Veterans For Peace calls for the immediate withdrawal of the Minnesota National Guard. We are appalled to see military weapons, vehicles and equipment once again deployed in U.S. cities to control community members who are reacting to a long history of state-sanctioned violence.

Memorial Mile 2020 canceled

From Scott Camil and VFP Chapter 14:


Dear Friends,

We have decided to cancel the 2020 Memorial Day Weekend Memorial Mile Display because of the CoronaVirus.

Sherry and I have been in self Quarantine since March 13th and we are doing fine.

We know of no one in our VFP family, Sierra Club family, volleyball family, Charter Review family or political family that has the CoronaVirus.

We don’t know when the Coronavirus curve will start to dissipate.  We have many volunteers that are above age 60.
We can’t meet in person to get the preparation work done, and we can’t maintain social distancing while setting up the display.
