WBW News & Action: Don’t Get Yanked into War With China

A petition to President Joe Biden was read aloud in English and Japanese at the White House and at the Embassy of Japan in Washington, D.C., yesterday. The petition and videos are here: ADD YOUR NAME.

Leading up to Peace Day on September 21, we’re hosting a virtual film festival to expose the impact of militarism around the world and the power of nonviolence. The festival will span 3 weekends — Saturday, September 4, September 11, and September 18 — covering a multitude of themes, from colonial violence in Canada and military base pollution in Washington State, to a coup d’état in Haiti and nonviolent peacekeeping in Bougainville. Each film screening will be followed by an exclusive Q&A with the directors and special guests to explore the topics covered in the films and how to take action. Get your tickets!

Sign our petition to the 26th UN Climate summit planned for Glasgow in November. We encourage groups and individuals to organize events to advance this message on or about the International Day of Peace during Climate Week, September 21, 2021, as well as on or about the big day of action in Glasgow on November 4, 2021.
