Kalamazoo and our State of Michigan have some amazing Challenges we are the 6th meanest city in the Nation to the homeless and recently had yet another homeless person freeze to death unnamed and unreported. 11% of our middle school has access to heroin. We also have Big Oil and Gas coming through with a Pipeline that rivals Keystone in size. Our State of Michigan is at the hands of corporate government; government push through an astounding 96% of legislation in illegal procedure. Gas Fracking , corruption, and environmental exploitation thrive here as we frack, and dig for tar sand pipeline’s and poison 20% of the entire world’s fresh water supply. Gun shootings go unreported, and criminalization is passively allowed.
Please join us for an eventful time, filled with speakers, work shops and celebration in Kalamazoo, Michigan.
The Michigan Voice wants to thank all those who have spent many months of hard work to put this event on the map. It’s time to Ride the Peace Train and spread the Love.
