Three weeks after her release from internment in Nice's psychiatric hosptial, despite being exhausted from this ordeal and despite her anguish over the on-going forced separation from her two-year-old son, Elie, Séverine Gérard spent a few minutes with me to set the record straight for public opinion.
G.I Suicide Awareness Campaign-G.I.S.A.C was founded on April 11th.2002 with our first action on this Grave Epidemic in Berkeley, California..Our intent with this action is to keep in the forefront the issue surrounding “The High rate of Suicide among Our Troops in Iraq and Afghanistan and Vets at Home..Our Active Duty Soldiers are killing themselves at 18%..Which means out of 800+ coffins who come Home from War, 130+ are Suicides and Vets at Home are killing themselves at a rate of 30+ a day , which is 210+ a week, and 8,000+ a year for 2008…They are eating our children for profit, War Mongers!!!
I chose Veterans Day to write the G.I Suicide Prevention Resolution for OUR Soldiers, to continue to bring attention to this Grave Epidemic…
On December 16th.2008 our Affinity Group presented to Berkeley City Council- G.I Suicide Prevention Resolution.. Councilman Kriss Worthington and Councilman Max Anderson Sponsored the Resolution.
