By World BEYOND War, November 29, 2020
Thus far, people in 187 countries have signed our pledge to work to end all war. See which countries are on the list here. Sign if you haven’t already here.
December 4 Webinar: AFRICOM & Human Rights in Africa. Did you know that the U.S. military has 29 military bases in 15 countries across Africa? The U.S. military established AFRICOM in 2008, despite the majority of African nations rejecting it. Under a false guise of providing security, the U.S. uses its military force to impose control of African land, resources, and labor to serve the needs of U.S. multi-national corporations. Join us for what will be an eye-opening, fact-filled webinar featuring first-hand reports about what the U.S. military is really doing in Africa.
December 7 Webinar: Glory: The Deadliest Drug. In this webinar, Yale Magrass and Charles Derber, authors of Glorious Causes, will consider how elites galvanize people for war and bring them to adopt political-economic identities which contradict their rational self-interest. Join us for a master course in resisting war propaganda.
December 16 Webinar: Peace through Permaculture & Farming. How do we tackle something as large as the twin threats of war and climate change? This unique webinar will explore the intersections between permaculture, farming, simple living, and anti-war activism. World BEYOND War’s Organizing Director Greta Zarro, who is also a co-founder of Unadilla Community Farm, a non-profit organic farm and permaculture education center, will moderate this interesting discussion. Join us!
