Turn Up for Mike Brown - #IndictAmerica - The Day After the Verdict

When: The Day After the Verdict, 7:00 pm 
Where: Boston Police B2 HQ • 2400 Washington St • Roxbury

Turn Up for Mike Brown

**IMPORTANT: The event will be the DAY AFTER the verdict is announced.**

To America, Darren Wilson is Innocent. INDICT AMERICA.

Whether Darren Wilson is delivered an indictment or a non-indictment, we know that killer cops are viewed as law abiding citizens. Darren Wilson says he was just doing his job. He’s right. Richard Haste, Ramarley Graham’s murderer, claims he did nothing wrong. He’s right. Cops who murder Black and brown people in the name of America's capitalist white supremacy aren’t just innocent; they’re commended for a job well done. INDICT AMERICA.

People in dozens of cities in the US are currently planning to turn up in their own cities when the verdict is announced. JOIN US!

Boston Protest Against U.S. Wars on Iraq/Syria

About 50 peace activists held an anti-war speakout at Park St., then marched behind a model drone to downtown crossing, where a mock drones war "die-in" took place as street theater. It attracted a great deal of attention from downtown shoppers; a police car showed up, but allowed us to stay and continue our protest.

Nuclear Tree

April 24-26, 2015

New York City

  • An international peace, justice and environmental conference – April 24 & 25
     
  • A major international rally, march to the United Nations and peace festival – April 26

YOU can make a difference!

The United States, U.K., Russia, China and France long ago signed onto a commitment to negotiate the elimination of their nuclear weapons, but after 44 years this group has yet to hold its first meeting.

April 27, 2015 is when the nations of the world meet at the UN to determine what -- if anything -- can be done to compel the U.S. and other nuclear weapons states to adhere to their commitments.

Between now and May, U.S. and international advocates urging the elimination of nuclear weapons by the U.S. and the other nuclear weapons states will be building a campaign of mass participation in events related to the Non-Proliferation Treaty Review Conference.

A world free of the threat of nuclear devastation starts with elimination of the U.S. and other nuclear arsenals.

Against a Major New US War in the Middle East: UJP Statement

  • 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?

Peace Activists Join Huge People's Climate March

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.
