Description: 100th Anniversary of Armistice Day This November 11 will be the 100th anniversary of Armistice Day, which only later came to be commemorated in the U.S. as Veterans Day. Veterans for Peace Chapter 101 invites you to join in the ringing of a bell at 11 am this November 11 to focus on the desire to end the horror of war rather than celebrate it. Banners and signs are fine but it would be best if the ambience were more reserved until after he bell is rung. Khalilah Ramirez & Sharat Lin performing the Dance of Peace. Songs by the Raging Grannies. Veterans for Peace chapters across the nation are meeting on street corners in major cities to commemorate the original ARMISTICE DAY by ringing bells 11 times at 11 am on November 11 as as was done at the end of World War I, when the world came together in realization that war is so horrible we must end it now. Sponsored by Veterans for Peace Chapter 101, WILPF San Josť Branch, San Josť Code Pink, San Josť Catholic Worker, San Josť Peace & Justice Center, Raging Grannies - San Josť Gaggle, Green Party of Santa Clara County, Peace & Freedom Party of Santa Clara County, Orchard City Indivisible, Pacific Life Community - Bay Area, our developing world, and others
