A peace vigil assembles in downtown Binghamton every Monday evening from 4:30pm to 5:30pm. This picture was taken at about 5pm on my way to the State Office Building for the Moral Monday protest.
The peace vigil protests war and the use of drone warfare, among other things. Unless the weather prohibits it, this group of folks are there every week. As I stopped to speak with them briefly, someone else on a bike had stopped to read their signs and engage in conversation. People do notice these signs, from where small ripples occur and more people become aware of the effects of warfare in this world.
From the bridge newsletter: Federal Courthouse Peace vigil back to our original site in front of the Federal building on Henry St. at 4:30 PM on Mondays. Every Monday, 4:30 to 5:30PM EST (change because of daylight savings time) for questions, contact Ann Clune at 607*773*0246.
