Where: Downstairs from Sen. John Kerry's office • corner of Cambridge & New Chardon Streets, Boston • Bowdoin or Government Center T • Boston

Vote Yes on Budget for AllThe New York Times came out for rapid withdrawal from Afghanistan in an October 14 editorial.    Senate candidate Elizabeth Warren has done the same in several recent debates.

What about Senator Kerry?  Will he continue to support two more years of conflict followed by a further 10 years of residual occupation, as the Administration proposes? Or will he support a rapid end to the war?

The Arab Spring: 
Significance and Prospects

The Conference

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.
