Trump has threatened “to totally destroy North Korea.” Secretary of Defense Mattis has told the U.S. Army “to be ready” for war. We are on a dangerous path towards a military confrontation that could kill millions and engulf the world in a nuclear holocaust.
Come say no war with North Korea—and no nuclear weapons!
November 11 is “Veterans’ Day.” But Veterans for Peace and other groups are calling for the observance of November 11 to be in keeping with the holiday’s original intent as Armistice Day, “a day dedicated to the cause of world peace," as it was celebrated at the end of World War I.
After World War II, the U.S. Congress rebranded November 11 as Veterans Day. Honoring the warriors quickly morphed into glorifying war. Armistice Day has been flipped from a day for peace into a day for displays of militarism.
This year, with a rise of hate and fear around the world, it is especially urgent to ring the bells of peace and reclaim Armistice Day. Our president says diplomacy with North Korea is a waste of time. Diplomacy is in fact the only hope. War is the immoral and tragic waste.
Join us on November 11 to take a stand against war with North Korea, a war that could quickly become nuclear, kill millions of people, and lead to “nuclear winter” with mass starvation.
The world has said it before and is saying it again: NO to WAR! NO to NUCLEAR WEAPONS! Join us!
