An article from The United National Antiwar Coalition
“The greatest purveyor of violence in the world : My own Government, I can not be Silent.” – Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. April 4, 1967
As you know, after the October antiwar actions, more than 75 actions, we held a meeting to discuss next steps. It was decided that we should have another week of actions and the week around Martin Luther King Day, Jan 14 – 22 was proposed. So, we are moving forward organizing STOP U.S. Wars actions again during that week. Many organizations endorsed the October week of actions and are anxious to continue.
As Martin Luther King, Jr. so correctly reminded us, the U.S. is the greatest purveyor of violence in the world. Since WWII, the US has initiated more than 60 military interventions in foreign countries. The US/NATO proxy war in Ukraine brings the US in direct confrontation with a major nuclear power as does the U.S. provocation against China over Taiwan.
It is extremely important that we build a strong, unified antiwar movement that can break through the media propaganda and censorship and end the US military aggression around the world.
Each of our actions are based on building local connections among various solidarity organizations. A variety of actions are encouraged from demonstrations, teach-Ins, banner drops, chalk-ins to street meetings.
Actions linking ALL the continuing US wars and sanctions is a unifying focus and helps break through the propaganda that saturates each war.
