Tues., Sept. 24 -----ANTI-ROTC VIGIL AND NONVIOLENT ACTION AT M.U.. The Pace e Bene Campaign Nonviolent Action Week is September 14-22, but we want to have an action, like last year due to its symbolic interest. M.U, which calls itself a Christian university, has received 52 military contracts worth over $19 million dollars between 2000 and 2018. It continues to teach our youth violence as a tool to gain more power and wealth in the world in defiance of Christ’s teaching of love for one’s enemies AND doing good to those who harm us. We will meet at noon at the M.U. Library on 14th & Wisconsin Ave. We will ask the students if they want war or peace.
