"Rethink Afghanistan" Film - UJP fall conference

When: Saturday, October 3, 2009, 9:00 am to 1:00 pm
Where: Democracy Center • 45 Mt. Auburn St. • Cambridge

Members of UJP and its affiliated groups will gather on Saturday, October 3, from 1-5pm, for our next strategy conference.    This time, we'll meet at the Democracy Center, 45 Mt. Auburn St., in Harvard Square.  The agenda will include a new film on Afghanistan, building the October 17 protest, revising the UJP structure, and reports from UJP task forces.

To start off the program we will view the powerful and thought-provoking new film, Rethink Afghanistan, by noted documentary filmmaker Robert Greenwald.   The film, which has been released in installments over the past four months, is now complete and addresses the 2009 escalation, the costs of the war, the impact on Pakistan, on Afghan women, the civilian casaualties, and the security implications for Americans.   We will also mention how UJP members who view the film Oct. 3 can organize screenings in their communities or house party screenings in their own homes.    View the trailer at left.

The film will be followed by a discussion on the peace movement's response to the Afghan war.   While Democratic Sen. Russ Feingold and conservative columnist George Will have come out against escalation in recent days, and while 51% of the American public opposes the war according to polls,  the Pentagon and much of the Washington establishment appear determined to send more troops and escalate the conflict once again.   The peace movement must raise our voices and continue to increase the political cost of escalation so that the Obama Administration "rethinks" its war policy.

No U.S. War in Iraq and Syria

When: Saturday, September 13, 2014, 10:00 am
Where: Park Street MBTA Station • Tremont & Park Streets • Boston

No U.S. War in Iraq and Syria

President Obama plans to launch a new war on Iraq and Syria, using US air strikes, arms, money, and training, and over 1,500 U.S. ground troops. The U.S. war on Iraq in 2003-2011 caused this crisis.

We can't let this happen again. Join together to protest another US war in Iraq and Syria. It’s time once again to stand up for peace and justice and against this insanity.
