VFP and Michael Brown/Ferguson/militarization

The main focus of VFP is to abolish war.   People are incited into war (as a solution to conflict) based on fear, and superiority.  War can be abolished (like slavery was) when people join together as equals - thereby reducing fear and superiority.   By joining in the demonstrations against police violence, police militarization, and racial profiling, we, as VFP, are working to abolish the military model of conflict resolution by violence and therefore war.

Tell Rahm Emanuel: De-Militarize CPS

Sign the Petition

Tell Mayor Emmanual to get the military out of our public schools!

CPS is the most militarized public school system in the country with over 9,000 children receiving military training. The myth is that the military teaches discipline. The reality is that the military teaches children to follow orders without question and to use the military solution to conflict resolution – that is, death and destruction.
