“Stop the Next War Now:
Speaking Truth About Power in a Permanent Warfare State”

with Kathy Kelly

Drawing from experiences living alongside Afghans in the Afghan Peace Volunteer community and from recent studies regarding U.S. complicity with human rights violations and war in Yemen, Kathy will assert that one way to stop a “next” war is to continue telling the truth about wars the U.S. is already waging.

• Kathy Kelly co-coordinates Voices for Creative Nonviolence, a campaign to end military and economic violence.  She has visited Afghanistan 15 times since 2010. Voices activists believe that where you stand determines what you see. In previous visits to Iraq, they remained in Baghdad throughout the shock and awe bombing after having organized 70 delegations to violate the economic sanctions by delivering medicines to children and families in Iraq.  On January 23, 2015, Kelly began serving a 3-month prison sentence for attempting to deliver a loaf of bread to the commander of Whiteman Air Force Base where weaponized drones are used to attack people in Afghanistan and other countries.
