DRONES KILL INNOCENT PEOPLE
VIGIL AGAINST THE DRONES
OUTSIDE THE GATES OF CAMP WILLIAMS/VOLK FIELD
TUESDAY JANUARY 28, 2014 3:30-4:30 pm
As our government tries to cover up what is going on with the drones and tries to distract us from the crimes they are committing, it is important that we continue to stand up and speak truth to power. Though President Obama says that drones provide provision strikes only used as a last resort and are only used to kill terrorists, we know that is not true.

And so it is important that we continue our monthly vigil outside the gates of Volk Field, continuing to strengthen and grow the resistance.
This is a legal vigil where we will be standing on public property. As always, it will be solemn, remembering the victims of US government drone attacks
WORD ABOUT THE WEATHER - It could be very cold so dress warm with extra layers. If the wind chill is really low or if there is snow coming please check with Joy (608 239-4327) or Bonnie (608 256-5088) to see if the vigil will be canceled because of weather.
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. Since the wayside is closed for the winter, we will park on the side of the road.
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.
Please try to carpool. If you’re in the Madison area, we will meet in the parking lot of East Towne Mall between JC Penney and the Firestone Auto Care Store. Be there around 1:20 so we can take as few cars as possible and be on the road by 1:30.
We hope to see you at the vigil on Tuesday January 28. If you can’t come this time, mark your calendar for the 4th Tuesday of every month and join us when you can. If you have any questions please call or email Joy at 608 239-4327 or firstname.lastname@example.org or Bonnie at 608-256-5088 or email@example.com .
Joy and Bonnie
