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.

WIN Winter 2015

NEW ISSUE!

To the extent war has, in fact, “seeped back and flooded” civil spheres, often with military-grade weaponry and mounting body-counts – particularly in black and brown communities—what, then, of an anti-war movement?

This issue of WIN seeks to explore this question, not merely in terms of police militarization as it has been conventionally reported (particularly in the mounting aftermath of the police murder of Michael Brown in Ferguson, MO), but in terms of its global dynamics, its economics, and those seeking to challenge and dismantle it.

We Pushed Urban Shield Out of Oakland, But the Struggle Continues!

Stop Urban ShieldOn Friday, September 5th, hundreds of protesters gathered in front of the Marriott in Downtown Oakland, CA, to stand against Urban Shield and declare two major victories: Urban Shield will no longer be held at the Marriott and it will no longer take place anywhere in Oakland. Reclaiming the streets in celebration of our power, we made it loud and clear that we do not welcome militarization and policing of our communities.
