DIVEST FROM THE WAR MACHINE
The Peace Coalition of Southern Illinois/FOR Monthly Vigil for Peace and Justice is re-scheduled for Saturday, February 10, Noon to 1 P.M. at the corner of Illinois Ave. and Main Street in Carbondale.
The Peace Coalition joins with a national Coalition to Divest from the War Machine, concurring that “the War Machine prioritizes “defense” and corporate interests over human rights, military spending over diplomacy and aid, preparing for combat over preventing wars, and profit over human life and the health of the planet.
The War Machine is a massive, global, U.S. military apparatus that operates largely thanks to an alliance between the arms industry and policy makers. The companies that are part of this War Machine earn their profits from the spread of war and militarism. Their priorities are not our priorities!!”
Appropriate signs will be provided, but all are invited to bring their own. The Peace Coalition Monthly Meeting will follow the Vigil at Cristaudo’s Café and Bakery.
