Divest from War Coalition Digest – February

BarakaPledges.jpg

Dear Supporters,

Your Divest from the War Machine coalition is working hard and picking up steam. The pressure is growing on Congresspersons to divest from war! Now we’re asking our mayors to divest from war. We created a pledge specifically for mayors to show us their willingness to work on divesting their cities and towns from the war machine. But first, we need to get the word out… Ras J. Baraka, the mayor of Newark, New Jersey, signed the pledge and agreed to lead other U.S. mayors!

Fill out this form if you want to help get your mayor working for peace.

10_Good_Things_Medea_Benjamin.jpg

Yes, you could say I’m trying to put lipstick on a pig. 2018 was a year of whiplash, a never-ending series of assaults on our environment, immigrants, people of color, Muslims, Jews, the poor, international law. But there is light at the end of the tunnel and here are some rousing points of light from 2018, both domestic and international.

LOCAL PEACE ECONOMY: DISPATCHES FROM US/MEXICO

WHY ARE THEY AFRAID OF JAKELIN?

By Kelly Curry

Right now I am standing at the edge of the sea…where the country known as Mexico begins and the US…Turtle Island…ends.

Jutting out into the wild, bluish grey waters, teeming with dolphins..seals..surfers..
LIFE is a wall…the end of a very long wall, a clumsy interruption to the beauty of open, turbulent, wild beauty.

The tinnish looking structure is a misplaced ornament of ignorance, a testament to human kind’s auto-immune disorder in the war against itself. It stands in odd, pathetic juxtaposition to the freedom and life of the ocean—or as the Yoruba call her, Yemiya.

The whole affair is a quirky reminder of the inability of humans to grasp the inordinate opportunities of life, on a planet like Earth.

BORDER ENCUENTRO REPORT BACK

IMG_6260.jpg

No están solas / juntos hacemos / la liberación 
You are not alone, together we will create liberation. 

The border wall runs like a scar through the Sonora desert. It cuts through the ancestral lands of the Tohono O’odam people, imposing settler colonialism on indigenous people and criminalizing people who cross seeking a better life. On November 18, 2018 I joined hundreds of activists to rally at the border wall in Nogales for the the annual School of the America’s Watch (SOA Watch) Border Encuentro.

Rallying at the border wall gave us a concrete and visceral understanding of the theme of this year’s SOA Watch Encuentro: Dismantle Border Imperialism: Fight, Create Power to the People. During the weekend-long gathering we focused on sharpening our understanding of the concept of border imperialism, which helps us see how borders function as instruments of empire and white supremacy.

In 2016, School of the Americas Watch convened the first Encuentro in to Nogales Arizona/Sonora to shine a light on the connections between US imperialism, the human rights crisis in the borderlands and the violence and injustice of US immigration policy.
