On MLK Day: A Special Message from Arun Kundnani

Arun Kundnani

On this MLK day, let us recall Dr. Martin Luther King's deepest legacy. He understood that denouncing the violent extremism of young, angry men in the ghettos could not be done without hypocrisy unless one also condemned the far greater violence of the U.S. war machine in Vietnam. When governments decide political problems can be solved through violence, it is no surprise their citizens reach the same conclusion.

Act Now: Stop Fueling War in Yemen

Today marks 15 years since the U.S. invasion of Iraq. While we rally in the streets to demand accountability for the violence visited upon Iraqis for more than a decade, our collective responsibility to dismantle militarism wherever it roots, in whatever form it takes, cannot be ignored. That’s why, as we look towards a future free of war and violence, today we’re asking you to take action against U.S. support for Saudi bombing in Yemen.

Negotiate, Don't Escalate!

Yesterday North Korea fired a ballistic missile at Hokkaido Island-- the first missile of its kind to fly over Japan amidst rising global tensions. Meanwhile, US and South Korean military exercises continue while Trump renews threats of escalation, fueling an all too costly arms race. 

As the international community calls for diplomatic solutions, today we turn to our comrades in the global Korean diaspora and members of Nodutdol for Korean Community Development to share their demands for de-escalation and peace.
