Demonstration in Defense of DPRK

Date: 
Wed, Aug 16, 2017 - 5:00pm to 8:00pm

City:

Amid increased attacks against the Democratic People's Republic of Korea by Wall Street and the Pentagon, there is a looming threat of war hanging over us. President Trump's comment on unleashing "fire and fury like the world has never seen" is a threat of nuclear conflict not only just for those living on the Korean peninsula, but a potential maelstrom that could engulf DPRK's neighbors as well, such as Russia and China.

The Citizens for Peace will present the film Disturbing the Peace at their July 11 meeting.

War is Not the Answer in Syria: Drop the Ban, Not the Bombs

Date: 
Mon, May 8, 2017 - 4:30pm to 6:00pm

City:

There is no military solution in Syria. Join the Detroit Area Peace with Justice Network for a peace vigil calling for a diplomatic solution. War is never the answer - it's the problem. Signs will be provided.

Dropping bombs is only adding to the violence and inflicting harm, if not death, on the civilians the President claims to be protecting. At the same time, he has proposed cuts to humanitarian aid and UN funding and ignored diplomacy while making it more difficult for refugees to enter the U.S. This is a recipe for failure for everyone except war profiteers.
