Armistice Day Parade and Luncheon Saturday, November 9!

Saturday, November 9, 2019 - 10:30am

Veterans For Peace will be marching in the Armistice (Veterans) Day parade in Auburn for the thirteenth straight year this November 9! Join us!  Post-parade luncheon at Auburn First United Methodist Church, 100 N Street SE Auburn, WA 98002

We'll leave the church hall at around 11:30. It's about a 10-minute walk from the church to the parade route to muster in our contingent spot.  Then we have to wait about 45 or so minutes to actually start moving in the parade, which will take about a half hour. We will march behind the VFP banner.  We need all available VFP flags and U.S. flags for this march. Anyone is welcome to carry a flag--whatever flag they prefer.  Please do not bring any other banners or signs.
Also, a VFP van will be available for anyone who would prefer to ride through the parade.
You do NOT have to be a member of VFP to march with our contingent !
If, for whatever reason you do not march, you are welcome to hang out in the church hall--and check out The Gun Show by Cynthia Linet. After the parade it takes about 10 or 15 minutes to walk back to the church for our Luncheon and Program.
The Luncheon Menu:  --Please RSVP if you plan to join the Luncheon to Pete,  endimperialism@yahoo.com  Spaghetti with a Vegan option--PLEASE specify in RSVP! Garlic Bread and Salad (Most likely) Cookies and Juice for Dessert
 
Program Agenda following the Luncheon:
Cynthia Linet's Gun Show:  For our Auburn event, Cynthia is thrilled to be invited to showcase the military aspect. The Gun Show was on display at the Seattle Center this last July, sponsored by Code Pink. This condensed version will be on display the entire time we're in Auburn; and Cynthia will also be available to answer any questions you may have.
Pio DeCano:  Pio is a longtime prominent activist in the Seattle Filipino community and is a longtime continuously engaged member of Chapter 92; and he has agreed to share his story.

His best known songs include "Fireside", his first song, written in 1967, Hiroshima Nagasaki Russian Roulette", an anti-nuclear weapons song from his 1976 album "On the Street Again"
Jim is also a longtime member of VFP92 and we are excited that Jim has agreed to come and sing for us!

Veterans Want Peace, Not War with Iran!

Monday, June 24, 2019 - 10:15pm

 

Veterans For Peace firmly opposes U.S. attempts to increase tensions in the Persian Gulf and create the conditions for war against Iran.
The U.S. has  created ongoing tensions with Iran by leaving the Iran Nuclear Deal, by imposing punishing economic sanctions, and by making questionable accusations against Iran.  Veterans know firsthand how dangerous lies and exaggerations can lead the American public into war.
It is imperative that the U.S. immediately begins seeking diplomatic solutions to conflicts instead of creating pretexts for war.  Veterans For Peace calls on the U.S. to:
Draw down all its military forces from the Persian Gulf
End its economic war against Iran, lifting sanctions immediately
Re-join the six-country Iran Nuclear Deal
End the 2001 Authorization of Use of Military Force (AUMF) that administration after administration has used to fund military expeditions around the globe under the guise of fighting the Islamophobic “War on Terror”
We know firsthand the futility of war.  And the lies. We believe the days of war and conquest must come to an end.  We believe in the sovereignty of all nations and human rights for all people. The last thing we want to see is another war in the Middle East or anywhere, especially given that the U.S. is already engaged in failed warfare in multiple places around the globe.
As veterans who have been involved in too many illegal wars, we are convinced that a U.S. attack against Iran would be a violation of U.S. law and international law. We call on all who are in the U.S. military to consider your situation carefully and conscientiously. We will support GI’s who refuse to obey illegal orders or who protest against endless illegal U.S. wars.
Veterans for Peace is sick of the lies, the massacres of innocent people, the waste of our national resources, and the deaths and injuries to our own soldiers. We will organize maximum resistance to the continuing U.S. policy of military aggression. We want peace - not war - with the people of Iran.
