*Covering Ground to Ground the Drones* walk and speaking tour
June 8-23, 2013 Join us in this walk to protest drone warfare. We’ll be 
walking for about 2 weeks and 195 miles from the Rock Island Arsenal 
(where launch mechanisms and bomb components are manufactured) to the 
Iowa Air National Guard’s 132^nd Fighter Wing in Des Moines, the 
proposed site of a new command center where drones can be 
remotely-piloted to fly over other countries.

Tentative schedule: June 8-9 Events in Quad Cities June 10 Walk kicks 
off from Rock Island, IL June 11   Muscatine, IA June 12-13 West 
Liberty/Downey/West Branch, IA June 14 Iowa City June 15 Coralville, IA 
June 16-18 Oxford/Amana/Marengo/Ladora/Victor/Brooklyn, IA June 19 
Grinnell, IA June 20-21 Kellogg/Newton/Colfax, IA June 22-23       Des 
Moines We’ll need help in locating venues for speaking events along the 
route. We want to reach members of the public who might like to hear 
from Voices co-coordinator and activist Brian Terrell, of Maloy, IA, who 
will have just completed 6 months in prison for nonviolent civil 
resistance at a drone base, and from Kathy Kelly, who will have just 
returned from Afghanistan, where U.S. drones have tragically impacted so 
many lives. We will also need help finding places to sleep along the 
route, including churches, private homes, or, for many of those walking, 
designated campsites, where available. Please let us know if you would 
like to join in for any segment of the walk or assist the walk in any 
way as we all strive to galvanize public opinion against drone warfare. 
We welcome your emails and calls!
