CNV Camden, NJ Speaks out for Peace and the Climate!

Posted by Ryan Hall

The Peace Community at Sacred Heart in Camden, NJ held an event titled The Right to Peace and Environmental Justice on 9/21/14

A support rally in Camden, NJ for Peace Day Philly/International Day of Peace and the People’s Climate March with speakers and folk singing on 9/21/14 from 12:30-1:30. Speaking were Father Michael Doyle (former member of the Camden 28), Pastor of Sacred Heart Church, Camden, Mark Doorley, Center For Environmental Transformation at Sacred Heart and Villanova University, Bob Smith, Brandywine Peace Community, Linda Hayes, Alexis Saenz, and Jackie Agostini of the Peace Community at Sacred Heart, Camden. Finally, Tom Mullian, song writer and performer, played and sang folk songs. About 60 people attended, not all at the same time, due to a conflicting event in the church that people were also trying to attend. We are in touch with the editor of the Catholic Star Herald who says he will do an article afterwards as he had no photographer available. We are sending him photographs. We will complete our activities for CNV by joining an on-going final Saturday of the Month demonstration at Horsham Air Base where a drone command center is being built.

The rally received news coverage in the Catholic Star Herald, you can read the report here.
