for the Syrian people!

The White House’s announcement that it would begin openly supplying arms to the opposition in Syria and is considering a “no fly” zone over Syria is a dramatic escalation of ongoing U.S. involvement in war against that country.  The U.S. has been training opposition forces and coordinating operations coming from neighboring countries.  Israel, the largest recipient of U.S. military aid, bombed Syria, and other close U.S. allies supplying weapons are police-state monarchies Saudi Arabia and Qatar.

Counter-Summit: Say No to NATO!

Say No to NATO

There will be more than 50 heads of state participating in the upcoming NATO Summit in Chicago May 20-21.

The NATO Summit's agenda aims to:

  • Establish support for a US military presence through 2024 in Afghanistan
  • Commit to spending billions of dollars to arm and support over-sized Afghan security forces that are unsustainable
  • Reaffirm NATO as a global military alliance and preparations for “New Strategic Concept” wars like the disastrous Libyan military intervention.

The Network for a NATO-Free Future has organized the Counter-Summit for Peace and Economic Justice May 18-19. To push back against this agenda, the counter summit will offer plenary sessions and 28 workshops featuring analysis, trainings, and campaigns designed to bring the troops home, to move the money from the Pentagon to meet real human needs and to create a more peaceful, just and secure world.  

If you can’t make it to Chicago, watch the conference plenaries via Livestream available here: Plenaries are scheduled to begin at 9:30 Friday morning, 5:00 Friday afternoon, and 9:45 Saturday morning.
