Not another Dollar! Not another Death!
55-Mile “Long Walk” to Carlisle US Army War College
● Members of the Lancaster Coalition for Peace & Justice will be walking 55 miles from Lancaster, PA to Carlisle, PA
● Join us and tell the U.S. Military to bring the war dollars home and to put an end to the death and destruction of war.
● Marchers will depart from downtown Lancaster on Saturday at 10:30am, helping Gold Star father, Bill Adams, carry a coffin representing his son, SFC Brent Adams, who was KIA on 12/1/05 in Ramadi, Iraq. The coffin will be delivered to the War College on Sunday March 26th to be followed by a rally at approximately, 2-4pm, exact time to be announced.
● We will also stand in solidarity with the indigenous peoples movements at the burial site of the Carlisle Indian Industrial School (which later became the US Army War College) to pay respects to the Native American children whose lives were taken at this institution.
Please join up and walk with us along our route, come out to cheer us on along
the way, or travel by car and meet us in Carlisle!
● When: Departing from Lancaster on Friday, March 25th at 10:30am / Rally at Carlisle Army War College on Sunday March 27th at approximately 2-4pm, exact time will be announced.
● Where: US Army War College, Carlisle, PA - specific location TBA
● Why: the month of March marks the eight year of the US invasion of Iraq. Walking
55 miles is a small action on our part to raise awareness to the countless lives lost in war, the returning troops who do not receive adequate care, and the US dollars being misspent on death and destruction.
Anyone interested in joining us for any leg of our journey, please contact Bill Adams at Badams@gmail.com or Jennie Leary at sewforvictory@gmail.com
We will travel from Lancaster through Elizabethtown, Middletown, Harrisburg, Camp Hill, and Mechanicsburg.
Overnight accommodations are being made for walkers, so please RSVP by March 11th if you wish to walk with us.
"We need to decide that we will not go to war, whatever reason is conjured up by the politicians or the media, because war in our time is always indiscriminate, a war against innocents, a war against children."
~Howard Zinn
