STATEWIDE PROTEST OF BLUE ANGELS AIR SHOW
SATURDAY, SEPTEMBER 10th BRUNSWICK MALL TO NASB MARCH BEGINS AT 9am
The Navy's "Blue Angels" flight team will come to Naval Air Station Brunswick (NASB) to perform on the anniversary of 9-11. The event is a recruiting gimmick at a time when the military is in desperate need for more of our kids to fight in Iraq.
Maine Veterans for Peace is calling for a statewide peace march from the downtown Brunswick mall to NASB on September 10. We will begin gathering just after 8am that morning. Over 100,000 people are expected to view the expensive war promotion air show.
Navy planes from NASB routinely fly surveillance and reconnaissance missions over Iraq calling in air strikes - many of which kill innocent Iraqi civilians. At these air shows our children are taught to idolize these "gods of metal."
As we face massive social spending cuts in our state and nation, the time has come for the public to say that we must convert our huge military industrial complex to peaceful and sustainable production. Over 50% of every tax dollar now goes to fight "endless war."
Please join Veteran's for Peace on September 10 in Brunswick. Special guests will be Kathy Kelly (Voices in the Wilderness) and Cindy Sheehan (Gold Star Families for Peace).
Real angels don't drop bombs!
