Peace Lovers Celebrate 20 Years on the Peace Bridge

Peace Lovers Celebrate 20 Years on the Peace Bridge from The UpTake on Vimeo. For 20 years peace advocates have gathered on the Peace Bridge, the Lake Street Marshall Avenue bridge over the Mississippi River connecting the two cities. Every Wednesday for 20 years, rain snow or shine, they have gathered on this bridge. On June 25, 1991, the Twin Cities designated this site as the, “Sri Chinmoy Peace Bridge.” April 1999 saw a small group of peace advocates starting the Wednesday tradition with flags and banners and 20 years of quiet pleas for peace continued. April 24, 2019 about 200 activists, many of them aging, took to the bridge to continue the quest for peace.
