The monsters that frighten us are scarier than any ghost or ghoul, and they haunt us beyond October 31st.
Militarism’s clutch on our world is maintained by the culture of fear that works to distract, divide, and conquer us. We’re subdued and taught to believe that politicians have absolute, total power over us, that our voices don’t matter, and that we must opt-in to the broken system. Top-down power depends on obedience, consent, and fear.
But there's a secret that they don't want us to know. The power of governments is often so fragile that when enough people disobey, the government is forced to change.
We believe in the power of nonviolence to create a sustainable world for all of us. To dismantle the system, we can’t replicate the system. That’s why we're launching a new resource, Nonviolence 101, highlighting key moments in history where nonviolent action forced those at the top to listen to the needs of the rest of us. Order yours!
When we come together, we have the magic to vanquish monsters. Thank you for continuing to support our antimilitarist visions for the future.
"The thing about nonviolence is that it spreads. When you get people to participate in nonviolent action - whether it's a fast, a march, a boycott, or a picket line - people hear you, people see you, people are learning from that action." - Dolores Huerta
