Join Voices for Creative Nonviolence walking from Green Bay to Marinette, Wisconsin, from September 9-15, for peace, in defense of the earth, against Saudi war crimes, and human rights violations.

The plan is to meet in Green Bay on Tuesday, September 8, walk about 55 miles to Marinette over the next four days, and spend the next Monday and Tuesday in Marinette. We will bring our nonviolent protest to the offices of Lockheed Martin and to the shipyard there. Walking though the cities of Green Bay and Marinette and the small towns and farming communities in between, we intend to speak with and listen to the local people, including the shipyard workers whose need for a livelihood is exploited by Lockheed Martin, the U.S. government and the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia.

While alternatives are being sought, most of us will be camping along the way. As well as walkers, we will need support drivers with vehicles and other helpers. Please spread the word, and let us know if you are interested in participating so we can plan logistically. We also intend to make smaller, quieter, visits to Marinette to reach out to the locals before our walk in September.
