Stop War with North Korea: Take Action on Veterans/Armistice Day Nov. 11

The eleventh hour of the eleventh day of the eleventh month was the day that the Armistice between WWI Allies and Germany went into effect in 1918. World War I or the War to End All Wars was fought from July 28, 1914 to November 11, 1918 mobilizing 70 million military personnel.  Sixteen million died in this war (9 million combatants and 7 million civilians). As WW II and subsequent wars bear out, including the Endless Wars of today, wars are still with us, fueled by a global arms industry and competing international interests seeking resources and hegemony.*

United for Peace and Justice joins Veterans for Peace in calling on all peace-loving people to take a stand for peace this Armistice (aka Veterans Day), Saturday November 11. We call for nationally coordinated local actions to demand diplomacy not war with North Korea, and the abolition of nuclear weapons and war. Click here to find an event near you.

United for Peace and Justice is hosting an event map for use by the new Korea Collaboration, an informal network of groups around the country working together to avert war and promote peace and justice on the Korean peninsula. We are alsoencouraging local solidarity actions in support of peaceful protests in Japan (Nov. 5) and South Korea (Nov. 7), during 

Trump’s upcoming visit to Asia. Please use this link to post your group’s planned vigils, marches, teach-ins and other events calling for diplomacy not war in North Korea.
