DRONES KILL INNOCENT PEOPLE

 

VIGIL AGAINST THE DRONES

OUTSIDE THE GATES OF VOLK FIELD

NOTE: CHANGE IN DATE AND TIME

TUESDAY DECEMBER 18, 2018     11:00 am- Noon

We need YOU there

Dear Friends,

IMPORTANT NOTE: We will be vigiling at a different time and day this month.  Because the 4th Tuesday of the month falls on December 25, we will move the vigil up a week to December 18.  And because the sun sets before 4:30 on that date, we will vigil at 11:00 am.

So, please join us at Volk Field on Tuesday December 18 at 11:00 am to vigil against drone warfare.  After the vigil we will have lunch together in Mauston.  

The vigil at Volk Field is a legal vigil where we will be on public property.  As always, it will be a solemn vigil, remembering the victims of US government drone attacks.

DIRECTIONS - To get to the vigil, take the Camp Douglas exit off Interstate 90/94 between Mauston and Tomah.  When you exit take County Rd. C to the northeast.  You will see the base straight ahead, but follow County Rd. C to the right and within a few blocks is a picnic wayside where we will park on the side of the road.  The wayside is now closed for the winter and there are no bathrooms available.  

THE VIGIL - We will gather at the wayside around 10:45 am for introductions and to review the plan for the vigil, and then process together to the gates of the base where we will hold a solemn vigil for one hour to remember those killed by drones.  Participants can stand in silence or read poems and stories about the effects of drone warfare.  It is important that the voices of the victims be brought to the gates of Volk Field. 

Bring posters if you can.
