Dear GVCP Member:

NEXT GVCP MEETING is SUNDAY, NOVEMBER 8th, 1:00 PM (Lunch), 1:30 PM (Meeting).  Omega Restaurant, 4182 Lakeville Road, Geneseo.

Don’t save the date: Geneseo Peace Action and GVCP will not be able to cosponsor a film about the Israel/Palestinian situation. We tried.
?This Month’s Letter:  No US troops in Syria!  President Obama has ordered U.S. Special Forces troops into Syria. This move has been compared to throwing gasoline on a fire.  Our Presidents never appear to learn.  The U.S. war in Vietnam stared with a few Special Forces troops.  In Syria what will happen will be that our troops get pinned down at some location, so they call in air strikes. Then our troops start getting wounded or killed, and the next move is “we need more troops.”  Soon, we will be in a full-scale military operation in yet another country in the Middle East.  If you are reading this on e-mail, you can go to this link: http://www.commondreams.org/news/2015/10/30/gasoline-fire-obama-orders-ground-troops-syria?utm_campaign=shareaholic&utm_medium=email_this&utm_source=email

The President, the Senate, and the House of Representatives all have websites that allow you to send electronic mail to them.

For postal mail to the President, the address is The White House, Washington DC 20500.  The Senate is 20510, and the House of Representatives is 20515.  The message to everyone is clear: WITHDRAW ALL U.S. TROOPS FROM SYRIA!

SAVE THE DATE:  Saturday, December 5th, 11:00 AM – 12:00 NOON ANNUAL GVCP “DON’T BUY WAR TOYS” DEMONSTRATION.  Bring peaceful toys to demonstrate toys that don’t encourage war and violence! DRESS WARMLY***HATS AND GLOVES***DRESS WARMLY!

Peace,

Arnie Matlin for GVCP
