"STANDING OUR GROUND"

Amherst College, Amherst Massachusetts

The plenary focused on current issues of military recruitment, globalization and money, all of which can be connected in the big picture.  Raul Matta and Jo Comerford of the American Friends Service Committee and the Western Massachusetts Military Recruitment Education Network spoke about current local and national efforts to educate communities about the realities of military service and its alternatives. They explored the ways in which community members can be powerful allies in this process.

The Friday concert included Emma's Revolution, Kim & Reggie Harris, Roy Brown, Tom Neilson, Jay Mankita, and Ethan Miller & Kate Boverman.

Here are some of the many pictures from the gathering.
