Caravan Through the South
As we travel from Fayetteville, NC to
the Gulf Coast area, we will stop in key military cities, in an attempt
to reach out to active duty military. Veterans For Peace, IVAW, and many individual signers of the Appeal for Redress, will travel to six
military towns in the southeastern US. In each town, we will hold an
event for active duty military personnel and their families, where we
will energetically engage them in discussions regarding the absurdity
of this war and encourage them to sign the Appeal for Redress.
