March Peace Conference in Keene, the Shire

A 2-day Peace Conference is being held in Keene, the Shire begins today. It will involve a March from Keene State College to Central Commons (from which I am banned under threat of violence by local police) tomorrow morning. This peace rally comes at an opportune time for Keene, as the people who call themselves City Council decided to acquire a Department of Homeland Security tank for the town’s police despite overwhelming opposition from the town’s residents.

Events for this Peace Conference are free and include an Opening Ceremony for Peace, a keynote speaker, a march, classes and discussion groups, as well as music and entertainment with social justice themes. There will also be an open-mic opportunity for people to sing and speak.

For more information, contact Will Hopkins at will@nhpeaceaction.org or visit the website for the event here.
