A group called the National Campaign for Nonviolent Resistance is organizing an anti-war rally at the Pentagon at noon today.
Dubbed “Operation DISARMageddon,” participants are planning to demonstrate against the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan, as well as the military’s use of fossil fuels. Organizers aren’t saying exactly where and how they’re planning to protest, except that it will be “nonviolent civil resistance” and it will happen “around noon.”
“The U.S. military is the entity most responsible for destabilizing our environment,” a call to action on the group’s web site says. “There are innumerable reasons for this, including these examples: the exorbitant use of fossil fuels, depleted uranium weapons, worldwide transport of weapons and personnel, unlimited air travel, engagement in war and the possession, upkeep and transport of nuclear weapons.”
The call to action continues: “U.S. drone bombs continue to kill innocent people in Afghanistan, Pakistan, and other places around the world. Our military spending is out of control while we have no money to meet basic human needs here in the U.S. Torture and illegal indefinite detentions continue in Guantanamo, Bagram, and other places around the world… In the spirit and discipline of Gandhi, Martin Luther King, Dorothy Day, and others, and for the sake of humanity, for the sake of peace and justice, and for the sake of Mother Earth we must act now.”
Other groups said to be participating in the protest include Code Pink, Veterans for Peace, Witness Against Torture and WarIsACrime.org.
