Join Maine Veterans for Peace as we walk across the state in order to engage the public about the need to end the war in Afghanistan (now costing us over $8 billion a month), promote social progress, take care of veterans when they come home (suicides are at an all ti me high among Iraq/Afghan war vets), and discuss the impact on our environment from endless war.
Each night local hosts will organize a potluck supper, an educational program, and make sleeping arrangements for the walkers.
Walk for an hour, a day, or for the entirety. The walk will conclude with Veterans for Peace participating in the November 11 Veterans Day parade in Portland.
The peace walk will be led by Buddhist monks/nuns from the Nipponzan Myohoji order.
