"Seniors for Peace: Happy Tenth Anniversary!"
From the series TUC Radio we hear "Seniors for Peace: Happy Tenth Anniversary!" on the origin of the longest continuous peace rally in the Bay Area. We remember the huge demonstrations against the war on Iraq in 2003.
Of those hundreds of thousands who came out for peace across the world mostly films, photos and very fond memories survive. But one group, maybe the most unlikely of all, the Seniors for Peace in Mill Valley, CA, just kept going. For ten years now this year, 2013, every Friday at 4 pm rain or shine, they spend an hour at the intersection of Miller and Camino Alto with hand drums, guitar, harmonica, fiddle and banners for peace. That in spite of the need of some to use a wheelchair or walker since their average age is now 86 and many are in their nineties.
