      Vieques en solidaridad con comunidades en Virgina opuestas a actividades de
      la Marina

      El "Sonido de la Libertad" ... Así los pro militares describían el sonido de
      los aviones de la Marina de Guerra de EU que sobrevolaban el pueblo de
      Vieques durante décadas en maniobras y prácticas de bombardeo aquí. Nos
      gritaban 'comunistas', a todos los que nos oponíamos a la presencia y
      actividad belica estadounidense. Ahora: ¿cómo se llamarán a estos
      estadounidenses del estado de Virginia opuestos al uso de sus tierras, su
      aire y espacios históricos por parte de la Marina estadounidense? ¿Serán
      comunistas, también? Claro que no. Son comunidades que defienden el
      derecho de sus familias de vivir en paz - igual que hicimos en Vieques. Por
      eso, enviamos un abrazo solidario a todas las personas y organizaciones que
      se oponen al militarismo desenfrenado del gobierno de EU.

      Vieques in solidarity with communities in Virginia opposed to US navy
      activities

      The "sound of freedom"... That's how the pro military groups described the
      sound of US navy jets flying over Vieques during decades of maneuvers and
      bombing practice here. They screamed "communists", at all those opposed to
      the military presence and activities. Now, how would they classify those
      American people from the State of Virginia opposed to the use of their
      lands, their air and historic places by the US Navy? Would they be
      communists, too? Of course not. They are communities in defense of the
      rights of their families to live in peace - just as we did in Vieques. And
      for that reason, we send an embrace of solidarity with all those who oppose
      the militrary frenzy of the US government.

      Navy flight plan is a terrible noise

      By Cortney Langley

      Attorney Barry Steinberg of Washing­ton leads the opposition to the Navy
      locating an Outlying Landing Field in southeastern Virginia. One site is in
      Surry County, across the James from greater Williamsburg. Steinberg earlier
      defended the Army against challenges to environmental impact statements.
      Last year the Town of Blackstone asked him to help fight an OLF at Fort
      Pickett.

      ...

      The Navy tells us that the Delmarva Peninsula cannot accommodate their need,
      Cherry Point just won’t work, they cannot share with the Marines at their
      OLFs, Oceana is encroached, intensity of use renders Fentress inadequate,
      and on and on.

      So all they can think of to solve their problem is to move into pristine,
      historic farmland, disrupt the lives of thousands of citizens and have
      surrogates lecture the affected communities about patriotism.
