Stand Up For Peace! Stop These Wars!
JOIN US: Thursday, December 16, 2010, Noon – 2PM
Veterans For Peace (VFP) national president Mike Ferner sent a letter to President Obama on December 3, stating
“We will come in person to the White House to meet with you or until we are dragged away in full view of our nation and the world – military veterans, carrying their nation’s flag, seeking a meeting with their President in the season of peace. We are taking a stand for peace. The troops, mercenaries and drones must come home now!“
