SAVE THE DATE: Daniel Ellsberg's celebration of life is set for Sunday Oct. 22nd
Daniel Ellsberg's memorial will be held online on October 22nd from 1:00pm to 3:00pm PDT / 4:00pm to 6:00pm EDT. We have chosen to use Zoom so people can easily attend from wherever they are.
The loss to us is immeasurable, but we have been heartened by the tidal wave of loving messages sent by many of you, as well as by the extraordinary number of articles and tributes honoring his contributions to nuclear disarmament, peace movements, and the whistleblowers community.
We hope you will join us online on October 22 to celebrate Dan. As the date gets closer, we'll send further information about how to connect. Meanwhile, if you want to get in touch with us, please reply to "email@example.com."

There are some upsides to publishing an all-virtual issue (our first): It saves paper (and thus trees); it saves the time of printing and mailing; it allows us to publish a longer newsletter; and the hyperlinks are live!
The main downside is the chance of electronic transmissions getting lost in cyberspace... a great reason to share this newsletter with your VFP sisters and brothers as well as your wider community!
A whopping 40 pages (including an 8-page literary supplement), the news, reviews, and project and chapter reports contained in this issue reflect a vibrant Veterans For Peace with chapters and members activating for peace in so many different ways....

Chapter 27 in Minneapolis/St. Paul, MN took action for Earth Day with bannering and signs making the connection between militarism and the climate crisis. They greeted autos and pedestrians with an Earth Day message. There is no Planet B!
