On Martin's 90th, we recommit to the struggle

Martin Luther King Jr. would have turned 90 this year. As we mark his birthday on this holiday, we are reminded of his work, his words, his inspiration, and his legacy… and we wonder what work he may have gone on to do if he had lived. We are reminded of all of those in the civil rights and antiwar movements of Martin's lifetime, and of the people who came after to build on those struggles. We are reminded of those whose names and work and wisdom Martin knew, but who are less known to many of us.

From Kashmir to the Philippines, Give to Grassroots Decolonial Education

Across the globe, populist, right-wing, and fascist governments are taking power, giving way to calls for the kind of work WRL has done to counter militarism for nearly a century. It’s an unnerving time, but it is also a time for those in the antiwar movement to adopt a truly internationalist framework, to see the connections between the different fascist movements taking root worldwide and build solidarity with those fighting them.
