Walking for Peace and Planet, Justice and Democracy
All over the world, there has been a long and illustrious history of groups, large and small, who have walked for peace and justice. Here are just a few of the many peace walks that have inspired us. There have also been some amazing and very dedicated individuals who walked thousands of miles for peace. Let’s start.
History is Still Unfolding
The history of peace walks is still unfolding. On April 27th 2024 Veterans For Peace and other peace and justice organizations will begin a walk of 650 miles from Augusta, Maine to Washington DC to demand our right to live with out fear of nuclear armageddon and that the U.S. sign onto and be in accordance with The Treaty on the Prohibition of Nuclear Weapons. We will be walking to affirm that people’s rights to food, clean water, homes, decent jobs, education and medical care must take priority over the huge sums going to manufacture weapons of war and to the military. We will share information of how war and militarism is the prime force directly damaging the climate and environment we depend upon for life. We will be walking for a green and sustainable planet and for communities everywhere.
