End abuses of human rights and civil liberties in “War on Terror” cases, often against Muslims

End abuses of human rights and civil liberties in “War on Terror” cases, often against Muslims.
“No Separate Justice!”.

No Separate Justice! campaign is a coalition of community groups, academics, family members and human rights and civil liberties organizations including Amnesty International USA, the Center for Constitutional Rights, the Council On American-Islamic Relations (CAIR)-New York, and Educators for Civil Liberties. Brooklyn For Peace supports and endorses this campaign. “No Separate Justice” exposes and works to end a pattern of human rights and civil liberties abuses in “War on Terror” cases in the U.S. criminal justice system. Many of these cases are against Muslims or people associated with Muslim groups.

Monday October 6: Vigil highlights the case of Dritan, Shain and Eljvir Duka, 3 brothers who all received life sentences in part of one of the most egregious post-911 entrapment cases to date, the Fort Dix Five case. They left behind 6 children who are being raised now by the Duka grandparents.

10/25 SAT, 10/26 SUN + 10/31FRI: Trick or Treat for UNICEF 2014

It’s Trick or Treat for UNICEF season! This year will mark the 64th Anniversary of Trick-or-Treat for UNICEF.

Join Brooklyn For Peace and walk in The Park Slope Halloween Parade Monday, October 31, 2o14. The Halloween Parade route will start at 11th Street and 7th Avenue and end at the Old Stone House right off 5th Avenue in Brooklyn.

We need volunteers! 

  • The Saturday before Halloween, 10/25, we need volunteers to help hand out Unicef collecting boxes at the Grand Army NYC Greenmarket and then on Sunday, 10/26, at the Farmers Market at 5th Ave. & 3rd St.
  • On Halloween, 10/31, we need volunteers to staff collection boxes along the parade route on Halloween Monday October 31 from 4:00 to 8:00 p.m.

For more than 60 years, Trick-or-Treat for UNICEF has served as the Original Kids Helping Kids campaign. In 1950, children across America were inspired to collect coins for UNICEF to aid children abroad enduring the after-effects of World War II. It was not just a charity effort—it was a call to end the needless suffering of their more vulnerable peers around the globe. Since then, for generations of Americans, Trick-or-Treat for UNICEF has been a powerful way to make a difference in the lives of the world’s children

Please join us again to support this important event. I hope we can count on you to help.

Anyone who would like to have UNICEF boxes delivered anywhere in the city, you can call 1-800-FOR-KIDS. Usually they need 2 days notice to deliver.

No Weaponized and Surveillance Drones in NYC!!

Lets Say NO!! to Weaponized and Surveillance Drones in NYC.
E-mail grannypeace@gmail.com to receive information on how you can participate in campaign to get NYC Council to vote against bringing drones into NYC.

Check out KnowDrones and Granny Peace Brigade  for info on drones, especially in NYC.

In an article in the May 20 edition of the New York Daily News, reporter Tina Moore comments on William Bratton’s support for the concept of drones in the following way: “Police Commissioner Bill Bratton said the unmanned machines equipped with cameras and tiny microphones could help spy on crime hotspots–like housing projects, where shootings are up about 32% this year.”

Although it’s unlikely that Bratton was naive enough to utter those exact words, it is probable that spying on the citizenry of New York is indeed what he intends to do. His exact words were, “Myself, I’m supportive of the concept of drones, not only for police but for public safety in general . . . It’s something that we actively keep looking at and stay aware of.”

With this warning ringing in our ears, we’re heading for 125th Street to alert the citizenry that drones will be coming–if not tomorrow, certainly within a few years.

No More Hiroshimas! No More Nagasakis! No More Fukushimas!

Did you know??
In March 2013, Norway hosted a conference in Oslo on the Humanitarian Impacts of Nuclear Weapons, with 127 governments in attendance. The US boycotted this conference! A follow-on conference is scheduled in Mexico in early 2014. The U.S. has not committed to attending.

In May 2013, a new United Nations working group began meeting in Geneva “to develop proposals to take forward multilateral nuclear disarmament negotiations for the achievement and maintenance of a world without nuclear weapons.”  The first ever UN High-Level Meeting on Nuclear Disarmament will take place on September 26, 2013,  in New York.  But, the US is refusing to participate in the UN Disarmament Working Group, and has been silent on the September meeting.
