This space is dedicated to the proposition that we need to know the history of the struggles on the left and of earlier progressive movements here and world-wide. If we can learn from the mistakes made in the past (as well as what went right) we can move forward in the future to create a more just and equitable society. We will be reviewing books, CDs, and movies we believe everyone needs to read, hear and look at as well as making commentary from time to time. Greg Green, site manager

Celebrate Armistice Day on Sunday November 11, 2018! Armistice Day is Around the Corner!
Celebrate Armistice Day on Sunday November 11, 2018!
Armistice Day is only 5 days away, and once again, Veterans For Peace is taking the lead to#ReclaimArmisticeDay. This year, as we celebrate the 100th Anniversary of Armistice Day we call for November 11 to be observed as “a day dedicated to the cause of world peace," as it was celebrated at the ending of World War I when the world came together to recognize the need for lasting peace.
Instead of celebrating militarism, we call for a celebration of peace and all of humanity. We demand an end to all forms of hate, patriarchy and white supremacy and we call for unity, fair treatment under the law and equality for all. We call for a tearing down of walls between borders and people. We call for an end to all hostilities at home and around the globe.
Join VFP and many other peace groups in Washington, D.C. to celebrate the cancellation of the Trump Military parade and join together for a weekend of eventsincluding a solemn veteran-led silent march on Armistice Day.
