Rally against US arms sales and military cooperation with Saudi Arabia
Thursday, Oct. 27, 5 pm, MIT at 77 Mass Ave (main building)
Demand that MIT end its collaboration with the King Abdulaziz City of Science and Technology (KACST). According to the Oxford Business Group, KACST has developeded partnerships with the two largest US military contractos (Lockheed Martin and Boeing) and is a key institution in carry out R&D in support of Saudi Arabia's military modernization. It is unclear at this stage whether MIT's collaboration specifically includes research with military applications. But given US supported Saudi Arabian war crimes in Yemen and its abysmal human rights record, it is inappropriate for US universities to be supportive of key institutions in Saudi Arabia's military infrastructure.

Talks by Phyllis Bennis October 11-14
Is the war in Syria a civil war? Is it a proxy war between the US and Russia ? Is it also a proxy war between Saudi Arabia, Iran, and Turkey? Can ISIS be reined in? Should Assad go? Or stay? Should the US "do more"? Or is it already doing too much by arming and training rebel groups? What will be the likely outcome of the current cease fire negotiations?

Dr. Andrew Bacevich will give a talk on his upcoming book, America’s War for the Greater Middle East, on Monday, March 21, 2016 at 7:00 PM at the Walpole Public Library.
In his book, Dr. Bacevich makes a searing reassessment of U.S. military policy in the Middle East. Over the past four decades, U.S. forces embarked upon a seemingly endless series of campaigns across the Islamic world. Few achieved anything remotely like conclusive success.

Remarks delivered at "Welcome Refugees - War is Not the Answer" candlelight vigil, December 10, 2015, Boston Common. Photos
In our war culture we learn to define the "other" -- the "outsider" -- as an "enemy" from our earliest hours. The "enemy" is depersonalized in wars to make killing easier, so that it's easier not to care and to close our eyes and hearts to the inflicted horrors that all wars are. What needs to happen is a total transformation. We need to recognize the humanity of others – one way to do that is to welcome war refugees (sometimes mistermed migrants or immigrants by the media) – as we take responsibility for the consequences of the wars waged in our names by our government.
Those of us who work for peace day after day, week after week, year after year, decade after decade are among those who do take that step toward recognition of the humanity of others. We abhor the bombs dropping on children, mothers, fathers, grandparents. I always think – hey – there are people down there – it's not shock and awe it's murder! I find it very painful when I stand with my sign for peace and people in my community drive past shouting out justifications for bombing and killing – even one time - thankfully only one time- "nuke 'em". The violence here and wars there are out of control, we are eclipsed by events that worsen daily and our voices continue unheeded.
