"No More Endless War" Speak-Out Planned During DNC

 

What: Speak-out to Stop Endless U.S. Wars 
When: Wednesday July 27 4:00 pm
Where: 420 Chestnut Street, south side of plaza, Philadelphia

World Can't Wait will stage anti-war speak-out today with the message that, “no one seeking the position of Commander in Chief will stop the war on terror or end the culture of violence, bigotry and hatred that this has given rise to. The change we need is not on the ballot.”

The true toll of civilian casualties and a worldwide refugee crisis stemming from this borderless war without end will be illustrated and denounced as an unconscionable price for presumed “security” for people living in the U.S. People around the world will be watching the conventions, looking to see if there are people in this country who recognize the damage that these wars have done. The first two days of the DNC have made clear that a Clinton adminstration will be more aggressive in attacking predominately Muslim countries, more dangerous towards civil librities, and even less likely to pursue prosecutation for war crimes including torture and crimes against humanity carried out by Western nations.

World Can’t Wait Steering Committee member Samantha Goldman said today, “ "It is fitting, and outrageous, that Madeleine Albright, who said publicly that the deaths of 500,000 Iraqi children during her tenure were 'worth it' to further U.S. goals in the region argued for Clinton's ability in foreign policy. There are more war crimes to come under a Hillary administration.If we are going to see a better future, those of us, the millions of us, who care about people, the future of humanity and the planet need to act together to stop this whole direction independent of the electoral process.”

The speak-out is sponsored by World Can't Wait and cosponsors Brandywine Peace Community, CodePink, KnowDrones and the Philadelphia Area Anti-Drone Network. Endorsed by the Bill of Rights Defense Committee, Catholic Peace Fellowship/Philadelphia Chapter, Green Party of Philadelphia, Manhattan Green Party, NYC Metro Raging Grannies, NY Granny Peace Brigade, Peace Center of Delaware County, Veterans for Peace Chapters 31 & 34 and Women’s International League for Peace & Freedom (Greater Philadelphia Branch).
