Posted: March 5, 2015 in Call to Action, Fight war and war mongers, Solidarity

Word was received today about plans for a Spring Rising, An Anti War Intervention in Washington DC from ANSWER Coalition. A series of events will be held just as the ongoing U.S. war in Iraq — recently restarted in a new form — passes the 12-year mark since the March 2003 invasion.

Here’s the schedule so far:

Wednesday, March 18: Peace gathering and fellowship.

Thursday, March 19th: Lobbying on Capitol Hill, followed by a tour of the war machine: homes and offices of war criminals.

Friday, March 20th: Afternoon and evening teach-in: Ending Current Wars, Ending the Institution of War.
This event will examine ISIS and U.S. warmaking in Western Asia and elsewhere; the damage militarism does to the natural environment, economies, and civil rights; and how the war system can be replaced with a peace system.

Saturday, March 21st: Protest at the White House, followed by march.

This nonviolent intervention was originally proposed by Cindy Sheehan’s Soapboxand the Soapbox People’s Network. It has been endorsed and will be supported byAmnesty International Charlottesville, the ANSWER Coalition, the Bill of Rights Defense Committee, the Baltimore Pledge of Resistance, Glenn Ford Executive Director of The Black Agenda Report, CND CYMRU,  CODEPINK, the Granny Peace Brigade of New York City, KnowDrones.com, Maryland United for Peace and Justice, Military Families Speak Out, the National Campaign for Nonviolent Resistance, the Network to Stop Drone Surveillance and Warfare, The No Fear Coalition,  United National Antiwar Coalition, Veterans For Peace, Voices for Creative Non-Violence, WarIsACrime.orgWashington Peace Center, Witness Against Torture, World Beyond War, and World Can’t Wait.
