Veterans For Peace Spirit of Peace National Roadtrip

- June 8th Humboldt County California
By: Veterans For Peace member
Gordon Soderberg
707 268-3883

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 9th Garberville CA
July 9th San Francisco CA
July 10th, Santa Monica CA
July 12th, Albuquerque NM,
July 12th North Texas TX
July 13th, Kansas City KS
July 14th St Louis MO,
July 15th, Indiapolis IN
July 16th, Pittsburg PA
July 17th, Washington DC,
July 18th, Philadelphia PA,
July 19th New York City NY,
July 19th - July 27th Boston MA,
July 28th Cleveland OH,
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 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 or visit the website (click on the Bus picture).

Fake Terror on Congress Last Week- Patriot II Next Week
13 Jun 2004
Last Thursday air traffic controllers guided a plane near the Reagan Memorial Event, but they did not tell the security on the ground, who thought it was a terrorist attack. Cops were screaming, "run, run run!" and had some members of Congress, the Supreme Court and even Rupert Murdoch running for their lives. 'Someone' intentionally created this terror scare for Congress- how do we know? Because the FAA spokesman was caught in an outright lie. Hundreds of people were terrorized for no reason.... well there may be a reason, but the FAA knew the plane was not a threat.

Sponsor An Activist (it might be you)
12 Jun 2004
When the Democratic National Convention (DNC) invades the city of Boston this summer (July 26-29th) our comrades will be accused of absurd and unsubstantiated charges. Regardless of the merit of the arrests, our friends will still be sitting in a jail cell as a result of these despotic acts. For months now, the Boston Anarchist Black Cross (ABC) has been actively building a fund to help provide for bail during the DNC. Today, we are asking for help in this collection.

Sibel Edmonds 911 Court Date Monday: Massive Turnout Requested
12 Jun 2004
Modified: 05:40:02 PM
An email from Sibel Edmonds:

For over two years Attorney General John Ashcroft has been relentlessly engaged in covering up my reports and investigations into my allegations. He has asserted the rarely invoked State Secret Privilege in my court proceedings, and has used it to quash a subpoena request for my deposition from attorneys representing 9/11 family members on information regarding 9/11.
