Statewide peace groups will gather to protest the “christening”[sic] of a Zumwalt class warship at General Dynamics’ Bath Iron Works (BIW) shipyard on the morning of Saturday, April 27. The ship will be named for President Lyndon B. Johnson, who was driven from office by anti-war protesters over his bombing of civilians during the Vietnam War.
Former VFP Board member Dan Shea and I had the honor of representing Veterans For Peace on a recent U.S./Canada peace delegation to Venezuela, organized by the U.S. Peace Council. The purpose of the delegation was to express our solidarity with the Venezuelan people and their elected government, which is resisting a multi-pronged attack from right wing oligarchs supported by the U.S. government.
