The sounds of marching, charging feet…

Several marches and demonstrations are on the calendar in the coming days, and the summer's not even here*. Here's a quick list:

March to Demand Peace and Promote Justice
3 p.m. Sunday
Starts at Veterans Memorial Arena, ends at Riverfront Park. Organizers say it will "honor our commitment after the failed bombing (of the MLK Day march in January) and arrest of a suspect."

Labor Rights Demonsration
7:30 a.m. Monday
Broadway and Maple. Sign waving by members of the United Food and Commercial Workers.

We Are One Rally
4:30 p.m. Monday
North Division and Ruby.
Organizers say it's part of national effort "to raise awareness of the vital importance of the labor movement".

If any of that interests you, mark your calendar. If any of these bug you and may be along your planned routes for those days, consider yourself forewarned to make a detour.


*Reference to old Rolling Stones song. Sorry, couldn't resist.
