The U.S. attacks on Syria and Iraq are a disastrous setback for peace, the rule of law, and for a diplomatic resolution of the upheaval in the Middle East.
These wars divert attention and resources from the economic well-being of U.S. families and the need to address climate change. They undermine the kind of international cooperation that is needed to address urgent needs in the world community. The new war will consume all the money in Washington – there is no way funding will be available for climate change, housing, or jobs if the U.S. starts a new war.Filed under:

|Youth filled the streets at People's Climate March|
A huge march of 300,000 people wound through Manhattan's midtown on the westside on Sept. 21 demanding urgent and substantive action to deal with global warming. Peace activists from all over Massachusetts joined in, pointing to the overlap in issues and common cause. Organized labor also held a pre-march rally as did faith communities, and convergence of issues was a theme of the day. Hopefully UN General Secretary Ban Xi-Moon, who also marched, will feel lots of support from the people as he tries to pressure reluctant goverments such as the USA into action.
Children living under the Israeli occupation of West Bank and Gaza are exposed to violence as a way of life. They are imprisoned, scarred or disabled by war injuries and devastation. Many have been robbed of their childhood. Speakers include Dr. Mads Gilbert; Omar Barghouti, BDS; Ivan Karakashian, Defence for Children International; Sahar Vardi and concerned therapists and peace activists. Come and learn more.
Registration: $25.00, Students $10.00

- No US military intervention or bombing of Syria and Iraq!
- Bring all the troops home
- No arms or training to parties to the conflict
- Support a political solution including all concerned parties and governments based on self- determination of the people
- Support genuine and neutral humanitarian aid such as UN efforts endorsed by the entire Security Council; oppose false aid used as a cover for military intervention
Here we go again -- has the US government learned nothing from the disastrous Iraq war? The brutal US intervention and occupation of Iraq destroyed Iraqi society and is the principal cause leading to the current violence and chaos. Why would anyone think that another US intervention would be anything but another disaster?
