Line 5 is an aging old pipeline beneath the Straits of Mackinac. It carries light crude oil and natural gas, and is owned by the same company (Enbridge) that allowed the Kalamazoo River oil spill to occur. This pipeline poses too great of a risk to our Great Lakes. A flotilla is a large group of kayaks/kayaktivists demonstrating on the water for a cause, or calling for an action. Tribal jiimanns are invited. We will gather in a good way to create a flotilla to bring awareness to Line 5. If this pipeline breaks, it will devastate the pristine Waters of Lake Michigan for centuries. Many people are unaware of the danger that will completely change our way of life. #ShutDownLine5 #NoTunnel Bring your own kayak or rent one through Great Turtle Kayak Tours! Kayak Rental: ty@mackinackayak.com or 517-706-7791 We are accepting financial help. Please give and help us make this event successful.

Dr. Saeed Khan is a lecturer in the Department of Near Eastern and Asian Studies at Wayne St. University. "Social Media was seen as the vehicle for political and social change during the 2011 Arab Spring. Yet now, the Spring is over and a chilling, authoritarian winter has spread throughout the region. How has social media been suppressed or weaponized by anti-democratic regimes, and what is the future for what was once heralded as the vox populist for democratization? This lecture will examine the shifting sands of new technology and communication in the Middle East." - Dr. Saeed Khan

The Huntington Woods Peace, Citizenship & Education Project is planning a Celebration of International Peace Day on Saturday, September 21st at The Swords into Plowshares Gallery. It will take place from 11:00am to 2pm and it is called The Possibility of Peace – A Detroit Celebration of International Peace Day. We would love to have your participation. Please join us and represent your group by bringing a reading, a poem or a song to inspire peace. At 12 noon we will join in the Minute of Silence/Moment of Peace which is happening in each time zone, resulting in a “Peace Wave” around the world. This will be followed by further poetry readings and a ukulele sing-a-long. We will then march to Campus Martius and back or gather at the corner of Adams and Woodward to pass out literature or handouts to those passing by while displaying our peace signs
