What: One Nation Working Together
Who: A broad-based national coalition of labor, racial and economic justice groups, community organizations, and antiwar organizations.
Where: Washington D.C. on the steps of the Lincoln Memorial
When: Saturday, October 2
As the U.S. expenditure on war is at an all-time high of over $700 billion per year, the people of the U.S. are enduring the worst economic collapse since the Great Depression. This is having a devastating effect on our communities, with half of our tax dollars going to support wars and not human needs, and increased militarism at home and at our borders. It is clear that these wars are not good for anyone–not the people living in the countries we’re occupying, not the troops who are fighting these imperialist wars, and not the people of the U.S.
War Resisters League and other antiwar groups are organizing important new partnerships to end war and slash the bloated and immoral U.S. military budget. One Nation Working Together is a historic coming together of movements for peace and justice, initiated by groups including the NAACP, 1199 SEIU, the National Council of La Raza, Green for All, Center for Community Change, and the United States Student Association. We need your support to strengthen our movement and bring peace activists to the October 2nd One Nation Working Together demonstration.
On October 2, peace activists will march on Washington D.C., joining civil rights, labor, immigrant justice, environmental and other progressive organizations to demand:
- Jobs and economic recovery
- Cuts in military spending to fund human needs
- Peace abroad and renewable energy at home
Members of the War Resisters League are headed to Washington D.C. on October 2nd. Will you be there?
Join WRL along with peace and social justice organizations from all over the country and stand with the rest of the people around the world in calling for justice, not just for the people of the U.S., but for all people, an end to U.S. wars and occupations, and the defunding of the military budget.
If you plan on going, please let us know! WRL members will be joining with many other antiwar groups that day to march in solidarity with those most affected by militarism. We would love for you to march with us! Send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org or call 212-228-0450 Ext. 12.
