Another Broken Treaty Vigil 

The Trump Administration appears to be on track to abandon the Iran Nuclear agreement.  If we do so, we will do it alone without the support of the United Kingdom, Russia, France, and China and Germany who partnered with us to develop the agreement.  Iran is in compliance with the agreement.  The war drums are beating loudly again.  Washington seems to be intent on starting another war, this time in Iran.  Protest this madness before it starts. Our word seems to matter little, just as it did as our government broke more than 500 treaties signed with Native Americans.  

Join the Rock Valley Fellowship of Reconciliation to stand vigil against our Governments actions from 2 to 3 PM, Saturday May 12 on Milton Avenue in front of the U.S. Post Office.    Bring a creative sign to suit the occasion.  Two suggestions:

Donít Iraq Iran

Defend Diplomacy - Save Iran Nuclear Agreement

If it turns out that Trump chooses to support the treaty, then we will call this a celebration vigil.

Why We Vigil

We started our vigil in November of 2002 just before George Bush invaded Iraq.  We continue these vigils today in 2018.

Peace Vigils

Every Tuesday, 4:00 to 4:30 PM in front of Paul Ryan's constituent office, 20 South Main Street, Janesville Wisconsin, we vigil for peace.  We began this vigil in 2002 before the beginning of the Iraq war.  We have signs.  We need you to hold one. 

Also, every third Friday from 4:00 to 4:30 PM on Milton Avenue at the corner of Randolph Road in front of the post office in Janesville, we vigil for peace.  For more information click on Events Calendar on the left.
