenue in Carbondale, on Sunday, November 11, 2018 beginning at 5:30 P.M with a potluck. Following this, Rich Whitney will present “MAKING AMERICA CARE AGAIN—WHY AMERICANS SHOULD OPPOSE WAR.” This event is open to interested individuals at no cost.
This event is sponsored by the Peace Coalition of Southern Illinois/FOR, an affiliate of World Beyond War and the Shawnee Green Party.
