[SDCPJ] Fwd: NEWS ADVISORY: Local veterans encourage the public to stay home from the Miramar Air Show




Subject: NEWS ADVISORY:  Local veterans encourage the public to stay home from the Miramar Air Show

NEWS ADVISORY
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
LOCAL SAN DIEGO VETERANS CONTINUE TO PROTEST THE WORTH OF THE ANNUAL SEPTEMBER MIRAMAR AIR SHOW
Summary:
Chapter members and friends of the San Diego Veterans For Peace will be "bannering" above the I-15 at the Carroll Canyon Road exit again this Thursday, August 17th,  as well as future Thursdays prior to the air show, from 3:30 PM to 5:30 PM, against the continuation of the annual September Miramar Air Show, and to encourage the general public to stay home. 
Who:    Chapter members and friends of the San Diego Veterans For Peace, the local chapter of the national Veterans For Peace organization.
When:      Thursday, August 17th, 2017 and future Thursdays prior to the September 22-24 air show
Where:      Carroll Canyon Road overpass along the I-15
Why:      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 on earth. 
The San Diego Veterans For Peace, with veteran members of all five services, is opposed to these "war shows" and is asking the public to stay home and to provide more wholesome entertainment to their children and families than the Miramar Air Show provides.  As part of this educational outreach, veterans will be located with banners on the Carroll Canyon Road overpass of I-15 from 3:30 PM to 5:30 PM on each Thursday just prior to the air show. 
The press and the public are invited to join the San Diego Veterans For Peace on the Carroll Canyon Road overpass each Thursday.
For more information or for veteran interviews, please contact David Patterson, US Air Force veteran, at 760-207-9139 or at DPatterson998@yahoo.com.
