JIM PAGE IN CONCERT benefit for local VETERANS FOR PEACE
JIM PAGE CONCERT TO BENEFIT SEATTLE VETERANS FOR PEACE!
Saturday--November 19, 8PM----Doors open at 7:00
Seattle Public Theater at the Greenlake Bathhouse
After Seattle Jim Page's super sold out 40th Anniversary Concert in June of this year lots of fans and friends said "Hey Jim---Let's do another concert at this great theater!"
In the meantime, the Seattle Chapter of Veterans For Peace has stepped up their efforts to promote peace and to raise public awareness of the true costs of war---and to seek peaceful effective alternatives. More about the local efforts of VFP can be found at: www.vfp92.org
Jim Page has performed well over 2000 concerts in Seattle alone. A big chunk of these have benefitted deserving organizations. He's made hundreds of friends, many of whom he considers his Seattle family. Jim and Veterans For Peace invite you to come and share in the music and learn more about the valuable work of Veterans For Peace.
AND --- Jim has new songs and new renditions of old favorites to share. Special guest are to be announced.
Please spread the word to help fill the house!

VETERANS FOR PEACE Statement of Purpose:
We, having dutifully served our nation, do hereby affirm our greater responsibility to serve the cause of world peace. To this end we will work, with others:
(a) Toward increasing public awareness of the costs of war
(b) To restrain our government from intervening, overtly and covertly, in the
internal affairs of other nations
(c) To end the arms race and to reduce and eventually eliminate nuclear weapons
(d) To seek justice for veterans and victims of war
(e) To abolish war as an instrument of national policy.
To achieve these goals, members of Veterans For Peace pledge to use non-violent means and to maintain an organization that is both democratic and open with the understanding that all members are trusted to act in the best interests of the group for the larger purpose of world peace.
We urge all people who share this vision to join us.
TRUTH IN RECRUITING:
The purpose of this effort will be to counter weight the pervasive and well funded effort of the Department of Defense to recruit soldiers from high schools into the U.S. military. Currently the U.S. spends over $4 billion and uses over 14,000 recruiters to enlist students into the military using information that is full of half truths and omissions.
Often recruiters use threats and intimidation to keep student signed up in the Delayed Entry Program from exercising their right to exit this program. Using incomplete information of the GI Bill, bonuses, inflated claims of training and phony appeals to patriotism, recruiters continue to enlist young and uninformed students into the military.
This action team will bring a VFP presence into the schools to provide information about the military, war and militarism to students who could soon be in literally a kill or be killed situation. The action team will use a program of pairing experienced volunteers with newer members, providing hand out information and training in issues related to this effort. VFP will work with other groups also involved in the schools.
