Announcing the 3rd Annual Midwest Peace and Liberty Fest hosted by The Michigan Peace and Liberty Coalition!

The event Details, such as pricing, registration, and the start and end times are still under development but we wanted to get it posted so you can save the date: Here is what we know:

Join us for a long, laid back weekend of peace, liberty, and connection at this family friendly camping event this summer!

We will link to the web page the event is hosted on here with registration details.

We have had a great time connecting with like minded liberty lovers from the Midwest and other places far away, at the previous fests and we are excited to do it again. This time it is going to be a bit earlier in the year and we think it will allow those with kids on summer break to travel. The fest will be from the 7th through the 10th of August. A set-up crew will arrive on the 6th. Those now wishing to travel on the 7th or who want to help set up can contact us to make arrangements for an early arrival.

This year’s fest will, once again, take place at Circle Pines Center in Delton, Michigan. The location worked out great last year as it was a nice venue and we were left to ourselves the whole time. Circle Pines is a member-based education and recreation center whose mission is to teach peace, social justice, environmental stewardship and cooperation. We will have plenty of room on acres of land with rolling hills, hardwood and pine forests, meadows and a sandy beach on spring-fed Stewart Lake. There are miles of trails for hiking, diverse wildlife and an organic garden and orchard provide fresh produce.

You can expect diverse and life-enriching experiences at this year’s fest. We know how valuable free time sharing meals, conversation, and connection with a like-minded community is, and with that in mind we’ve made sure to maintain the laid back and flexible nature of last year’s festival. We are also aware that there is value in highlighting the innovative and intelligent minds the liberty community has to offer from across the Midwest. At the Spontaneous Order Tent, expect a line-up of Midwest sourced liberty enthusiasts offering talks, interactive discussions, demonstrations, and dialogues on the most pertinent issues relevant to your freedom! Last year we had many talks and they were great. There will also be opportunities for you to take the floor if you so choose. We will announce a schedule for the Spontaneous Order Tent as the event draws closer. Contact us for info about signing up to give a talk.

Truly free market exchanges will inevitably be happening throughout the weekend. We highly encourage guests to bring their offerings to contribute to the building of a bustling and robust market for everyone to enjoy. Food, handmade goods, apparel, currency exchange, and a variety of other services will be available.

If true freedom is important to you, and you’d like to contribute to the success of this event, please contact us. We will have volunteer opportunities as the fest draws nearer

Join us for a long, laid back weekend of peace, liberty, and connection at this family friendly camping event this summer! Taking place at Circle Pines Center in Delton, Michigan August 22, 23, 24, & 25. Join the Facebook event to stay in the loop on upcoming details.

Check out the write-up from last year’s 1st Annual Midwest Peace and Liberty Fest. “It all started with a couple of people sitting around saying, “We should go camping this summer.” That was in the beginning of the year. Then the idea came about to turn this into a group event. An event was created on Facebook that brought together nearly 100 campers and day visitors.”

Fest photos from last year can be found here.


No War With Syria Rally, Detroit, September 1, 2013

The MPLC conducted a No War With Syria rally/information campaign in Downtown Detroit on September 1st. With 20 people in attendance we were amazed at the positive attention we received. It was encouraging to have dozens of spectators requesting to take photos or to be featured in photos with us. Some negativity did arise, however, when local security forces informed us that the park we were in, which is open to the public, was not open to us. Undeterred, we walked 10 feet out into the street and continued passing out literature and posing for photos with park patrons. All in all, it was a very successful event which succeeded in broadening awareness of voluntaryism and promoting the message of peace in our community.

People were really getting into the message of spreading peace:

War is Hell. People really got into the idea of spreading the message of peace.

Welcome

Welcome to The Michigan Peace & Liberty Coalition‘s site!

The Michigan Peace and Liberty Coalition is founded on the philosophy of voluntaryism, or voluntarism, which holds that all human association should be voluntary. The moral principle supporting voluntarism is known as the NAP, or the non-aggression principle, which prohibits the initiation of aggressive force or coercion. The word ‘initiation’ is used here to make clear that voluntaryism does not oppose self-defense.

The Michigan Peace and Liberty Coalition is not a club, membership organization, religious group,  government or corporation. The MPLC aims to enable like-minded sovereign and peaceful individuals to find one another and establish meaningful friendships locally, while advocating the use of education, persuasion, and non-violent resistance as the primary means to bring about freedom in our lifetime.
