Brainerd Area Coalition for Peace (BACP) will hold a peace vigil on Monday, October 6. The vigil begins outside the side entrance to the United Church of Christ (UCC). The UCC is located at 415 Juniper Street, Brainerd, near the southwest corner of Gregory Park. Vigil participants will march from the UCC to the intersection of Sixth and Washington Streets.

The peace vigil is scheduled to last from 5:30 to 7 p.m. Signs are available for vigil participants.

The vigil will demand an immediate end to the U.S. bombing of Iraq and Syria, the withdrawal of all U.S. military advisers from Iraq, and a halt to U.S. military aid to the Iraqi government, Syrian rebels, and Kurdish regional government. The vigil will support peaceful resolutions to the sectarian conflicts in Iraq and Syria. The BACP vigil is in solidarity with protests held around the United States against the Iraq/Syria War.

Following the vigil, BACP will hold our monthly meeting in the UCC upstairs library. Everyone is welcome to attend the peace vigil and the BACP monthly meeting. Please join us.
