The War Resisters League affirms that all war is a crime against humanity.  We are determined not to support any kind of war, international or civil, and to strive nonviolently for the removal of all causes of war, including racism, sexism and all forms of exploitation.

Con Siria y contra la "solidaridad selectiva"

War Resisters League condena el ataque con armas químicas y las acciones militares de Estados Unidos en el contexto de la catástrofe de 6 años de guerra en Siria. Condenamos los asesinatos continuados del régimen de Bashar al Assad, usando bombas de barril y armas convencionales y químicas, la tortura y el encarcelamiento de civiles y activistas. Condenamos todos y cada uno de los 7,912 ataques llevados a cabo por la Coalición desde 2014 en Siria, con el resultado de incontables víctimas civiles. Condenamos los ataques aéreos de Rusia, y las operaciones contra los sirios de las tropas terrestres iraníes en alianza con el Ejército Sirio, para sostener al régimen de Assad.

With Syria; Against Selective Solidarity

War Resisters League condemns the chemical weapons attack and U.S. military actions of the past week within the context of the catastrophic, six-year Syrian war. We condemn Bashar al Assad regime’s ongoing murder, barrel bombing, chemical and conventional weapons use, torture and imprisonment of Syrian civilians and activists. We condemn every one of the 7,912 US-led International Coalition strikes since 2014 on Syria, resulting in countless civilian casualties. We also condemn Russian airstrikes, Iranian ground troops attacking Syrians in alliance with the Syrian Army, and their funding of Bashar al Assad’s regime.

Each year, War Resisters League analyzes federal funds outlays as presented in detailed tables in "Analytical Perspectives" of the Budget of the United States Government. Our analysis is based on federal funds, which do not include trust funds -- such as Social Security -- that are raised separately from income taxes for specific purposes. What you pay (or don't pay) by April 18, 2017 goes to the federal funds portion of the budget.

Sanctuary Cities Beyond Militarism

WRL stands with all migrants in the U.S., especially the many facing renewed threats of mass deportation under the new Trump administration. Criminalization of many communities and nationalities is on the rise, but most prominently the release of executive orders in the new administration’s first week targets Latinx and refugee communities in expanded ways, and defense must be a priority for our collective and intersectional movements.
