What Has Your Anti-War Coalition Done For You Lately, Or in 2012?

United National Antiwar Coalition (UNAC) 2012 Activities

In March the Second Annual National Anti-War Conference - 600 people met to set the agenda for 2012.  
The primary objective: to keep the antiwar movement visible and in the streets in this never-ending and expanding wars, austerity and repression.
Program Of Action:  Making the connection between racist, imperialist wars abroad and the assault on working people, especially people of color, at home, while building coalitions founded on the principle that an injury to one is an injury to all.

Activities

Organized and helped to build a People's Summit and a mass demonstration of 15,000 people to protest NATO and the G-8 in Chicago in May.

Rallied for Peace at the Democratic and Republican Conventions and on the 11th Anniversary of the Afghan invasion.

Three of the Admin Committee Members travelled to Pakistan on the anti-drone tour organized by Code Pink and reported back at forums around the country

Organized participation in the rally in NY against NYPD's racist Stop And Frisk policy.

Organized demonstrations to demand non-intervention in Iran, Libya and Syria

Campaigned against civil liberties assault, including Indefinite Detention, targeted assassination and mass incarceration of Black and Latino youth.

There are dangerous times ahead as U.S. and Nato mass on the Turkish border, Iran continues to be a target of the U.S., NATO and Israel.  U.S. backs Israeli land theft and brutality of Palestinians and the U.S. sets its sights on China, North Korea in the Pacific.
