WBW News: This Video Entertains and Informs

NATO must be loving phony “resistance.” This week, NATO’s Secretary-General credited Trump with strengthening NATO and getting its members to spend a lot more on weapons, and the U.S. House of Representatives, including every Democrat who voted, voted to prevent Trump from withdrawing from NATO. You can’t make this stuff up, but you can laugh about it.

Watch this video from Lee Camp, who will be at the No to NATO — Yes to Peace FESTIVAL in April:


Lee Camp is not the only one who will be there in April. We’ll have Nadine Bloch leading the nonviolent action prep workshops, and musician Eric Colville, plus other great musicians to be announced soon. We’ll have speakers including Hoor Arifi from Afghanistan, Brittany DeBarros from the Poor People’s Campaign, Serbian-British artist Ana Maria Gower, and Karlene Griffiths Sekou from Black Lives Matter, former U.S. Marine officer and government official who resigned from his position over the escalation of the Afghan War Matthew Ho, plus Lucas Wirl from Germany, and Maria Zakharova from Crimea.

We’ll also have protest-art creation leaders, plus great artwork and interactive booths. Also: delicious food and drink.
