Vigils for Ceasefire – Candlelight and indoors at Senator Baldwin’s office

December 19, 2023 @ 4:30 pm - 5:30 pm CST

Free

This afternoon at 4:30, join us if you can for a ceasefire candlelight vigil in front of Tammy Baldwin’s office.

This week, we are continuing the daily vigils to ask Tammy to act.  We will be inside her office 11 am – 4 pm daily, talking with her staff, making music, reading names of the dead, poems, stories, statements, articles, being silent, and whatever else people are inspired to offer.

Monday – Friday, Dec 18 – 22, from 11 am – 4 pm
Senator Baldwin’s office

30 W Mifflin St, 7th floor

 

Can you be part of the vigil? Scroll down for details and to sign up.

On the schedule so far –

  • Tuesday – 12 noon – Phil reads news articles
  • Wednesday – 11 am – Rebecca, Christa and Karen read and sing
  • 12 noon – Clare sings and Phil reads news articles of recent events
  • Thursday – 11 am – Phil reads news articles
  • 12 noon – Jane reads children’s stories and the names of Palestinian children who have died in the Genocide.
  • Stefania plans to use the famous text by Pastor Martin Niemoeller that goes “First they came for the Socialists, and I did not speak out, because I was not a Socialist.” Niemoeller is a controversial character, but those lines are prescient; she plans to develop an argument around that theme.

Please show up when you can, and / or pick a time slot to lead (on your own or with a friend or two). Sign up to lead here, and drop us a note here with some words describing your plan.  Feel free to sign up even if others are in a time slot; several people can share an hour.

We’ll post the day’s vigil schedule each morning on our website Events Calendar here.  The front doors are locked, so when you arrive you can wait for someone to go in or out, or call us to come open the door — Stefania 608-217-2248, Tim 608-630-3633 and Janet 608-228-9096.

Thank you,
Stefania and Janet, warabolition@gmail.com
