Say NO to U.S. Wars

On the 19th anniversary of the 2003 devastating U.S. war on Iraq, peace-loving people rallied in cities and towns around the nation to protest endless U.S. wars. The rallies at this time especially focused on the current U.S./NATO war with Russia, in which Ukraine serves as a proxy. At the same time that we oppose this war in whatever way we can, we don’t forget that there have been other wars in which the U.S. has been active. This issue of our newsletter is a fresh reminder of some of these other wars and a glimpse into the catastrophic effect they have had on people’s lives. At the same time, we are reminded that while the national treasury is tragically used to kill and destroy in other countries, it could have been used to supply unmet human needs within our own country such as affordable housing, healthcare and education.
