For some LGBT Americans, it just doesn’t get better soon enough and for many of us it never really does.

After what she claimed was years of emotional abuse from her devout Christian parents, 17-year-old Leelah Alcorn couldn’t bear it any longer. During the early morning hours on Sunday, three days after Christmas, the Kings Mills, Ohio, teen allegedly stepped in front of a passing semi on a nearby highway, killing herself.

UNAC

As US/NATO aggression towards Russia increases, five leaders from the United National Antiwar Coalition (UNAC) attended an antiwar conference in Moscow this month.  We were invited by the Anti-Globalization Movement of Russia. The five UNAC members who attended the conference were Margaret Kimberley of Black Agenda Report and the UNAC Administrative Committee; Joe Iosbaker of the Committee to Stop FBI Repression, the Rasmea Odeh defense campaign and the UNAC Administrative Committee; Bill Dores of the International Action Center; women’s rights activist, Mo Hannah; and UNAC Co-Coordinator, Joe Lombardo.  We spoke at the conference on December 13th, held a press conference in Moscow and had many interviews with the Russian media. [read more]

 Save the Date – UNAC National Conference, May 8 – 10, 2015

UNAC is the major national antiwar coalition in the U.S. today.  The existence of a United National Antiwar Coalition is vital and we need your financial support to continue our work and to expand.

With U.S. wars today accelerating and expanding globally in various forms – from drone attacks on Yemen and Pakistan, never-ending wars in Iraq and Afghanistan, support to neo-fascists in Ukraine, and proliferating Africom forces to threats of war for regime change in Syria – we have an obligation to do whatever is possible to educate the public and to take action to stop the carnage.

The wars abroad are connected to global warming with most wars fought over energy resources with the U.S. war machine as the largest polluter.

At home, we see hugely growing income inequality, a militarized and racist police force, mass incarceration of Blacks and Latinos, and a massive police state apparatus that includes global surveillance and laws to quell dissent.

In spite of the trillions spent by the U.S. corporate war government and its controlled media propaganda machine to keep us in check, the people are fighting back.  We’ve been inspired and strengthened by the hundreds of thousands of new activists taking to the streets of this country to stop police brutality, to build Occupy encampments, to fight for decent wages, to demand full rights for immigrants, to win marriage equality, to end global warming, to demonstrate solidarity with the besieged people of Gaza, and to protest unending U.S. wars.

“What would justice, genuine justice, be to the native peoples of this continent? From my perspective as the descendant of some of those settlers and citizen of the state that now strides this land whose birthright was dependent on the historic denial of another’s, the only justice possible is a death sentence on the Empire, whose epitaph will surely contain the words ‘Wounded Knee’, as well as a restoration of collective ownership. An irrevocable removal of those fences, those divisions that the geometry of capitalist expansion knifed into a blood-stained earth.

Wounded Knee: Never Forget, Never Forgive.”

Wounded Knee, December 29th, 1890 is full of meaning. Not just for the Miniconjou and Hunkpapa Lakota who were victims and perished in their hundreds, but for the course of imperial America. Its …

“What treaty that the whites have kept has the red man broken? Not one. What treaty that the white man has ever made with us have they kept? Not one. When I was a boy the Sioux owned the world; the sun rose and set on their land, they sent ten thousand men to battle. Where are the warriors today. Who slew them? Where are our lands? Who owns them?….Sitting Bull

Who are these thugish  men who march against their own brothers and sisters for the banksters and politicians that have stolen from them?  Are they on that much of a power tripping high that they don’t see they are helping the powers that be destroy what is left of their fellow citizen’s civil liberties and rights granted to them by the constitution and bill of rights?  Do they think, in the end, by serving the corrupt they will somehow be saved from the slaughter?  They better think again……~jg
