▶ David Swanson: The Campaign to End All War

Video: The Campaign To End All War

By Dennis Trainor, Jr.  January 14th, 2014  www.acronymtv.wordpress.com  PopularResistance.org  

In this interview with David Swanson, we discuss a campaign, still in its planning stages, to eliminate “the institution of war as an acceptable enterprise for the human species.” Visiting the website WorldBeyondWar.org, one is prompted to sign a simple two sentence  pledge that reads:

“I understand that wars and militarism make us less safe rather than protect us, that they kill, injure and traumatize adults, children and infants, severely damage the natural environment, erode civil liberties, and drain our economies, siphoning resources from life-affirming activities. I commit to engage in and support nonviolent efforts to end all war and preparations for war and to create a sustainable and just peace.”

Our guest on the show was David Swanson.
