Assembly Area and March Route
We may have lost in court, but thanks to the massive public pressure on our behalf, we are pleased to announce that the City has finally come to the bargaining table and negotiated a sensible agreement with us for a historic march against war and the Bush Agenda, that takes us through the heart of Manhattan.
The plans for our march assembly remain what they have been: We will gather beginning at 10:00AM in the area north of 14th Street and Seventh Avenue. We will step off at noon and march up Seventh Avenue past Madison Square Garden, the site of the Republican National Convention.
From there, we will turn east on 34th Street, march to Fifth Avenue, then march down Fifth Avenue to 23rd Street and then march down Broadway. The final destination for our march will be Union Square, where we will conclude our historic march.
Union Square, of course, is the place where so many New Yorkers gathered spontaneously after September 11, to express our grief at the terrible attack on our city and our conviction that this attack not be used to justify more killing and war.
