No to NATO, Yes to Peace FESTIVAL

Here’s why, and who will be there, and how you can reserve a spot:


End the War on Yemen

Both houses of the U.S. Congress have voted to end U.S. participation in the war on Yemen. Both have to vote again, and may do so very soon.

No to NATO, Yes to Peace Webinar

On March 7, 2019, World BEYOND War hosted a webinar on NATO – the North Atlantic Treaty Organization – and why we’re calling for its abolition. NATO now accounts for three-quarters of all military spending and weapons dealing on the globe. Panelists for this webinar: Ana Maria Gower, a Serbian-British mixed media artist and a survivor of the NATO bombings of Yugoslavia; Jovanni Reyes, member coordinator of About Face: Veterans Against the War and U.S. army veteran who was deployed to the Balkans in 1996 as part of NATO’s first ever military intervention in Yugoslavia; and Kristine Karch, Co-Chair of the international No to War/No to NATO Network. Watch the full video here.

Together with allies, we’ve submitted a proposal for a panel at the Netroots Nation conference in Philadelphia in July. Please check out our proposal and vote for it, which will make it more likely to be approved.
