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.

People's Bratfest Blitz with the ASO this weekend!

From WNPJ member group the Autonomous Solidarity Organization:

Got 15 minutes? An hour? 3 hours? We're looking for great volunteers like you to come help us get the word out to friends and neighbors about this year's best festival of brats! We appreciate any and all time you can spare to help out.

Saturday, 5/18 and Sunday, 5/19 we're asking folks to stop by our office (at 122 State St, room 404) for snacks, fun, talking to folks at the Farmer's Market, and flyering our neighborhoods.

Can't make it for the weekend of flyering? Stop by our office any time to pickup flyers for your friends and neighbors. Can't do that? How about volunteering at this year's PBF? Can't make it for that either?  Then, feel free to help us help out some amazing charities by donating to the Peoples' Bratfest online, here.
