VETERANS FOR PEACE IS APPALLED AT THE RECENT ACTIONS BY THE FBI
|CONTACT THE DEPARTMENT OF JUSTICE |
Click "Take Action" to send an email to the Department of Justice! Let them know as military veterans, we will continue to struggle to protect democracy.
The idea that the victims of these home invasions are providing "material support of terrorism" by opposing brutal U.S. foreign occupations is ludicrous. It strikes at the very heart of the freedoms that VFP members thought they were donning the uniform to defend. For those of us who sought to protect democracy from alien f orces it is particularly disheartening to watch that democracy now being eroded from within by our own government. Are we truly to believe that the FBI is all that stands between us and the terrorism of the Quakers, the Catholic Worker, Greenpeace, and People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals?
As veterans and as seekers of peace we stand in solidarity with our comrades in sister organizations who are victims of this sinister FBI action. Who knows who its next targets will be? Pressing our government to withdraw from aggressive and mindless wars should be viewed as heroic activity, not a hostile act subject to persecution.
Exposing the true costs of war.
