Walk for Freedom Update and Schedule

Ken and Tarak are well into their walk from Limerick to Galway. Some of our friends in Galway Alliance Against War joined them on Monday at Shannon and they walked about 12km. They are in good form despite being stuck here for 6 months. Virgin media news spent an hour filming them on Monday; they have done a few radio interviews on the road with community stations. And the Irish Examiner met them in Ennis and made a podcast. 

Our friends in GAlway Alliance against War reminded us that their walk from Galway Crystal on Monday at 12.30 needs a good turnout. Please spread the word they say!

A granddaughter of Ken's will hand in a letter for Varadkar and Flanagan at the US consulate in New York at 10am tomorrow. The press release is already out to the media both in Ireland and the US. 

Below are links to a short video, an excellent article entitled 'No Country For Old Men: Two US Veterans And Peace Activists Go MIA in Ireland' and the walking schedule.
