World BEYOND War is Growing! In the past month, we’re excited to announce that 4 new WBW chapters have launched: India, Afghanistan, Bioregión Aconcagua (Chile), and Montréal! Chapters carry out WBW’s mission of war abolition in their communities, through organizing events and campaigns to advance peace & justice. This week, Montréal for a World BEYOND War gathered for their first action on Remembrance/Armistice Day. Read about their efforts to promote peace and to challenge the glamorization of war.
Divest Chicago from the War Machine Campaign: This week, World BEYOND War, along with allies at CODEPINK, met with the Offices of Alderwomen King, Rodriguez-Sanchez, and Hadden to ask for their support in our campaign to divest the City of Chicago from weapons manufacturers and military contractors. The campaign, which has been endorsed by the Chicago Anti-War Coalition and Chicago Area Peace Action among other groups, is building momentum towards introducing a city council resolution to direct the City’s pension funds to divest. We have already received verbal support from half a dozen aldermen (city council members) for this initiative. Stay tuned for details!
