Occupy MN 11/11/11 Armistice and Veterans Day Vigil. Calling on Vets to stay the night
Armistice and Veterans Day Vigil
Posted on November 9, 2011 by Ghost
Overnight Bivouac for Peace by Veterans on 11/11/11

Sponsor: Veterans for Peace, Chapter 27

Time: Friday evening, 11/11/11, from 6:00pm to 6:00am the next morning
Location: Occupy Minnesota, Peoples Plaza (Hennepin County Government Center Plaza at 5th St S between 3rd and 4th Aves S)

Statement of Purpose: Eleven or more veterans will stand silent watch overnight on the Minneapolis occupation.

Minnesota site:
To honor Armistice Day/Veterans Day, a day designated to memorialize the end of
World War I and the sacrifice of veterans.
To connect the dots that link our imperial wars as the root causes of our countrys
debilitating domestic problems.1 The military-industrial-media complex bears increasing
responsibility for our growing economic inequity, chronic joblessness and union bashing,
defunded public education and public services, decaying public infrastructure, the assault
on the environment, the health care debacle, and the hijacking of our democracy by the
rich and powerful.
To stand in solidarity with the Occupy MN movement and with Scott Olson, an Iraq
war veteran and Veterans for Peace member who incurred a brain injury by police as he
peacefully demonstrated at the Occupy Oakland site.

Public invitation: We invite the public to join us and help foster a quiet atmosphere and somber reflection on the costs of war.

Program Friday evening from 8:00 pm to 9:00 pm:
Tolling of the bell
Speakers and music
Keynote speaker at 8:50 pm: Jack Nelson-Pallmeyer, University of St. Thomas professor
and author of 12 books

Come join us for an hour or all night!
