Trump wants a military parade with major war weaponry rolling down the streets of Washington, D.C. Plans are not firm. One possible date is November 11, which happens to mark 100 years since the celebration of what many hoped was an end to war on Armistice Day.
Click here to add your name to a petition insisting that such a parade not happen.
Parades are not themselves as bad as actual wars, but celebrations of militarism encourage militarism. This parade would only fuel war fever and weapons building in the United States and abroad.
Click here to say not only that you oppose any military Trumparade, but also that -- should such a thing be staged -- you will visibly support peace that day instead.
The madness of war is becoming madder. Trump is threatening a nuclear first strike. He's openly musing about the difficulty of "uniting" people without a "major event." He's trying to escalate conflicts with North Korea and Iran. This is a time to be scaling back the nationalism and war glorification, not ramping it up.
