On U.S. Escalation Against Iraq and Syria

Ahlam: Kites and Shattered Dreams by Maysaloun Faraj, 2011

Military Intervention is Not the Solution!

In recent months IS has spread a wave of oppression and violence that goes well beyond the headline-catching executions and massacres to affecting millions of Iraqis and Syrians through fear, exploitation and gender-based violence. Now 12 years into the U.S.-led invasion and occupation of Iraq, we witness how militarism expands violence and destroys hope rather than creating lasting solutions to ongoing crisis.

April 8 2011 Pentagon Action

Announcing an April 8 Civil Resistance Action at the Pentagon:

We will come together in solidarity to act in resistance against the activities of the U.S. military and form autonomous affinity groups that will be acting in nonviolent civil resistance at the Pentagon on April 8.  We will encourage groups to descend on the Pentagon around noon on April 8, but each group will decide when and where to meet to begin their action.
