Several members of Veterans For Peace, Inc are leaving Humboldt County on the "Spirit of Garberville" Peace Bus, heading cross country to the National VFP Convention in Boston. The National Peace bus tour will help bring pressure on the Democrats to adopt a peace plan in the Demo platform in July and bring attention to the issues veterans and non veterans have.

VFP Members:

Fredy Champagne, Garberville CA
Sherry Champagne, Garberville CA
Walter Wood, Garberville CA
Gordon Soderberg, Eureka CA
Patrick Tate, Willits CA
Joe Cernac, San Jose CA
Dennis Kyne, San Jose, CA

Tour Locations:

July 29th Chicago IL,
July 30th , Minneapolis MN,

At each stop along the way, local chapters of Veterans For Peace will host the Peace bus and invite supporters and local media to come out and meet the VFP members on the Bus. We want the hosting VFP chapters to help the trip by using our poster, press releases, and related information to raise funds locally. This money will be used to support the trip and related documentary productions.

VFP members will act as interviewers as well as interviewees during the Roadtrip by using a few laptop computers, digital still and video cameras and the Internet. They will interview other vets, family members, and the general public about the war in Iraq, the use of depleted uranium weapons,
torture to get information, and the patriot act. They will also be available for interviews by media.

The goals of this Roadtrip are to raise awareness of the true costs of war and to bring the information gathered to the National Convention of Veterans For Peace. The trip will be documented on the VFP National Website http://www.veteransforpeace.org and in a documentary Video/DVD that will be produced after the trip by Gordon Soderberg and used to raise money for VFP National and Local Northern California chapters.

For more information about the roadtrip, vfp members, and the documentary project contact Gordon Soderberg mailto:gordonsoderberg@mac.com or visit the website http://www.veteransforpeace.org (click on the Bus picture).
