Fort McCoy Arrests on Peace Walk

that 9 protesters were arrested at Fort McCoy as part of the 2009 Walk For Peace.

We gathered to start the walk on the Aug. 6th, on the eve of the Hiroshima observance - as a witness against the use of nuclear weapons and depleted uranium - the occupation of Iraq - the use of the National Guard in foreign wars of aggression - the occupation of Afghanistan and the escalation of troops in Afghanistan - the air war being waged in Pakistan.  To get more information - contact Jeff Leys at Voices for Creative Nonviolence - . Other WNPJ groups involved with the Walk include Madison Pledge of Resistance, Nukewatch, Juneau County Peace Committee, Rapids Citizens for Peace.
