The War Resisters League has been resisting war at home and war abroad since 1923. Today, as one of the leading radical voices in the antiwar movement, we challenge military recruitment and war profiteering, organize nonviolent direct action, and offer on-the-ground tools to end the current war and all wars.

Please join War Resisters League in honoring Howard Clark, who passed away unexpectedly at home last weekend.
War Resisters International was founded in 1921 to promote nonviolent action against the causes of war and to support and connect people around the world who refuse to take part in war or the preparation of war.
In addition to campaigning against militarism in Britain, Ireland, Spain, and the Balkans, Howard Clark wrote on active nonviolence and ran training on nonviolent resistance with people in South Africa and Kosovo.
On Friday, October 25th, more than 100 police and military agencies from California and across the US were joined by their counterparts from Israel, Guam, Bahrain, and Brazil for a massive SWAT team training and weapons expo called Urban Shield. The Facing Urban Shield Action Network, with more than 30 endorsers in the Bay Area, showed up to challenge this convergence and the militarization of police.
