During the Campaign Nonviolence Week of Actions on September 20th, organizers with the Members of Alliant Action (a group originally formed to protest weapons manufacturer Alliant Tech Systems, which moved to the D.C. area), joined Little Falls Occ-U-PIE and Brainerd Area Coalition for Peace in a nonviolent action at Camp Ripley.

Camp Ripley (established 1856) near Little Falls, Minnesota, is the largest military training base in the Midwest. Soldiers are trained at Camp Ripley to operate Shadow Drones, which are weaponized and, according to Camp Ripley Range Regulations, currently are used for bombing.
