Some 500 Veterans for Peace, members of peace groups, and gay rights demonstrators marched in South Boston March 20 in an alternative St. Patrick's Parade.   Veterans for Peace and LGBT groups were excluded from the main St. Patrick's Day parade and staged their own march.  

The response from the South Boston onlookers was overwhelmingly positive, with many sporting "V" signs for peace or shouting "Bring the Troops Home".
