Mother march planned

BAR HARBOR — Indivisible MDI will host a mother march to celebrate mothers, love, peace and the mother-of-all, the planet, at the Village Green on Saturday, May 12, from 1-3 p.m.

Mother’s Day originated as a day for mothers to band together and demand a stop to the wars that had killed their sons, brothers and husbands, organizers said. That call wasn’t heeded, and daughters, sisters and wives are now active-duty service members, too.

Anyone interested in marching should meet at the Village Green with a poster, banner or other decoration. Posters will be available for those who don’t have their own. The march will proceed to the town pier, pause for a moment and then return to the green where speakers of diverse ages and backgrounds will share words from the point of view of love, peace and planet.
