As the Trump regime unveils its shameful “Middle East Peace Plan”, tensions with the people of Iran remain high, millions are in the streets of Iraq demanding immediate US withdrawal, and the situation in Yemen continues to deteriorate. Globally, US militarism continues to destabilize life from Bolivia and Venezuela, to Haiti, Sudan and the Philippines. Across the planet and here in the Bay Area, movements are taking up the vital task of building unity against these threats to life and are building a vision for a society built on peace, solidarity, and democracy.
Join us February 5 to learn about:
- The global context for the current escalation with Iran
- Key insights from anti-war organizing 2001-2008
- How US intervention and militarism affects movements for social justice
- What you can do to take action against US war-making
