Saturday, October 24, 2020, 1:00 to 2:30 p.m.

Brainerd Area Coalition for Peace (BACP) and the Brainerd United Church of Christ (UCC) will hold a vigil for refugee and immigrants' rights on Saturday, October 24. The vigil will be held at the intersection of Sixth and Washington Streets, Brainerd near the Sawmill Inn. The vigil is scheduled to last from 1 to 2:30 p.m. Vigil participants will meet at the vigil site. Signs, flags, and banners are available for vigil participants or vigil participants may bring signs to the vigil.

Vigil participants are required to wear masks and practice social distancing.

The refugee and immigrants' rights vigil is being held on Saturday, October 24, so it does not conflict with the Women's March on Saturday, October 17, at noon at Gregory Park. For more details about the Women's March, please visit Women's March for Democracy.

The vigil will demand an end to the Trump Administration's cruel and discriminatory refugee and immigration policies. The vigil will call for a just and humane immigration system. The vigil will demand an end to the U.S. wars, sanctions, and regime change operations which force people to flee their home nations. Everyone is welcome to join the refugee and immigrants' rights vigil. Please join us.

Lending Library: We have available for lending a number of resources: books, DVDs, CDs, documentaries.

Addicted to War: Why the U.S. Can't Kick Militarism takes on the most active, powerful and destructive military in the world. It tells the history of U.S. foreign wars - from the Indian Wars to the current wars in Iraq and Afghanistan. Hard-hitting, carefully documented with 161 reference notes, and heavily illustrated, this 77-page book reveals why the U.S. has been involved in more wars in recent years than any other country. Read Addicted to War to find out who benefits from these military adventures, who pays and who dies.
