National Mobilization to Peacefully Stop U.S. Drone Wars
September 29 - October 5, 2019
(Sunday through Saturday)
Special theme: This October will be the 18th Anniversary of the War on Afghanistan. We will commemorate that event and stand in solidarity with the Afghan people and their right to live without U.S. occupiers. We also deeply hope that by the time our fall action approaches, we will NOT be at war with yet another country, Iran.
Nonviolent civil resistance planned for Wednesday, Oct. 2, with preparation & planning taking place on Mon. & Tues., Sept. 30 & Oct. 1. Please look carefully at the week's scheduled program, as you plan your trip. But if you can only participate for a few days, we recommend arriving by late Mon. night and departing in the morning or afternoon on Thurs: Sept. 30 to Oct. 3.
Peaceful vigils daily, Monday - Friday, Sept. 30 - Oct. 4, during rush hour commute times. 6:30 - 8:30 am and 3:30 - 5:30 pm. On Friday, there will only be a morning vigil, and we will have closing activities in the afternoon. All departures will take place by Saturday morning, at the latest.
Thousands of cars enter and exit at commute times, and we will stretch ourselves out along Highway 95 with large signs, banners and other visuals/props throughout the week. We are developing vigil themes that will vary each day and we welcome any creative ideas for themes or offerings of help to make visuals & props. .
A pledge to nonviolence guidelines and participation in nonviolence training, if needed, is required for full participation.
Activists who can only participate in part of the week's activities are urged to arrive by the evening on Monday, Sept. 30, so we will all be together on Tuesday to make final preparations for a large peaceful civil resistance action on Wednesday.
