FVC4PNJ marched in the 2015 Elgin, IL 4th of July Day Parade. We were joined by members of Occupy Naperville, Occupy Elgin, Northern Illinois Jobs with Justice, 350Kishwaukee and the Chicago Anonymous.
We also walked in the Streamwood Summer Festival Parade on July 25th, accompanied by the same excellent allies.
We will have a banner and several signs that say “Should the 1 percent run America?” We will have 2 banners that say ” Stop the Enbridge pipeline.” We will have signs carrying other social justice, anti-war, and environmental justice messages. You can bring a sign or banner of your own as long as it carries a congruent message. Signs in Spanish are welcome and encouraged.
We will be delighted to have you walk with us.
Here is the line-up information for those who said they would walk in Elgin’s July 4th parade, or who said they might do so.
