Now that Mr. Quigley and Mr. Smith have tried to hush the concerns of thousands of former Volunteers by pretending to with the idea of an Ombudsman's office or even help former volunteers who have been victims of violence, threats to personal safety, rape or even death, we are moving forward to be heard in the International Relations committee this year.

The Class action law suit will be filed as well to let the people in Peace Corps who cover this stuff up, that we will get our careers back, the monetary compensation for being discriminated against and for back pay. The perpetrators of these harassments, physical attacks, political attacks and killings will then be prosecuted correctly. There is no stopping us, we are organizing. We are going to demand we are able to speak in Congress. We will get that to speak when Peace Corp's budget comes up and we will expose the Corruption going on at Peace Corps with our cases.

The Ombudsman's office and defelction of our real concerns of securing funds for attorneys or an attorney to work on us cases will not work. We will be opening a fund to raise money for these people for a Television ad program that asks the public. Have you serve in Peace Corps and were you injured in service? We will not be entertained with the idea of an Ombudsman's office from Tony Hall or anybody else who do not have our real interests at heart.

Transparency will come to Peace Corps especially medical separations and administrative separations.

If you have a FECA claim and you are being denied your claim write into this web site we want to hear from you and we want to combine our concerns with yours.

The resignation of Mr. Smith would help volunteers.

The only reason those hearing took place is because we served and were assaulted, threatened with our life, raped or even killed during our service. The members of Congres will hear from us now.
