A Note From Rise Up Times

Global and local peace and justice for all 

Be engaged in activism

Normalize Resistance       Rest and Rise

__________________________________________________America is at risk. Rise Up. Turne In. Turn on. RESIST

NEW LANGUAGE

NEW GLOBAL POWER FORMATIONS

 NEW MODES OF POLITICS

“Power is global and politics is local. That must change. We need a new language for understanding new global power formations as well as new international modes of politics to fight them.

Social movements must move outside of national boundaries and join with others across the globe to fight the savagery of neoliberal global politics and central to such a task is the work of intellectuals, artists, cultural workers, and others who can fashion new tools and social movements in the fight against the current anti-democratic threats being imposed all over the globe.”

                              S                            — Henry A. Giroux

ABOLISH NUCLEAR WEAPONS

The ‘apocalyptic’ chess game between the superpowers, that is, between those that move on the highest plane of our civilization, is being played according to the rule ‘if either “wins” it is the end of both’; it is a game that bears no resemblance to whatever war games preceded it. Its ‘rational’ goal is deterrence, not victory, and the arms race, no longer a preparation for war, can now be justified only on the grounds that more and more deterrence is the best guarantee of peace. To the question how shall we ever be able to extricate ourselves from  the obvious insanity of this position there is no answer.”

— Hannah Arendt in On Violence

NUCLEAR WEAPONS ARE NOW ILLEGAL!

The U.S. needs to join other countries worldwide in
