World BEYOND War News: Militarism in the Media

Kick off the New Year with our next webinar!

SAVE THE DATE: Militarism in the Media Webinar on January 15 at 8:00 p.m. Eastern Time

Militarism is the “elephant in the room,” says FAIR founder Jeff Cohen. Former TV pundit for MSNBC, CNN, and Fox, Jeff was fired for shedding light on the perils of U.S. interventionism and in particular, for opposing the invasion of Iraq on the air. Rose Dyson, President of Canadians Concerned About Violence in Entertainment, expresses concern about the culture of war that is perpetuated by TV, music, video games, and social media. Tune in to our Militarism in the Media webinar with experts Rose Dyson and Jeff Cohen to discuss the role of media in promoting war and violence.


New Online Course: War Abolition 101: How we Create a Peaceful World: February 18 – March 31, 2019

How can we make the best argument for shifting from war to peace? What must we understand and know about the war system if we are to dismantle it? These questions and more will be explored in War Abolition 101, a 6-week online course starting February 18. Each week will feature a guest expert who will help you explore weekly topics through an online chat room. Weekly content includes a mix of text, images, video, and audio. We’ll dismantle the myths of war, and delve into its alternatives, concluding the course with organizing and action ideas. Learn more and reserve your spot.


No to NATO — Yes to Peace Festival

The North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO) plans a summit, or at least a “celebration” in Washington, D.C., April 4, 2019, to mark 70 years since its creation on April 4, 1949. We plan a peace festival to advocate the abolition of NATO, the promotion of peace, the redirection of resources to human and environmental needs, the demilitarization of our cultures, and the commemoration of Martin Luther King Jr.’s speech against war on April 4, 1967, as well as his assassination on April 4, 1968.
