OLD TOWN, Maine (NEWS CENTER) -- A peace walk calling on government to prevent weaponized drone testing in Maine made it's way from Old Town to Bangor Saturday.

Around 30 people participated in the peace walk that hopes to raise awareness about the use of Spy Drones and the possibility of a testing sight organizers say would be built in the northern part of the state.

"We're really bringing the message to a lot of people across the state," said walk organizer, Bruce Gagnon.

The walk started in Limestone and will spend the month continuing until it finishes in Brunswick on October 18th. The same day participants plan on holding a rally at the state capital on the issue of drones. Ilze Petersons led Saturdays part of the walk.

"We're saying no to drones and yes to peaceful priorities," said Petersons.

The walk will continue Sunday morning, starting around 8:30 am on it's way from Bangor to Skowhegan.
