Camp Ripley Peace Vigil - Drone Protest, September 20, 2015

Brainerd Area Coalition for Peace (BACP) and Occupy Little Falls will hold a peace vigil outside Camp Ripley's main gate on Sunday, September 20. The peace vigil is scheduled to last from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. Vigil participants are welcome to arrive early or stay after the main vigil because a continuous vigil will be held outside Camp Ripley's main gate from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m., the time Camp Ripley hosts Open House Day. Signs are available for vigil participants.

Camp Ripley is located at 15000 Highway 115, north of Little Falls. Vigil participants can park along the right of way.

The peace vigil seeks to increase public awareness about Camp Ripley's drone facility and the devastation drone warfare causes. The vigil's pro-peace message will counter the pro-war propaganda Camp Ripley spreads at Open House Day. The peace vigil will demand an end to drone bombings, the immediate withdrawal of all U.S. forces from Afghanistan and Iraq, and an end to the U.S. bombing of Iraq, Syria, and Afghanistan. The vigil will call for an end to the U.S. backed Saudi war on Yemen. The vigil supports peaceful resolutions to the civil wars in Iraq, Syria, and Yemen. The vigil supports the international agreement regulating Iran's nuclear energy program.

A potluck lunch will be held at Morrison County Park (Belle Prairie Park) after the peace vigil. Morrison County Park is located off Highway 76, north of Little Falls. See map. Everyone is welcome to attend the peace vigil and potluck lunch. Please join us.
