Date(s): Tue, November 2nd, 2010 thru Thu, November 11th, 2010
Join Maine Veterans for Peace as we walk across the state in order to engage the public about the need to end the war in Afghanistan (now costing us over $8 billion a month), promote social progress, take care of veterans when they come home (suicides are at an all time high among Iraq/Afghan war vets), and the impact on our environment from endless war.
The walk will go from Farmington-Skowhegan-Waterville-Bangor-Belfast-Rockland-Bath-Freeport-Portland.
Each night local hosts will organize a potluck supper, an educational program, and make sleeping arrangements for the walkers.
Walk for an hour, a day, or for the entirety. The walk will conclude with Veterans for Peace participating in the November 11 Veterans Day parade in Portland.
The peace walk will be led by Buddhist monks/nuns from the Nipponzan Myohoji order.
Contact Veterans for Peace for more information at 207-443-9502 or 207-865-0655.
