As we grieve the devastating impact of the Marathon bombings had on many families and communities in the Boston area, we are also aware of the need to examine the impact of those bombings on peace and justice issues in our communities, campaigns and organizing.
Presentations will provide analysis and ideas for response from the anti-war, immigrants’ rights, civil liberties, anti-war, economic justice, and Muslim communities.

The Arab Spring:
Significance and Prospects
Fall 2011 marks ten years since 9/11, the War on Terror, the Afghanistan War, and the founding of UJP. The US/NATO bombing of Libya is the latest in the series of wars. Domestically, greed is rampant and serious problems are getting worse. Few peace and justice activists can remember a more troubling time.
How did we get here and how can we change things?
What can we learn from the historic events in Egypt, where the people triumphed against huge odds, and the workers of Wisconsin?
How can the peace movement continue its work to end the wars and cut the military budget while also building cooperation with the economic and racial justice movements?
We want a peaceful foreign policy based on democracy to focus on the pressing economic and human problems that must be solved.
