Maine Chapter 1 and friends at the
Armistice Day Parade in Portland Maine, 2012

Our Maine Veterans For Peace crew lined up on November 11 morning at Monument Square in Portland with our flags in order to have the veterans day parade pass by us.   In recent years the American Legion has tried to kick us out of the parade because they did not like our peace message. They would demand that we only carry one banner with our name on it and nothing else. So the last two years we decided to do our own thing and have the parade have to walk past us.
