Women in Black Vigil
12 noon-1pm, Friday, December 15
Fredericton City Hall, corner of Queen and York.
* If you are against war and for peace and justice, please stand with us at noon on Friday.
* We will meet at City Hall at the same time every other Friday.
* Most Women in Black vigils around the world are composed of women but men have joined many vigils throughout the world. All (women, men, & children) are invited to stand in the Fredericton Women in Black peace vigils.
* We have a few signs and flyers on the go at the moment but feel free to bring your own. There is a variety of slogans and issues covered in Women in Black peace vigils. Some address international issues, such as the war against Iraq, while others address local issues, such as the rise of neo-Nazism in some countries. Israeli Women in Black vigils hold signs that say “End the Occupation”. Internationally, many signs read “End the Israeli Occupation”. In some countries, signs read, “End War” or “End All Oppression” or “Stop the Cycle of Violence” or simply “Peace”.
