KEEP THE ANTIWAR MOVEMENT STRONG: SUPPORT THE
UNITED NATIONAL ANTIWAR COALITION (UNAC)

 
DONATE

The second national UNAC conference in March, attended by close to 600 activists, set the agenda for our work for this election year. Our primary objective was to keep the antiwar movement visible and in the streets in a time of never-ending and expanding wars, austerity, and repression. Our program for action emphasized the connection between the racist, imperialist wars abroad and the assault on working people, especially people of color, at home, while building coalitions founded on the principle that an injury to one is an injury to all.


These are the highlights of our successful efforts:

· We kicked off the organizing and helped build a People's Summit and a mass demonstration of 15,000 people to protest NATO and the G-8 in Chicago in May.

· We rallied for peace at the Republican and Democratic Conventions and on the 11th anniversary of the Afghanistan invasion.

· Three of our Administrative Committee members traveled to Pakistan on the anti-drone tour organized by Code Pink and then reported about our experiences at forums around the country.

· We participated in the rally in New York against the NYPD's racist Stop and Frisk policy and continued to support our Muslim brothers and sisters who are under attack.

· We joined the emergency actions in defense of Gaza under brutal attack by the U.S.-backed Israeli forces.

· We welcomed and participated in the Occupy movement that swept the country following the inspiration of the Arab Spring.

· We organized demonstrations to demand U.S. non-intervention in Iran, Libya, and Syria.

· We campaigned against the assault on our civil liberties, including indefinite detention, targeted assassinations, and the mass incarceration of Black and Latino youth.

There are dangerous times ahead. U.S. and NATO forces mass on the Turkish border; Iran continues to be a target of the U.S., NATO and Israel; the U.S. backs Israel's continued land theft and brutality against the Palestinians; and the U.S. has its sights set on China and North Korea in the Pacific.

On the home front, unions are threatened, there are draconian cuts to the social safety net, Islamophobia is heightened, immigrants are detained and deported, and mass incarceration is used as a means of social control.

Drones are the new weapons of choice for war and domination and increasingly the foundation of the expanding surveillance state. Opposing drones will be a focus of our work in the coming year.

A strong and growing opposition to the criminal actions of the U.S. government is even more vital today. We urge you to support the antiwar movement and give an end-of-the-year gift to UNAC. Please contribute by hitting this button by sending a check made our to UNAC to UNAC, PO Box 123, Delmar, NY 12054.  You can also contribute on-line by clicking the donate button above or going to the UNAC web site at www.UNACpeace.org and making a contribution.

We wish you all peaceful and restful holidays as we gear up to face the challenges of the new year.

Peace,

Marilyn Levin and Joe Lombardo

UNAC Co-Coordinators.
