San Diego Chapter Says NO to Miramar Air Show

September 26, 2016

Chapter members and friends of the San Diego Veterans For Peace will be “bannered” above the I-15 at the Carroll Canyon Road exit September 22-25, encouraging the public to stay home from this weekend’s Miramar Air Show.

Each year, San Diego hosts the giant Miramar Air Show, which is attended by up to 500,000 people.  This air show is typical of many other air shows around the country in that it attempts to glorify and glamorize war and militarism, as well as being an excellent opportunity for defense contractors and the overall military industrial complex to sell products which lead to the deaths and injuries of so many people.  The San Diego Veterans For Peace, with veteran members of all five services, is opposed to these “war shows” asked the public to stay home and to provide more wholesome entertainment for their children and families than the Miramar Air Show provides.
