Camp Ripley Open House Protest

  • Camp Ripley 15000 Minnesota 115 Little Falls, MN, 56345 United States (map)

Join us at the Camp Ripley Peace Vigil on Sunday, September 15 from 10:00 am to 2:00 pm. While Camp RIpley is holding its annual Open House to promote itself as a good neighbor, allowing families to explore a humvee, tank & helicopter display, we will be saying:

NO! to Police Militarization
NO! to Drone Terror Warfare
NO! to Increased Military Spending

After the peace vigil ends at 2 p.m., an informal discussion and potluck meal will be held in Morrison County Park (Belle Prairie Park). Morrison County Park is located south of Camp Ripley, off of Highway 76.  An informal celebration of life will be held at the potluck to honor Theresa Skorseth, a BACP member and dedicated peace activist who joined many Camp Ripley peace vigils and other BACP events.  Theresa passed away on March 21 after a long illness.

Sponsored by Brainerd Area Coalition for Peace, Veterans for Peace Chapter 27 and Women Against Military Madness.
