March on the Pentagon Presents
Rage Against the War machine and Anti-Imperialist Revolution Summit
This Friday, October 11th, at 11 am, activists from all over the country will gather in front of the White House to Rage Against Trump and Republicans and then begin an unpermitted march through the streets of the “Belly of the Beast” where they will march from location to location that represent the “worst of the worst” of organizations/corporations that support the US War Machine.
Since the US War of Terror began 18 years ago with millions of deaths and lives destroyed, “Peace Mom” Cindy Sheehan (whose oldest son Casey was killed in 2004 in another illegal and immoral US war for profit and resource control) is once again calling activists and other concerned humans to join her in demanding an end to the US war machine.
As alternative media publisher and peace activist, Mnar Muhawesh from Minnesota recently wrote:
Some 2.7 billion dollars per day. That’s how much the U.S. government will spend next year to prop up the military and the more than 800 bases it maintains in over 70 countries. The U.S. military also drops a bomb every 12 minutes on foreign countries most Americans can barely make out on a map. That money is more than enough to pay for four years of college for every college student in this country, to fund food stamps and other social safety nets that help our most vulnerable including our veterans, and to fund programs that would cut fossil-fuel emissions by 40 percent by 2035.
Despite this, there has been an utter failure by both the media and grassroots activists to address the growing waste and greed of the military-industrial complex. The several millions of victims of our war machine pay this heavy price and their voices are censored by the media.
An estimated 4 million people just took part in worldwide climate strikes that put the issue of climate breakdown at the forefront of the media conversation. Missing from this conversation, however, is an analysis of the role militarism and empire plays in driving the chaos. The U.S. military is the world’s largest polluter and emits more carbon dioxide than a hundred countries combined.
Now is your chance to speak up and join the anti-war movement. Let’s rage against the war machine together on October 11th.
The day after the march and rallies, MoP is presenting the Anti-Imperialist Revolution Summit at St. Stephen’s Episcopal Church in Mount Pleasant at 1525 Newton St NW from 11:30 to 9:00 PM.
