Tomorrow-March For Our Lives – ATLANTA

Sat, March 24 at 11 AM

Center for Civil and Human Rights
100 Ivan Allen Jr Blvd NW, Atlanta, Georgia 30313

Not one more. We cannot allow one more child to be shot at school. We cannot allow one more teacher to make a choice to jump in front of a firing assault rifle to save the lives of students. We cannot allow one more family to wait for a call or text that never comes. Our schools are unsafe. Our children and teachers are dying. We must make it our top priority to save these lives.

March For Our Lives is created by, inspired by, and led by students across the country who will no longer risk their lives waiting for someone else to take action to stop the epidemic of mass school shootings that has become all too familiar. In the tragic wake of the seventeen lives brutally cut short in Florida, politicians are telling us that now is not the time to talk about guns. March For Our Lives believes the time is now.

On March 24, the kids and families of March For Our Lives will take to the streets of Atlanta, GA to demand that their lives and safety become a priority. The collective voices of the March For Our Lives movement will be heard.

School safety is not a political issue. There cannot be two sides to doing everything in our power to ensure the lives and futures of children who are at risk of dying when they should be learning, playing, and growing. The mission and focus of March For Our Lives is to demand that a comprehensive and effective bill be immediately brought before Congress to address these gun issues. No special interest group, no political agenda is more critical than timely passage of legislation to effectively address the gun violence issues that are rampant in our country.

Every kid in this country now goes to school wondering if this day might be their last. We live in fear. It doesn’t have to be this way. Change is coming. And it starts now, inspired by and led by the kids who are our hope for the future. Their young voices will be heard.

Stand with us on March 24. Refuse to allow one more needless death.

MARCH FOR OUR LIVES!

ATL Demands End US Wars

Saturday, April 14

12 PM – 2 PM
Little Five Points
Atlanta, Georgia 30307

The Trump administration’s ominous nuclear threats on North Korea, escalation of criminal wars in Afghanistan, Syria, Yemen, a coupe threat in Venezuela, new threats on Palestine and huge increases in military spending endanger us all.

We face the dangerous growth of white supremacist forces, escalating raids and round ups of migrant workers, increasing attacks on the rights of workers and communities of color and the slashing of social programs.

The time is now to build unity and return to the streets to make out voices heard.

We are United
Opposed all US wars, nuclear threats, sanctions, coups and foreign bases
Fund Human Needs. Not endless wars.
Solidarity with oppressed peoples under attack at home and abroad

Spring Actions April 14-15, 2018

End the Wars at Home and Abroad!

 The time is now to return to the street to make our voices heard. Join us on April 14-15 for united, nationally coordinated regional mobilizations to challenge the war makers and defend humanity. The future is in our hands.

– End U.S. overt and covert wars, drone wars, sanction/embargo wars, and death squad assassination wars.

— Close of all U.S. bases on foreign soil. Dismantle all nuclear weapons.

— Bring all U.S. troops home now. Self-determination not military intervention. U.S. hands off the Middle East, Africa, Asia and

Latin America. End military aid to apartheid Israel. Self-determination for Palestine. The U.S. cannot be the cop of the world.

– $Trillions for human needs… for jobs and social services, quality debt-free education and single payer health care. No to anti-

union legislation. For $15 and a Union Now.

– Defend the environment against life-threatening fossil fuel-induced global warming. For a just transition to a 100 percent
clean, sustainable energy system at union wages for all displaced workers.

— No to white supremacy, police brutality/murder. End racist mass incarceration. Black Lives Matter

— No human being is illegal. No to mass deportations. Yes to DACA and TPS (Temporary Protective Status)

The U.S. government and its leading Pentagon generals openly and repeatedly threatened nuclear war or massive military intervention against sovereign nations. Such is the case today with North Korea, Iran and Venezuela. Simultaneously, U.S. military forces are at war in several nations including Afghanistan, Iraq, Syria, Yemen, and Somalia. Hundreds of U.S. military bases circle the globe in more than 170 foreign countries at the cost of $trillions while these same $trillions are subtracted from critical social programs at home. $Trillions in tax cuts and corporate bailouts are granted to the super rich while the war at home takes on virulent racist, sexist, anti-immigrant, Islamophobic and homophobic forms. Join us!

Protest Saturday in Atlanta: Tell Israel: Stop the Deportations of African Refugees and Free Tamimis

Tell Israel: 
and join global action to Free the Tamimis
Join us for a Protest this Saturday February 17 

at the Israeli consulate of Atlanta 

1100 Spring Street, Atlanta

11:00am-1:00pm

The Jewish principle of Pikuach Nefesh (literally, “saving a life”) holds that the preservation of human life overrides all other religious considerations and requires that a person do everything in their power to save a person’s life. These refugees’ lives are at stake. So we are standing our ground protesting the deportations, even— perhaps especially— on Shabbat, because it is required of all of us, regardless of background. And we are standing ground for the childhood and lives of Palestinian children and women detained and imprisoned, fighting for their freedom. 

sign this statement if you have not yet to tell Israel: 

Stop deportation, end racist incitement, abide by international law,  and grant asylum

Join CODEPINK’s Week of Action to Divest from the War Machine February 5-11, 2018

United For Peace and Justice along with many of our members groups have joined the Coalition to Divest from the War Machine and are preparing to be part of CODEPINK’s week of action, February 5-11. The War Machine prioritizes “defense” and corporate interests over human rights, military spending over diplomacy and aid, preparing for combat over preventing wars, and profit over human life and the health of the planet.

The War Machine is a massive, global, U.S. military apparatus that operates largely thanks to an alliance between the arms industry and policy makers. The companies that are part of this War Machine earn their profits from the spread of war and militarism.  Their priorities are not our priorities!!

As we join together to take action against the War Machine here are some ways to get started in your community—then check out additional information at Divest from the War Machine.
