Longest Walk 5 - Declaring War On Drugs 2016

He's Back - at 79 years young, Dennis Banks of the American Indian Movement

is leading another march across the USA: LONGEST WALK 5 - American Indian

Movement Declaring War On Drugs. The LW5 walkers & runners will cover a

route from California to Washington, D.C. in about 5 months. Starting February

13, 2014 LW5 departed from La Jolla Shores Beach near San Diego on the Pacific

Coast. Actor Saginaw Grant, 81 years young, joined-in giving a speech, and

then walking a few miles despite recent surgery on his leg.

Dennis Banks and Harry Kindness walked this very route back in 2011 with

LONGEST WALK 3 - Reversing Diabetes. Dennis is now in great health, and has

managed his diabetes well after suffering a heart attack in 2010.

On this Opening Day of Longest Walk 5, the runners ran stretches of road, and

the walkers accounted for the other miles on the map to San Pasqual Reservation

northern San Diego County. The group will rest overnight at San Pasqual, then

visit Rincon, Pala, and overnight at Pechanga Reservation. Next they will march

to Soboba, and then Morongo where they will rest 2 days. Many of the runners

and walkers are veterans of A.I.M. events, having run, walked, or marched many

times over their lives. More info is at www.TheLongestWalk.com also on

Facebook look for LW5 Pages and LW5 Groups for each state the route passes

through.
