People from all over the country will descend on Washington, D.C., to say NO to Donald Trump’s War Parade on Veterans' Day weekend.
This is an outrage! It is an obscene glorification of war and a criminal waste of urgently needed money. At this very moment so many working people are unable to pay their
medical bills and rent, millions in Puerto Rico still have no electricity, youth unemployment is still staggering, the drug epidemic is worsening, and the country’s infrastructure is crumbling. The War Parade is aimed at stimulating a new war drive that will bring death and destruction to one (or more) of the countries on the Pentagon hit list, potentially North Korea, Iran, or Venezuela. The over-the-top celebrations of the war machine — in the false guise of “patriotism” — also serve to stifle dissent at home, as Trump has repeatedly shown with his racist attacks on #BlackLivesMatter protesters.
The people of this country, and the world, will not stand for it. We will not be led into the slaughterhouse of war — either as perpetrators or victims — so as to repair a wounded ego or a wounded Empire. Hundreds of thousands will pour into the streets to stop Trump’s agenda of militarism and racism.
