This non-violent peace walk will be led by Buddhist monks and nuns from the Nipponzan Myohoji order. They are an order from Japan and specialize in doing peace walks all over the world.

We must push back against the expanding use of surveillance drones in the US and weaponized drones around the world that are killing many innocent people. There is much talk about bringing drones to Maine and making the Presque Isle airport a weaponized drone test center, thus our reason for starting the walk in Aroostook County. For more information:
