Dear friends and supporters,

Yesterday Veterans For Peace Long Island (VPLI) was privileged to march in solidarity with the Iraq Veterans Against the War (IVAW) to the front gates of Hofstra University. As I am sure you are aware, the peaceful march to express concerns to the Presidential candidates was met with unprovoked violence and brutality by the Nassau County Police. Following a mounted police assault in which we all peaceably moved back from the front gate of Hofstra, the Police abusively sought out and arrested members of IVAW. Three veterans were injured in the assault and taken to local hospitals. In all fifteen demonstrators were arrested, twelve of them Iraq War veterans.

The Hempstead 15 will be arraigned on November 10, 2008 and VFPLI will be there to stand in solidarity with those who continue to sacrifice so much for our country. Please remember them in your prayers and join us to support our courageous brothers and sisters and to demonstrate to our representatives that such police brutality will not be tolerated on Long Island.

Peace and justice for the Hempstead 15.

Camillo Mac Bica
Coordinator VFPLI

More to follow. There are some pictures posted on someone’s AOL site. Some are graphic of the blood of victims of police abuse. Here is a photo of some policemen at Hofstra: here.
