Are you concerned about the impact of war and militarization on women here at home? How about gun violence in our communities…domestic violence…women and economic disparity…environmental justice…elder and immigrant concerns…
Here is your opportunity to have input into the
U.S. National Action Plan (NAP) on Women, Peace and Security.
Women’s voices will be heard. Last year, Secretary of State Hillary Clinton made a historic commitment to advance the status of women by developing a plan to implement UN Resolution 1325 in U.S. policy and practice, a plan scheduled to be completed by November 2011. WILPF has the powerful opportunity to organize five grass-roots meetings in the U.S. for collective input on what “security” really means to women, with a representative of the State Department’s Office of Global Affairs in attendance.
It is fitting that Mitt Romney consolidated his lead to be the Republican nominee for president on the day that Guantanamo Bay marked its tenth anniversary: January 11, 2012. Back on April 21, 2006, the Massachusetts governor spent a few hours touring Guantanamo to buttress his presidential ambitions.
"Some people have said we ought to close Guantanamo. My view is we ought to double Guantanamo," he proclaimed as he hit the campaign trail. Brandishing his strong-on-national-security credentials, he declared that Guantanamo was "a symbol of American resolve."
One way of telling the story of Guantanamo is through the numbers. No amount of "tough on terrorism" posturing by Romney and other politicians can disguise the profound injustice that these numbers represent.
