In the name of national security, our coun­try's policies  are caus­ing multiple, sys­temic cri­ses.  These include cli­mate ca­tas­trophe, ex­treme inequality, con­stant wars, deep-seated racism, mass incar­ceration, and a militarized cul­ture.

Only large social movements can remove these barriers to genuine security and construct a society based on Sustainable Security.

This conference will explore three pillars of sustainable national and world security:

  • A fairly-shared global prosperity based on economic, social, and racial justice
  • Emergency action to address climate change and build a new, fossil-fuel-free energy system
  • A Foreign Policy for All based on even-handed diplomacy, ending our disastrous military interventions, abolition of nuclear weapons, and reclaiming war resources for the urgent needs that face our world

Protest at Nancy Pelosi's Harvard Speech

When: Friday, November 13, 2009, 10:30 am to 1:00 pm
Where: Harvard Kennedy School • 79 JFK St. • Littauer Hall • Cambridge

Speaker Pelosi:

No Escalation in Afghanistan!

Bring the Troops Home Now!

Support Single Payer Health Care!

Stop CO2 Pollution –350 by 2020!

 

Protest House Speaker Nancy Pelosi

Friday, November 13,   4:30 – 7:00 p.m.
Harvard U., JFK School, Littauer Bldg.
79 John F. Kennedy St., Cambridge
 
The Democrats won a majority in the House of
Representatives in 2006 on a popular mandate to bring the troops home and stop selling America to corporate interests. As Speaker of the House, Nancy Pelosi sets priorities for Congress.
 
There is no military solution in Afghanistan.   The more U.S. troops that are sent to prop up the corrupt regime, the harder it will be to make peace. But under Speaker Pelosi’s leadership, Congress continues to support war and occupation. Congress must cut off the funds to bring all our troops home from Afghanistan, Pakistan, and Iraq.
