Feb. 20 - Janesville, Drinking Liberally

Drinking Liberally Janesville Chapter

Share your politics while we share a pitcher at our local progressive drinking club. An informal gathering of like minded, left-leaners who may want to trade ideas, get more involved, or just enjoy each other's company.

Our monthly Drinking Liberally social will be this Wednesday evening (02/20) at 7 PM, at our usual place, The Speakeasy Lounge, downtown Janesville. It will be great to get together again.

We meet at The Speakeasy Lounge in downtown Janesville (map), 7:00 PM, on the first Wednesday day of every month.

Join us in welcoming Bonnie Block and Joy First

Bonnie Block and Joy First are long-time peace activists and between them are involved in various peace groups including Wisconsin Network for Peace and Justice, Madison Pledge of Resistance, Wisconsin Coalition to Ground the Drones and End the Wars, the National Campaign for Nonviolent Resistance and the Dane County Chapter of the United Nations Association.

They will be speaking about drone warfare and why it is a violation of human rights and international law. They will share what is happening in Wisconsin and around the nation in resistance to drone warfare and tell how individuals can get involved. They will also talk about why they engage in nonviolent civil resistance and what happens if one is arrested and goes to trial. They will talk about the principles of nonviolence and their belief that real social change will only happen through the practice of active nonviolence.
