Help cover ground to ground the drones

WNPJ member group Voices for Creative Nonviolence is planning a 200-mile walk and speaking tour to protest drone warfare.

From June 8 to 23, walkers will trek from the Rock Island Arsenal (where launch mechanisms and bomb components are manufactured) to the Iowa Air National Guard’s 132nd Fighter Wing in Des Moines, the proposed site of a new command center where drones can be remotely-piloted to fly over other countries.

Voices for Creative Nonviolence is seeking walkers, places to stay and groups interested in hosting a presentation.  The walkers will include Voices co-coordinator and activist Brian Terrell, of Maloy, IA, who will have just completed 6 months in prison for nonviolent civil resistance at a drone base, and Kathy Kelly, who will have just returned from Afghanistan, where U.S. drones have tragically impacted so many lives.
