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.

A One-Day Conference about Building Networks of Solidarity in Defiance of NSA Spying & the Erosion of Democratic Rights
Recent dueling district court decisions on the legality of NSA cell phone spying guarantee that at least some of the Orwellian practices of the federal government will come before the Supreme Court relatively soon. This provides the perfect opportunity to build relationships of solidarity among all those victimized by NSA spying, drones, COINTELPRO-type dirty tricks against the movements for social change, and other forms of systematic suppression of privacy and democratic rights.
