The collapsing US military & economic empire is making Washington & NATO even more dangerous. US could not beat the Taliban but thinks it can take on China-Russia-Iran...a sign of psychopathology for sure.

Brunswick airshow protest huge success

Sixty people from all across Maine (New York & Massachusetts) gathered for two hours yesterday outside of the Blue (Hell's) Angels airshow in Brunswick.  More than 10,000 people passed by us on their way into the event during our protest which was highlighted by the wonderful presence of the IDEAL marching band from Portland. 

Many flyers, made by Veterans for Peace highlighting the connections between the Pentagon's huge carbon bootprint and climate crisis, were handed to passengers inside vehicles as they literally crawled past our protest line due to the huge traffic backup.

Great action! I am with you in spirit. Every step we take, every word we speak, shapes the future of humanity. We are in the pivot point now. Thank you peace activists who are bringing attention to how much pollution the military creates, and how militarized our country has become.

I sincerely believe we can pivot away from all of this. Each one of us has responsibility for what happens next.
