People’s Climate March, NYC, September 21, 2014

What a day! Historic, memorable, uplifiting, spirited. Estimates of over 300,000 people, young, old and diverse, marching through the streets of our city. They came just as the world’s political leaders meet to discuss climate change at the United Nations.

See the photos from the People’s Climate March on Sunday, September 21 from Matthew Weinstein.

They came to wake up and shake up those leaders with simple demands:

ACT NOW to prevent further climate change.

ACT NOW before catastrophic and irreversible damage changes our planet forever.

ACT NOW so that our children and their children will have a planet that they can actually live on.

ACT NOW, not years from now when it will be too late.

Brooklyn For Peace joined other peace and justice organizations. But the march represented a vast array of different organizations and just plain citizens concerned about the future of civilization. The spirit was one of camaraderie and a feeling that this movement for change was only just beginning to find itself and that it would grow and become broader and more powerful.

We came away, uplifted and optimistic. This is a titanic battle to push back against the enormous monetary power of Big Oil and Big Energy which have shown they control Congress and countries….they have the money….we have the people. It’s a battle for the future of our world as we know it today. The outcome is still undecided but today’s march shows clearly that those ominous forces have not yet won and they’ll have a powerful foe in the hundreds of thousands who marched today.

Announcements of other activities to end war against Gaza

Follow the current status of attack on Gaza with headlines and background on Democracy Now!

We’ve personally delivered 2167 signatures on our petition for peace to Rep Hakeem Jeffries, and faxed or mailed them to Senators Schumer and Gillibrand, Representatives Clarke, Grimm, Nadler, Velazquez, and to President Obama.

Our Petition calls on President and Congress to:

  • Condemn the immoral war that is devastating the civilians of Gaza.
  • Press for an immediate negotiated cease fire to end all attacks on civilians on both sides.
  • End the one-sided and unquestioning support of Israel by the U.S. government.
  • End the $3.1 billion U.S. annual military support for Israel until it complies with international law.

We’ll be collecting more signatures on line. If you haven’t signed yet, you can sign here.

BFP Statement:
Israel’s Rampage of Violence Against the Palestinians

The wrenching events unfolding in Israel and Palestine aren’t random or isolated. They’re part of the system of occupation itself.

16 year-old Mohammed Abu Khudair was found dead in East Jerusalem, the victim of what appears to be a “price tag” attack following the killing of three Israeli teenagers on the West Bank. He was the 10th Palestinian killed by the army of right-wing extremists in the last two weeks.

Brooklyn for Peace mourns his death as we do all lost lives. And we also know we must speak the truth, so that we may change the conditions that make such unthinkable violence possible in the first place.

The ongoing Israeli occupation is at the heart of this crisis.

Don’t Go Back to Iraq!
Five Steps the U.S. Can Take
Resources to Inform Yourself

By , June 20, 2014.
http://fpif.org/wars-begin-can-stopped/

This is how wars begin:

Barack Obama says we’re not going back to Iraq. “American forces will not be returning to combat in Iraq,” he said on June 19th, “but we will help Iraqis as they take the fight to terrorists who threaten the Iraqi people, the region, and American interests as well.”

The White House says it’s “only” sending 275 soldiers to protect the embassy, it’s only sending 300 Special Forces, they’re only “advisers” There’s only one aircraft carrier in the region, they say, and a few other warships. They’re considering missile strikes but they[re not going to send ground troops.

Action Alert: Tell President Obama:
Don’t Add Fuel to the Fire in Iraq!

Action Alert: Tell President Obama:
Don’t Add Fuel to the Fire in Iraq!

Some in Congress and the media are calling for U.S. military intervention in the Iraq crisis.
U.S. air or drone strikes, increased arms transfers and deployment of U.S. troops as “trainers” will only make matters worse.
Have they learned nothing?

Please take action to let the president know that more war is not the answer.
Use this template for a letter to the President which you can personalize to give your letter a stronger impact.
