Call to Action for September 2016
In the name of all humanity we say:
Yes to Unity, Solidarity, Justice and Peace!
NO to hate and fear mongering.
The corporate media and some politicians on both sides of the aisle believe their interests can be advanced by scapegoating the poor and those oppressed by racism, anti-Muslim and anti-immigrant prejudice, mass deportations, and the exclusion of refugees fleeing endless U.S.-supported wars abroad.
Hate, fear, war-mongering and violence of many kinds are increasingly publicly promoted for heinous ends, and especially to divide the victims of the ever-deepening social cutbacks government austerity policies inflict.
We say no to Islamophobia and all forms of religious prejudice. We denounce the endless racist police murders of unarmed members of the nation’s Black and poor communities. We reject militarily-sealed borders and mass deportations of Latino people.
We strive for the unity and solidarity of all who cherish human and democratic rights.
We will join together in a week of coordinated activities across the country, September 9-16 to to honor the victims of 9/11 and all the victims of violence and injustice in the US and around the world. We see the value in every individual life and we stand in solidarity with all those who have lost loved ones to terrorism, racism, and abuse of power. Now is the time to organize in your community, school or place of worship to stand up for unity, solidarity, justice, and the common good.
Stand with us against hate and violence in all their manifestations. Stand up for a future of cooperation, sharing, sustainability and the nonviolent resolution of conflict.
