Our grief is not a cry for endless war

Friday, November 20, 2015
12:00 PM - 1:00 PM
Event Type:
Press Conference
Location Details:
Polk Street steps of San Francisco City Hall


With the escalation of deadly air attacks in Syria by US/NATO and allies – with the hue and cry being whipped up against refugees and immigrants, and under the crescendo of calls from the forces of repression for more such repression – another voice needs to be heard. Come to a rally/speak-out/press conference to raise this much-needed voice.

This action is jointly initiated by World Can’t Wait, CODEPINK and OccupySF Action Council.

We’re at a moment when it is not sufficient to identify with the people of France and denounce that violence of last Friday (which we must do of course). All people of conscience must also see that the lives of people across the Middle East living and dying under the rain of bombs are equally important with the lives of ourselves in the U.S., France, and anywhere else in the West.

The drums beating for more war are very loud. And there is a crying need for there to be a strong counter to this – we hope, comprised of many voices! – representing people in the U.S. who refuse to let the cruel and horrible Paris events be a justification for supporting further aggressions by the U.S. and its allies whether that be more drones, more invasions, more bombing strikes purportedly aimed at “bad guys” but which consistently and continually create a mounting civilian death toll.

Outside City Hall this Friday we will assemble, representing different groups distinguished by many political differences -- but we will unite to say we all refuse the dangerous agenda of heightened war and military aggression, and the attendant escalations in repression that do accompany these moves.

JOIN US this Friday to call for an immediate end to U.S./NATO airstrikes and targeted killings. Retaliation for the devastating events in Paris that left 129 dead is the worst possible response to the reactionary Islamist movement dominating parts of the Middle East. And will add more refugees to the millions desperately trying to survive endless wars for empire. We call for an immediate end to U.S./NATO airstrikes and targeted killings.

The U.S. Judge who chaired the trials wrote into International World Law that the planning and doing of Aggressive War is the Supreme international crime on the planet Earth, as it actuates all other crimes high, low, big and small. Here is how he exactly says that...."War is essentially and evil intitiate a war of aggression,therefore,is not only an international crime; it is the supreme international crime differing only from other war crimes in that it contains within itself the accumulated evil of the whole." He further says that aggressive war is the supreme international crime whether Germany does it or the UK- U.S.A does it.

Too bad the U.S. empire does not heed the supreme international law to which the whole world considers the real and only true law guiding the world's people to liberation as world disarmament of WMD-weapons of mass destruction and that truly ends aggressive war around the world.

Instead the U.S. Imperialist system is manufacturing and selling more weapons of mass destruction thusly causing aggressive war of continue destroying the ecological, organic balances of the planets web-of-life. Essentially a worst of all evil things.

The need now is for ending aggressive war with weapons of mass destruction and turning all technology into a means of making a living.

Destruction of the web-of-life is not production of the things that continue life. It is two different agendas contending for domination.

Essentially then, we the people, need to Re-tool the entire industrial revolution to renewable energy such as wind, tidal, and solar power transformed to electricity, which is more power than all the polluting fossil fuels.

Renewable energy sources can end fossil fuels such as, the non-renewable energy sources including coal, gas, oil and nuclear fission atomic power plants.

You yet have a world to win!! Elect women equally, doubling the democracy in America. Workers of the world unite!!
