Beheadings, Bombings and Bullets: Medea Benjamin on our New Wars in Syria and Iraq

When: Wednesday, October 22, 2014, 4:00 pm
Where: Harvard Science Center D • 1 Oxford St • Harvard T • Cambridge (LOCATION CHANGE)

How should we respond to the new US war in Iraq and Syria and the dangers this war may unleash in our violent world? 

The U.S. attacks on Syria launched Sept. 22 are a disastrous setback for peace, for the rule of law, and for sound U.S. foreign policy.  Why did the US launch them, how can we stop them,  and what are the nonviolent alternatives we should advocate?

The United States, U.K., Russia, China and France long ago signed onto a commitment to negotiate the elimination of their nuclear weapons, but after 44 years this group has yet to hold its first meeting.

April 27, 2015 is when the nations of the world meet at the UN to determine what — if anything — can be done to compel the U.S. and other nuclear weapons states to adhere to their commitments.

Between now and May, U.S. and international advocates urging the elimination of nuclear weapons by the U.S. and the other nuclear weapons states will be building a campaign of mass participation in events related to the Non-Proliferation Treaty Review Conference.

We call for an end to militarism and war, action to save the planet from climate catastrophe, and a focus on social justice.

Peace+Planet.logo.100A world free of the threat of nuclear devastation starts with elimination of the U.S. and other nuclear arsenals.

Will you help us make it happen by joining us in New York City to press the U.S. and other nuclear states to start negotiating?  Sign up today!
