from Voices for Creative Nonviolence
Please join our walk along Lake Michigan’s south shore and through southwest Michigan, a protest against drone warfare. We’ll be walking 15 miles per day for 11 days, about 165 miles from Chicago to the Michigan Air National Guard base in Battle Creek, proposed site of a new drone command center.
We’ll need help in locating venues for speaking events along the route, for members of the public who might like to hear from Brian Terrell, a Voices drone activist who served 6 months in prison for nonviolent civil resistance at a drone base, and from Maya Evans and Kathy Kelly, who will have just returned from Afghanistan, where U.S. drones have tragically impacted so many lives. We will also need people who can help us find places to sleep along the route, including churches, private homes, or, for many of those walking, designated campsites, where available.
Please let us know if you would like to join in for any segment of the walk or assist the walk in any way as we all strive to galvanize public opinion against drone warfare. We welcome your emails and calls!
