Wednesday, September 6, 2017

(Spanning the river between Minneapolis and St. Paul)

The organizers of a weekly peace vigil on the Lake Street Marshall Ave Bridge between Minneapolis and St. Paul have issued a call for the Wednesday, September 6th vigil to speak out against the growing danger of a U.S. war in Korea. The vigil lasts from 5:00 to 6:00 PM

Those participating  will hold signs and banners speaking out against a new U.S. war.

A statement issued by organizers says in part, “The war crisis in Korea remains at a boiling point, the Trump Administration is making unhinged threats of war. Reports are that more U.S. military forces are being sent to Korea, including an additional aircraft carrier.

The statement goes on to say, “There is a proposal to avert war and start talks, “freeze for freeze.” in which North Korea suspends its nuclear and missile testing in exchange for halting or scaling back these massive U.S.-South Korean military exercises and for an a peace treaty to formally end the Korean War.”

“There is a real danger of a new U.S. war, everyone opposed must speak out. The weekly vigil is one way to speak out against war,” the statement said.

The vigil is sponsored by End War Committee of Women Against Military Madness and the Twin Cities Peace Campaign.  Endorsed by the Anti-War Committee.
