It’s a weaving together rather than domination of one over the other. A lesson for all.
Protesting the NATO’s 70th anniversary: The peace movement’s counter-actions in Washington & NATO’s Ministerial Summit
The core statements of the action appealed to the many tourists that strolled around DC: disarming for social affairs, protecting the environment and stopping climate change and, naturally, no wars or interventions – “hands-off Venezuela!” and “No to NATO!”
“NATO and a just, peaceful and sustainable world are incompatible…. It is an unjust, undemocratic, violent and aggressive alliance trying to shape the world for the benefit of a few.”
On March 30, 2019 protesters gathered in DC to rally and march in a No to NATO, Hands Off Venezuela protest at the White House at the beginning of a week of activities around NATO’s 70th anniversary being celebrated in Washington this year. April 4th is also the anniversary of Martin Luther King’s Beyond Vietnam: A Time to Break Silence speech and of his assassination one years later.
“Beyond Vietnam: A Time to Break Silence”
To King, the Vietnam War was only the most pressing symptom of American colonialism worldwide.
It’s almost time to unwelcome NATO! “No Compromise, No Retreat in the Fight to End Militarism and War” (Black Alliance of Peace)

It was a classic set-up, and it is patently obvious, in hindsight, that NATO’s Godfathers had no intention whatever of abiding by the solemn assurance that the alliance would “not expand one inch to the east.”
