PRESS RELEASE: MARCH ON THE PENTAGON’S RAGE AGAINST THE WAR MACHINE
March on the Pentagon is calling for a revival of the anti-war movement with plans to confront the bipartisan war machine at the White House on October 11, 2019

May 28, 2019—In response to the continuing march of military aggression by the United States and to put an anti-war agenda back on the table of activists, around 2,000 women and their comrades marched on the Pentagon in Arlington, Virginia in October 2018. Last year, March on the Pentagon called for a revival of the antiwar/anti-imperialism movement and we are continuing that call in 2019.

This year we are taking our march to the White House. We invite all those outraged by the U.S. war machine, U.S. imperialism, endless wars, the mind boggling death toll, the invisible effects like PTSD and substance abuse, the abuse of the planet and contribution to climate change, and the toll war takes on women across the globefrom rape and loss of children to raising one’s family as a refugee in a foreign land. If you’re not outraged, you’re not paying attention. 

The truth is, war and imperialism are the umbrella over virtually every other issue plaguing the world today including climate change, underfunded education, increasingly militarized police, a lack of adequate healthcare, refugee crises across the globe, and much much more.

We invite you to Rage Against the War Machine with us in Washington D.C. on Friday, October 11th and attend the Anti-Imperialist Revolution Summit on Saturday, October 12th.

Our demands are simple: The complete end to the wars abroad; closure of foreign bases; a dramatic slashing of the Pentagon budget. The only good empire is a gone empire. 

In 1967, anti-war events drew crowds as big as 50,000 people. In today’s world where information is shared instantly at the click of a button, activists and concerned citizens in the United States should be capable of similar, if not larger, crowds. The “nuclear clock” is at two minutes to midnight—it’s time for the anti-war movement to wake up, fill the streets, and get noisy.

    I was 18 in 1967 and had gone to the march on the pentagon with a lot of other people, while sitting there listening to Abby Hoffman and others speak, I saw soldiers beat people with the butt of their guns, and some throw them down and run into the crowd to join us, eventually a lot of us were arrested. when in court, the judge fined me $25 or five days in jail, I didn’t have any money, then a group called Mobilization for youth came in , paid all our fines and chartered busses for all of us to go back to where we came from, it seemed like a cop out to me, I was willing to go to jail for my stance on the war, as were many others, paying our fines just undid what we came to do, I was disalusioned by the movement after that and never participated again, How do you think this will be different, we need a spokesperson like Abby Hoffman and Gerry Ruben and all the rest of the Chicago 7
