On October 20-21, thousands will gather in Washington D.C. to participate in the Women’s March on the Pentagon. At the request of the event’s organizers, we are pleased to state that the Peace and Freedom Party officially endorses the Women’s March on the Pentagon.
The PFP is proud to note that the Women’s March steering committee is chaired by our own State Central Committee member Cindy Sheehan; our 2016 presidential nominee and 2018 gubernatorial nominee Gloria La Riva is on the board of organizers as well.
The dates for the demonstration were chosen to commemorate the original Women’s March on the Pentagon, which in 1967 drew some 50,000 participants. In 2018, the event is designed explicitly to “Confront the Bipartisan War Machine” of America in peaceful resistance to “the continuing march of military aggression by the USA.” Event organizers also seek to revive the concept of an antiwar agenda for activists in this country going forward.
