COUNTDOWN TO THE STATEWIDE  PROTEST/VIGIL AT BRUNSWICK

When: Saturday, Sept. 10, 2005
 
Where: March begins at Brunswick Mall,
              and ends at NASB Main Gate
 
Time: 9 A.M. (at the Mall)
 
The Event We're Protesting:
The Navy's "Blue Angels" Air Show
 
Theme of Our Protest:
"Stop the Worship of the Gods of War!"
 
On Sat., Sept. 10th, Maine Veterans for Peace will be joined by other major peace and justice groups (see list of co-sponsors below) in a massive protest:
 
. to protest the false god idolatry of the Blue Angels Air Show, whose "ooh-&-aah"performances have one purpose: to promote badly-lagging military recruitment to protest the obscene waste of American tax dollars to stage these Blue Angels' multi-million dollar extravaganzas
 
. to protest Bush's immoral, monomaniacal Iraq war -- nearly 1,900 U.S. and
  100,000 Iraqi civilians dead, at a cost of over $300 billion, and still counting
 
. to protest NASB's complicity with the war machine, providing surveillance aircraftto target ground forces, which in the end cause horrendous "collateral damage" 
 
. to challenge NASB to convert to peaceful purposes, creating good-paying high-tech/industrial jobs, making products that improve lives, not end them
 
We urge you to join us Sept. 10 in Brunswick.  Also joining us will be Kathy Kelly (Founder: Voices in the Wilderness).

REPORT ON GODS OF WAR DEMONSTRATION
PLANNING MEETING
 
VETERANS FOR PEACE PLANNING STATEWIDE DEMO
 
On September 10, Maine Veterans for Peace (VFP) will hold a statewide demonstration in Brunswick to protest the planned appearance of the Navy's "Blue Angels" flight performance team. 
Calling their action "Stop the Worship of the Gods of War!  Say No to the Blue Angels Air Show," VFP is planning a rally on the Brunswick mall to be followed by a march to the front gate of the Naval Air Station.  Over 40,000 people are expected to attend the air show thus creating the opportunity to reach with many with our anti-war message.
 
The VFP intends to concentrate on four key themes as it builds this action.  The themes are the obvious idolatry of weapons, the enormous cost of war as social spending is cut, the need for conversion of the military-industrial complex, and the military recruiting nature of the air show.
 
Peace groups in Maine are invited to join as co-sponsors of the action and are invited to the next planning meeting.  It will be held on June 25 from 2:00-5:00 p.m. at the Brunswick public library.  Call Bruce Gagnon at 729-0517 for more details.
 
 
A meeting was held in Brunswick today to plan for the Veterans for Peace demonstration set for September 10 to protest the Navy's Blue Angels Air show that will be held at the Naval Air Station Brunswick (NASB) on September 10-11.
 
The meeting was attended by Jack Bussell, Bob Lezer, John Wirtz, Peter Stewart, Dud Hendrick, Christine DeTroy and Bruce Gagnon.
