JIM HABER – WORLD BEYOND WAR
September 30, 2014 @ 6:00 pm - 9:00 pm
Haber is a member of the National Committee of the War Resisters League, Jewish Voice for Peace and the Catholic Worker movement. He will present information on a new initiative to increase public attention in explicit opposition to the institution of war and to confront the big picture problem.
Many causes are ramping up participation in the anti-war movement. They include:
Shutting down military bases , nuclear arms programs and weaponized drones;
Stopping human-induced climate change; resisting fossil fuel extraction and dangerous fuel transport;
Ending sexual violence in universities, the military and societies worldwide;
Ending racist incarceration and police practices; police militarization and the use of military force;
Protecting workers so as to address wage reduction, environmental protection and workplace safety;
Standing up against the increasing income gap between the “haves” and the “have nots.”
The media leads many to think that war and global violence are inevitable and on the rise. Public opinion is moving in the opposite direction. Steps can be taken to move toward war’s reduction and abolition.
