Pivoting for Peace in Asia-Pacific
CHALLENGING US MILITARISM AND CORPORATE DOMINANCE
Saturday, April 19, 9:30 am to 5:00 pm
Cambridge Friends Meeting, 5 Longfellow Park (off Brattle St)
Though most Americans don’t realize it, we’ve come to the brink of war – potentially nuclear war – twice in the last two years, first during tensions with North Korea and then over the Senkaku/ Diaoyu Islands. Our hundreds of military bases have devastating impacts on people in “host” communities. And TPP will cost us jobs, worsen working conditions and assault the environment, all to increase U.S. economic leverage over China and further maximize corporate profits and power.
This one day conference will bring us to date on what is happening in Asia/ Pacific, how it will affect us here at home, and what we can do. Join us as we build our ability to pivot for peace, instead of for war.
Registration $10; registration plus lunch $20. Donations to the event beyond the cost of registration and lunch are tax-deductible. They are needed to meet the travel costs for our speakers.
Sponsored by American Friends Service Committee, Massachusetts Peace Action, United for Justice with Peace, Asian American Resource Workshop, and MoveOn.org Boston Council
