Anti-War demonstration 5th & Roosevelt in Maywood [M]

Voices for Creative Nonviolence is organizing an anti-war walk from Springfield to North Chicago. Here's the schedule and route.

Here's the reason for the walk:
Walk for Justice

Join Voices for Creative Nonviolence this summer as we challenge the wars in Iraq and Israel-Palestine and the criminal injustice system in Illinois.

For 30 days we will walk through our country’s heartland, calling for:

* An end to the U.S. occupation of and war in Iraq, with the immediate withdrawal of all members of the U.S. military from Iraq.
* No military action against Iran. No punitive economic sanctions which harm Iranian citizens.
* Quality health care and benefits for veterans whom our country chose to place in harms way-and quality health care for all living in the U.S.

The walk will be in Proviso Township on Thursday (tomorrow).
4:30 to 6:30 p.m. — Hines VA Vigil, Kathy Kelly and the Voices Walkers, 5th and Roosevelt Rd, Maywood. followed by a potluck barbeque and swim at 203 Parkview, Riverside, IL
