Resisting the War Industry on Campus (a War Industry Resisters Network webinar)

You’re invited to join the War Industry Resisters Network for a webinar on college divestment! Make sure to register here.

Tuesday August 2nd @ 8pm

Across the country students are coming together to oppose their universities’ connections to fossil fuel companies, corporations tied to incarceration, and the WAR INDUSTRY.

We’ll be talking to experts and activists to learn about making contact to these groups and working in solidarity.

Lillian Mauldin is a Founding Board Member of Women for Weapons Trade Transparency, a growing cohort of scholars, students and activists committed to producing quality research on international weapons sales and advocating for corporate and government divestment from war. Their first focus has been on divestment of war company holdings of the University of Texas/Texas A&M Investment Management Company (UTIMCO), the largest public endowment fund in the U.S. They have been mobilizing student governance bodies at the University of Texas, Austin (including the Graduate Student Assembly, Student Government, and the Senate of College Councils) to develop support for University of Texas system divestment from weapons manufacturers.

From our National Site

The national CodePink organization organizes for justice for Iraqis and to hold war criminals accountable. CodePink actively opposes the U.S. war in Afghanistan, torture, the detention center at Guantanamo, weaponized and spy drones, the prosecution of whistleblowers, U.S. support for the Israeli occupation of Palestine and repressive regimes.

Rooted in a network of local organizers, CodePink's tactics include satire, street theatre, creative visuals, civil resistance, and directly challenging powerful decision-makers in government and corporations. And, of course, wearing pink!
