March 26, 2003
VFP member S. Brian Willson is interviewed by the media as he kicks off a 300-calorie-per-day, open-ended fast in response to the escalation of the war in Iraq.
Members of VFP Chapter 56 and friends turn out to the Arcata Plaza to support Brian's action. Brian holds body bag to represent the many soldier and civilian casualties of war; Edilith Eckart holds up sign depicting a wounded Vietnamese girl with Brian's accompanying essay.
