So You Wanna Be A Cop?

Cops have been us telling little blue lies...
Actually these lies are not so little, and instead obscure the realities of policing in the U.S. That's why we are launching a new resource to help fight the powerful police department rebrand campaigns, and get the truth to young people being recruited to the police force.

Sanaa Review: Ray of Light from Yemen

While Trump escalates long-standing US complicity in the catastrophic war on Yemen through its arming of Saudi Arabia and more, we are deeply inspired by the launch of مجلة صنعاء "Sanaa Review": an e-zine by Yemenis that cuts through silence and distortion, bringing us the brilliance of independent Yemeni journalism, art and thought now. This media work is all the more timely since according to Reporters Without Borders, Yemen has become the second most dangerous place for journalists on earth, due mostly to repression by "rebels" . Below Sanaa Review's editor-in-chief Afrah Nasser describes why this independent project is so needed, and gives us a glimpse of the content they put out in the Fall of 2017.

Happy 94th Birthday to Us~!

~✨ Happy Birthday ✨~

For 94 years, we've dreamed a demilitarized world by building an intergenerational, intersectional, and international anti-war movement to end all forms of militarism across the world. From our humble beginnings as a group of secular pacifists founded by Jesse Wallace Hughan in 1923, WRL and its membership have transformed radically throughout time. We're glad to have you with us as we continue resisting war and violence at home and abroad!
