Tax Day peace vigil in Walpole

Over 30 people gathered on the Walpole Common on Saturday, April 15, at a peace vigil calling for a reduction in military spending and a redirection of those funds to human services. Sponsored by the Walpole Peace and Justice Group, a 40-foot banner was held showing where the Federal discretionary budget is spent today based on the 2017 budget. The banner consisted of colored panels, each representing a budget category like military spending and education, with a length proportional to the size of each budget.
