    From the Union Leader, a group calling themselves Veterans for Peace hassled as they were lining up for the Memorial Day Parade in Manchester, NH. They initially did not have a banner identifying who they were, an apparent violation, but relented..and wound up marching anyways. Starting to look a little bit like 1970 once again..

    MANCHESTER – Members of Veterans for Peace yesterday were pulled out of the Memorial Day parade in Manchester and threatened with arrest for refusing to march without banners identifying themselves.

    They were later allowed to participate carrying their banners, one of which read, "Veterans for Peace Honor the Fallen."

    Melanie Martel, a Manchester resident, said she saw a police cruiser pull up with its lights on. She said the officer, identified as Sgt. Peter Bartlett, stood in front of the Veterans for Peace group and would not let them continue.
