Global Climate Action

The Global Climate Action Summit this September will convene elected leaders from all levels to make climate commitments. But we’ve seen empty political gestures in the past.

We’re demanding that world leaders enact and follow through on strong climate commitments.

Already, people all across the country are leading on climate locally, and getting results.

Now it’s your turn.

Extreme weather events and heatwaves are plaguing communities, while, fossil fuel executives and crooked politicians are working behind the curtain to continue profiting at the expense of environmental destruction. It’s time for a new standard in climate leadership.

You can play a role in ending these injustices for the sake of a cleaner, healthier, more just planet. The time to act is now.

Together we will win.

October 20-21, 2018 -Pentagon

To Confront the Bi-Partisan War Machine

In response to the continuing march of military aggression by the USA and to put an antiwar agenda back on the table of activists, we are calling for an Women’s (and allies) March on the Pentagon tentatively sent for the 51st anniversary of the 1967 big antiwar event in DC and subsequent march on the Pentagon that had 50,000 people!

If you don’t like Trump (and who doesn’t), we have something for you too! Just think TRUMP’S BLOATED FINGER IS ON THE NUCLEAR BUTTON!

However, this is NOT, nor will it turn into a Get Out the Vote Rally for the Democrat 1/2 of the War Party. This is a principled call to action against the entire rotten Empire.

November 10-12, 2018 - Washington, D.C.

Mobilize Against Trump’s War Parade

People from all over the country will descend on Washington, D.C., to say NO to Donald Trump’s War Parade on Veterans’ Day weekend.

This is an outrage! It is an obscene glorification of war and a criminal waste of urgently needed money. At this very moment so many working people are unable to pay their medical bills and rent, millions in Puerto Rico still have no electricity, youth unemployment is still staggering, the drug epidemic is worsening, and the country’s infrastructure is crumbling. The United States spends more on the military than the next 10 countries combined. This is an advertisement for spending hundreds of billions more on the Pentagon and to line the pockets of weapons contractors.

The War Parade is aimed at stimulating a new war drive that will bring death and destruction to one (or more) of the countries on the Pentagon hit list, potentially Iran, North Korea, or Venezuela. The over-the-top celebrations of the war machine — in the false guise of “patriotism” — also serve to stifle dissent at home, as Trump has repeatedly shown with his racist attacks on #BlackLivesMatter protesters.

The people of this country, and the world, will not stand for it. We will not be led into the slaughterhouse of war — either as perpetrators or victims — so as to repair a wounded ego or a wounded Empire. Hundreds of thousands will pour into the streets to stop Trump’s agenda of militarism and racism.
