Below is a list of Puppets and Icons for the Procession for the Future (Backbone Campaign) March 21 -- Sixth Sad Anniversary of the Iraq War --
The organizers of this Procession ask that you show up at UF by 13th St. at University Av. a couple hours early before the parade/procession begins at 1 pm. A permit to parade down University Av. to the Bo Diddley Downtown Community Plaza has been obtained and the Procession plans on arriving at the Plaza about 2 pm . There will be speakers and music. We have confirmed Mind Rise, a great reggae/antiwar group and we are waiting to get confirmation on the Gainesville Liberation Orchestra and another Radical Marching Band, folks, others, etc. from 2-4 pm. There will be tabling so your group can bring a table and your sales gear to this event. The poster is almost finalized. Please spread the word about this event March 21 and ask your pals to show up.
Mainly, this email is a list of the puppets and icons that will need carriers. Choose which one you want to participate in! It will be a great time. Join in!
