  1. Hi, I’m a freelance journalist and would like to write an article about the parade and the stop sponsorship movement for Waging Nonviolence (http://wagingnonviolence.org/) an online platform about non-violent activism. It is based in the USA with an international readership. Would it be possible to have the number for one of the organizers to have a brief discussion about your project? You can contact me via email india_stoughton@yahoo.co.uk or by telephone 70214487. Many thanks
