Monday March 14th is the Chicago Chapter of World Can’t Wait Monthly Chapter Meeting. We have much to plan and you are invited to join us to brainstorm. The meeting is 7PM at St.Gertrude’s Church 6214 N. Glenwood, Chicago. Enter through the “Ministry Center” and ring the bell if the door is closed. That’s a few blocks west of the Granville stop on the Red line/easy parking.
There are two upcoming events that our chapter is helping to build for and everyone is welcome to help us build for them and be part of them
Sunday March 20th End Endless Wars 5 PM – 8 PM Ur-Eichen Gallery 2101 S. Halsted Chicago, IL
In the months leading up to the March 19, 2003 Shock and Awe bombing of Iraq, the world came closer than ever before to stopping a war before it started.
The New York Times referred to the massive anti-war movements that protested attacking Iraq as “the world’s only other superpower.”
In the intervening 13 years, the devastation begun under Bush has grown and spread under the Obama administration. The US has not been able to impose its will as it planned, and the US war OF terror continues. Facing what now appears to be endless war as the U.S. continues to invade and bomb other countries, activists opposed to U.S. military and economic warfare will gather to view film clips culled from “The Winter Soldier” project and the Iraq Veterans Against War NATO summit protest. How can we help mobilize grassroots resistance to U.S. militarism in the face of endless war?
Please help us spread the word about this gathering by inviting your friends and colleagues to join with us.
Free and open to all!
Co-sponsored by Chicago World Can’t Wait and Voices for Creative Nonviolence, Chicago Chapter of Veterans for Peace.
Let us know if your group would like to endorse!
