DRONES KILL INNOCENT PEOPLE
 
VIGIL AGAINST THE DRONES
OUTSIDE THE GATES OF VOLK FIELD
 
4th Tuesday of the Month
3:30-4:30 pm
 
We need YOU there
 
We must keep vigilant and continue to speak out against killer drones.  At our November vigil, some of us will attempt to deliver a letter and meet with base personnel to share our concerns about drone warfare.  Others will remain outside the base and continue the vigil.  We invite anyone who wants to nonviolently speak out against US drones that are killing and causing suffering to thousands of innocent children, women, and men overseas to join us.
 
WE MUST BRING THIS TERROR THAT THE US GOVERNMENT REIGNS DOWN ON OTHERS TO AN END!
 
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 between 3:00-3:15 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.
