Veterans For Peace members are joining the upcoming “Veterans Stand For Standing Rock” mobilization happening December 4th -7th. Many of our members will stand together with veterans from all over the U.S. who are converging to Standing Rock in support of the Native-led non-violent resistance to stop the building of the Dakota Access Pipeline (DAPL).
This action is not organized or sponsored by Veterans For Peace but many members are on their way to support the call to veterans to mobilize in support of Standing Rock. Veterans For Peace supports any solidarity efforts towards the indigenous resistance at Standing Rock.
Veterans are staging at Fort Yates on December 4th.
For more information about Veterans For Peace at Standing Rock and helpful resources, check out our Standing Rock page.
The Veterans For Peace board of directors and staff offer our deepest sympathies upon hearing of the death of our dear brother John Heuer on November 15th, 2016 after a long illness.
John was past president of Eisenhower Chapter 157 (North Carolina’s Triangle Area) and past secretary of the national board of directors. John served for four years on the board until health issues caused him to resign this past October. <To Read Full Tribute>
John's passing marked an outpouring of love and support on Facebook in remembrance of his life. Read some of the many tribute messages.
The Heuer family is planning a memorial celebration of John's life following the holidays. <John's Obituary>
