Erik Prince to speak at Beloit College

Date: Wednesday, March 27th, 2019 Time: 7:30 pm. Location: Moore Lounge, 
Pearsons Hall, 700 College St, Beloit, WI

Erik Prince is the former CEO of Blackwater and the subject of Jeremy Scahill's book Blackwater: The Rise of the World's Most Powerful Mercenary Army.

Medhi Hasan presents a great indictment of Prince and Blackwater in this program.

Respect the man's right to speak, but be prepared to defend the right of decent people to also speak and question this man's motives.


The Face of the War In Yemen

The war in Yemen has created the world’s worst man-made humanitarian disaster. Eight million people are at risk of starvation including 400,000 children under the age of five.

To bring attention to the this tragedy, the New York Times published this photo on their front page.  The photo is graphic.  It will shock you.  But this is what it was meant to do.


Armistice Day Peace Vigil

November 11, 2018 at 11 AM.  It was cold and blustery, but a few hardy people held a vigil on Milton Avenue to remind people that this day was originally called Armistice day, a day to hold events promoting peace among all nations.

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.
