On the Move to End Violence in Erie, PA

By Janice Etchison

On Sept. 26th Organizers in Erie, PA gathered for the Campaign Nonviolence Week of Actions for an event called On the Move.  They started with four feeder marches moving from the north, south, east and west points, all meeting at Griswold Plaza located in the center of the city. Each feeder march represented a specific topic – peace, nonviolence in our city, an end to fracking (our NW PA location is a favorable location for fracking), an end to crude oil trains (bomb trains) traveling through cities (35 such trains pass through the center of Erie each week).

Participants included all ages, races, and religions. Between 150 – 200 people met in the park. We had excellent media coverage too. It was a joyous day!!

See a great reflection and video from this action on the Benedictine Sisters website, plus see the TV coverage of their event by clicking here.
