The 6th annual Maine Peace Walk will come to Brunswick on October 17.  Please join us in greeting the walkers with a public supper and hear these excellent speakers.

 

Panelists:

 

Joyakgol – South Korean peace activist from Jeju Island who has been working for the past 20 years to stop US base expansion in his country.  He also works to protect the endangered Indo-Pacific Bottlenose Dolphins who daily circle Jeju Island and are now threatened by the new Navy base. Destroyers built at BIW have begun to port at the new base.

Leslie Manning – Quaker activist will speak about budgets as moral documents and the need to build political support for cutting the bloated Pentagon budget.

Mary Beth Sullivan – Social worker from Bath will speak about how conversion of BIW is possible and could create more jobs by building rail, solar, wind and tidal power systems to help deal with climate change.

Ed Friedman – Local environmental activist will discuss BIW’s impact on the life in the Kennebec River.
