Salon duc Tape-Veterans at Standing Rock-January 27th

************

Don't Miss this Powerful Discussion

This past December a group of over 2,000 military veterans headed to the Standing Rock Indian Reservation in North Dakota to stand with the Souix Tribes against the Dakota Access Pipeline. With the arrival of the veterans and the media, the US Army Corp of Engineers denied the easement to drill under the Missouri River near the tribes primary water source. While many consider this a great win, the truth is much more complicated and messy. This salon will discuss the role of veterans at Standing Rock and what the current situation is. The discussion will be led by Dr. Benjamin Schrader, an Army Veteran, academic, and activist who spent a week at Standing Rock.

Salon duc Tape, a public forum sponsored by Strength Through Peace, meets on the 2nd and 4th Fridays of each month from 7:00 -- 9:00 p.m. at the Fort Collins Mennonite Fellowship, located at 300 East Oak Street. The formal program begins at 7:20. Coffee, tea, and light snacks are provided. For more information, email Strength Through Peace, or call us at 419-8944.
