Stop Trump's militarism parade before it starts

Trump wants a military parade with major war weaponry rolling down the streets of Washington, D.C.

We will deliver this petition to the U.S. House Majority Leader, House Minority Leader, Senate Majority Leader, and the Senate Minority Leader.

Let's stop this bad idea before it happens:

We demand that the United States hold no militarism-glorifying parade displaying weaponry of war. Should such a thing be staged, we will visibly support peace on that day.
