Vets for Peace to March on Good Friday

City of Evansville
The Four Freedoms Monument on Evansville's riverfront

The group and other activists are calling on the Evansville City Council to approve a peace resolution

A veterans group will march in Evansville calling for peace in Gaza. WNIN’s John Gibson has a preview:

Members of Veterans for Peace will gather at the Four Freedoms Monument at 3 p.m. on Good Friday and march to the Civic Center for a speakers rally.

The group says a contingent of activists, including members of the local Palestinian Solidarity Coalition, will take part in the event.

Veterans for Peace has asked the Evansville City Council to approve a resolution calling for a lasting bilateral ceasefire between Israel and Hamas, the release of all hostages, and unrestricted humanitarian aid.

The proposed resolution also condemns all forms of anti-Arab and anti-Palestinian racism, anti-semitism, and Islamophobia.

Vets for Peace notes dozens of other cities across the country have passed similar resolutions.
