Join us tonight as our guests, John Penley (Organizer of the Bradley Manning Press Conference) and Faith Laugier supporters of the organization United National Antiwar Committee speak out.
The mission of the Anti-War Committee is to organize a broad-based peace and social justice movement which stands in solidarity with those communities, here and abroad, who are adversely affected by U.S. foreign policies. The organization's values are manifest in its core principles of self-determination for oppressed peoples and countries, and peace through justice.
The AWC works on many issues, with a focus on US foreign policy. Its members believe that the U.S. government has no right to intervene, militarily, economically or politically, in the affairs of independent nations. As of 2006, the organization's main focus is opposing the war in Iraq.
The Anti-War Committee calls for immediate withdrawal of all coalition troops from Iraq, and has collaborated with other groups to organize many protests and other activities toward that goal. They are also opposed to U.S. military aid to Israel and to Colombia.
The Anti-War Committee was the first organization to apply for permits and announce plans to protest at the 2008 Republican National Convention, which will be held in St. Paul, Minnesota.
