End the Wars - Troops Home Now!
U.S. Hands Off Venezuela
Say NO to NATO, U.S. Wars, Nuclear Weapons & Racism
Saturday, March 30, 2019
1:30 pm, Lake Street & Minnehaha Ave, Minneapolis
Be part of a visible anti-war presence with signs and banners!
As NATO will be starting its 2019 summit in Washington, DC, a coalition of organizations will hold a mobilization to oppose NATO, war and racism. U.S. wars, with support from NATO allies, continue around the world. A new nuclear arms race is threatening, and U.S. military intervention is threatened in Venezuela, with Colombia, a NATO “partner,” playing a role in the U.S. moves against Venezuela.
Join the March 30 protest to send an anti-war message!

Major Todd E. Pierce
Retired Judge Advocate (JAG) officer. His last position in the military was as Defense Counsel before the Military Commissions at Guantanamo Bay, Cuba. He completed his M.A. in Politics at the New School in 2018 with a focus on the political though of Hannah Arendt, and U.S. Imperial History.
On April 4, 1967, Dr, King delivered his 'Beyond Vietnam' anti-war speech. He was tragically assassinated one year later. On April 4, 1949, the North Atlantic Treaty was signed, marking the inception of the NATO military alliance. In light of Dr. King's denunciation of militarism, an examination of the relevance of NATO is overdue.
Dr. King's words linking the three evils of American society: Militarism, Racism and Poverty and his deeply profound remark that every bomb that falls on other countries is a bomb dropped on our inner cities, reveal the deep-rooted relationship between militarism and the social, racial, economic and environmental injustices that now impoverish cities and rural communities and have plagued our society and the world for a long time.
Sponsored by the Minnesota Peace Action Coalition.
Cosponsored by Women Against Military Madness and Veterans for Peace Chapter 27.
