WBW News & Action: Events for Peace

November 2, 2020

Here is our new guide to using billboards to generate media, membership, and activism. The billboard pictured above in Milwaukee, where it generated a lot of media and events, will be going up this week in St. Louis. Our new idea is, now that 50 nations have ratified the Treaty on the Prohibition of Nuclear Weapons, to put up billboards in Europe asking the United States to get its illegal weapons out of the continent. We’re looking for more ideas and more funding. Help out here.

Free Webinar: What About World War II? This free webinar, open to all, will feature David Swanson, Executive Director of World BEYOND War, discussing the “What about WWII?” question so popular among supporters of military spending, and the history of Armistice Day. Organized by: Peace Action of Broome County, NY and Stu Naismith Chapter 90 Veterans for Peace of Broome County, NY, U.S. Participants will be able to ask questions via chat and by clicking the “raise hand” button for a turn to speak. All perspectives are welcomed and encouraged. Register here.

Armistice / Remembrance Day #103 is November 11, 2020 — 102 years since World War I was ended at a scheduled moment (11 o’clock on the 11th day of the 11th month in 1918 — killing an extra 11,000 people after the decision to end the war had been reached early in the morning). Find, list, or create an event.


Stop the killing.
There is no equivalence of blame or anything else here. Read this article and watch this video.But the surest way for the world to stop the killing is to embargo all weapons to both sides. Sign the petition, share it with others who can also sign and share it. We can deliver it to governments around the world.

Our latest campaign to ban militarized policing is with a coalition of groups in Portland, Orgeon. Work with us to make this happen where you are.
