Remembering Past Wars . . . and Preventing the Next — San Francisco Event May 25

Remembering Past Wars . . . and Preventing the Next

A century since World War I and a half-century since the Vietnam War, a group of authors will discuss new lessons learned and new activism underway.​

World War I was advertised as a war to end all wars. Big nations have been trying to use war to end war for a century now with little success. When Martin Luther King Jr. spoke against the U.S. war in Vietnam, he proposed ending the institution of war, not mending it. Has the time come at last to end all war?

6-8 p.m. May 25, 2017, Koret Auditorium, San Francisco Public Library, 100 Larkin St, San Francisco, CA 94102

  1. Will this be recorded and shared?? I certainly hope so! Would have been nice to learn about it before the day before!

    Lots of people who live even farther from SF than I do would be glad to have a chance to hear the speakers.

    Thank you!

    1. Yes it will. It’s been posted here and broadcast everywhere possible including to everyone on our email list within 100 miles for months. Most things most people will never hear about. It’s just a law of activism. It should never be taken to mean that the organizers haven’t been screaming at the top of our lungs about it 🙂
