Wayne Goes Cycling to Raise Money for Soldiers Heart!

The War Stops Here
A New Blog

This blog is intended to be a regularly updated hub for those who take anti-war work seriously and want to learn what other people are doing, and to let new people know that there are ways to tangibly grind this war to a halt.

We're finally at a stage in the antiwar movement where there is something to report in terms of creative, militant direct actions against the occupation of Iraq happening right here in the US. It's happening on campuses, at ports, in the Capitol, in small towns and in big cities. 

The main purpose is to put forward the alternatives that have been advocated for a long time; that are now taking shape. It's really a wonderful time to be a part of this movement; it is not hard to feel a re-awakening and a shift in movement politics. The time when a handful of groups and individuals can monopolize the direction of the movement is coming to a close.

Stop the United States From Launching a New Nuclear Arms Race!

 

New Nuclear Weapons Complex 
(Complex 2030)

"Although national security is widely perceived to depend on military strength, more weapons do not provide enduring security. Military expansion provokes fear and potential retaliation. Threats tend to increase the hostility and distrust that lead to war. We believe that nations must move toward comprehensive disarmament. We urge multilateral disarmament, supported by the conversion of military industries to the production of civilian goods and services, and the retraining of personnel toward that end. We also advocate that the United States take unilateral steps toward its own disarmament, believing that other nations will respond affirmatively to this example. The risks of disarmament are far smaller than the risks involved in the current course of weapons stockpiling and development."

About Connecticut Coalition For Peace and Justice (CCPJ)

The Connecticut Coalition to Stop Star Wars was borne in the summer of 2001, following the stirring words of Bruce Gagnon of the Global Network Against Weapons and Nuclear Power in Space. At first, the diverse group was established to combat the disasterous missile defense system of President Bush II. But the events of 9/11/01 changed everything for the group, including its name. The Connecticut Coalition for Peace and Justice (CCPJ) has worked ardently to pursue peace and justice since 9/11, but while broadening its message, it still holds to its founding principle of combatting Star Wars.

CCPJ meets every week on Monday evening => No Longer Meeting on a Regular Basis

7:30 PM at the Quaker Meeting House, 144 South Quaker Lane, West Hartford
