Montpelier, Vt.

The Vermont Peace Without Justice Coalition (VPWJC) announced today that it will be sending 100,000 candles to the people of New Orleans left devastated and near death after Hurricane Katrina's deadly rampage.

"Like these people need our help," said VPWJC spokesperson Karma Gibberish. "They need resources and networking and a great big hug. We like love them. I was going to attend the PEACE AT ANY PRICE Convention in New Orleans next month. I mean, gross! This is a very stressful time for all of us."

Gibberish stated that VPWJC is sending the candles in the hope that further violence in New Orleans "and the rest of the world" could be averted.

"I mean, like we don't want any more victims," Gibberish explained. "The message we're sending with the candles is a simple organic one: When you feel like looting private property, or shooting at a FEMA official or like some innocent tourist taking pictures, light a candle instead. Hold a vigil. Think about Cindy. Do the correct thing. And remember, bottom line, it's all about peace. I mean, it could be worse. Bombs could be falling on us. That would like be really gross."

According to Gibberish, VPWJC is also considering sending Vermont grown GMO-free vegetables to New Orleans in the hope of raising awareness about the "international threat to humankind's survival" from genetically engineered foods.
"I mean, like forget about all that justice stuff--what if a really big gross hurricane spread Monsanto seed pods all over America. I mean, like we'd be really like fucked! she observed.

"This is an excellent opportunity to help those poor people in New Orleans get away from that fattie junkie food they've been famous for for so long. Like when you haven't eaten in days, an organic carrot is going to taste like heaven, even if it tastes like wood," Gibberish effused. " I mean, like we at VPWJC hope to see a 'new' New Orleans, where peaceful, organic, and socially responsible Americans can go to on vacation and eat healthy, ease their stress, and stop that gross war. I mean, like for sure."
