World Beyond War: "Seminario web su come far chiudere pacificamente una base militare!"

Risultati immagini per Seminario web su come far chiudere una base militare
Dear Friend, We're excited to announce 2 new upcoming webinars in our World BEYOND War webinar series!

On January 27 at 6:00pm Eastern, tune in to hear from former U.S. Navy Commander Leah Bolger, and activists Robert Rabin & Tom Hastings about the social + environmental impact of military bases, and the strategies + tactics that have been used to successfully shut them down. Register!

Leah's career included duty stations in Iceland, Bermuda, Japan, and Tunisia. She witnessed first-hand the impact of U.S. military bases abroad. Communities living near bases often experience high levels of rapes committed by foreign soldiers, violent crimes, loss of land or livelihood, and pollution and health hazards. She'll discuss the impact of bases - and the work that World BEYOND War does to advocate for base closure.

Tom & Robert will share lessons learned from 2 successful nonviolent grassroots campaigns to shut down military bases. Tom got involved in the campaign to shut down the Project ELF base in Wisconsin in 1978 and it took decades of nonviolent tactics to finally shut the base down in 2004. Robert was part of a broad-based community leadership effort to remove the U.S. Navy from Vieques, Puerto Rico. He was arrested multiple times and spent 6 months in U.S. prison for nonviolent civil disobedience. The campaign succeeded in 2003 when the U.S. Navy base in Vieques was finally shuttered.

RSVP to join the conversation with Leah, Tom, and Robert on January 27 to talk about how to shut down a military base!

Then, on February 19 at 4:00pm Eastern, we'll hear from Phill Gittins, PhD (WBW's Education Director) and Tony Jenkins, PhD (Education Director 2017-2019) about the "AGSS," the alternative global security system laid out in World BEYOND War's book. We'll explain the nuts and bolts of the AGSS: the frameworks, processes, tools, and institutions necessary for dismantling the war machine and replacing it with a peace system based on common security. Reserve your spot!

Both webinars will be livestreamed on World BEYOND War's Facebook page. If you're not on Facebook, you can join via your computer or telephone on Zoom. When you register for the webinar, you will receive the log-on details.

See you then!

For a world beyond war,
