PLEASE JOIN US TO PROTEST FLEET WEEK!
Last year during S.F. Fleet Week 2018, when the Blue Angels were flying over our bay, making loud, frightening noises and terrorizing the local animals while doing their daredevil acrobatic air displays, we sailed the bay with 3 beautiful boats decorated with messages of PEACE & NONVIOLENCE!
Help us DE-GLAMORIZE WAR, and show how beautiful PEACE is! Be an advocate for peace, and a counter presence to the glorification of war and militarism.
Won’t you join us? We need your help to make it successful:
San Francisco’s Embarcadero – Fisherman’s Wharf area
< Boats off shore with Peace Banners
< Us on shore handing out Flyers
WE’LL ALSO HAVE AT LEAST 3 “PEACE FLEET” BOATS ON THE BAY, DECKED OUT WITH BANNERS, etc.
1. Current boats are pretty full, so you will be put on a wait list, in case more boats join us.
Please contact Toby to reserve a spot on one of the boats. First come, first served.
You will hear back from Toby on Friday, Oct. 11 to confirm a seat.
Contact Toby: firstname.lastname@example.org
2. We need more boats, kayaks and other water vehicles. Do you know a sympathetic boat owner, or kayaker, who might be interested in joining our Peace Flotilla?
Please help connect us asap: email@example.com
3. Want to participate but you get sea sick on boats? We need land crew to distribute educational flyers to all the masses of onlookers who are being fooled to believe that blue angels really are angels. We say “Real Angels Don’t Drop Bombs.”
MEET AT THE ENTRANCE TO PIER 39 AT 11:30 AM ON SUNDAY the 13th TO GET FLYERS TO HAND OUT
