Apr 26, 2015

They filled Union Square North by the thousands – a beautiful sight! With banners, posters, balloons and colorful costumes, thousands assembled to listen to speakers and prepare to march to the United Nations. They came to make demands on the world’s leaders who would be assembling this month in NY at the UN headquarters to discuss and debate the 1970 Nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty (NPT). The demand would be simple: Make the treaty work! Forty-five years after its signing, proliferation of these earth-killing weapons is a tragic fact of 21st century life and the threat of nuclear war continues to hang heavily over the fate of humankind.

A table had been set up promoting the April 26th march from Union Square to the United Nations.

Apr 14, 2015

Some seventy residents filed into the Brooklyn Friends meeting hall on Schermerhorn Street last night to hear speakers discuss the twin specters of the age we live in: nuclear weapons and their proliferation and nuclear energy and the threat it poses as solutions to climate change are sought.

BFP Urges Congress to Reject Authorization for the Use of Military Force (AUMF)

Noting with alarm and dismay President Obama’s request for legislation Authorizing for the Use of Military Force (AUMF) to legitimize the use of military force in the Middle East, Brooklyn For Peace calls on the elected officials who represent us in Wasnington to reject this request.

In the past year, we have held four public forums with speakers who are experts on foreign policy and issues of the Middle East. One event specifically addressed the question of how the U.S. should respond to ISIS. Based on these events and ongoing reading and discussion, we feel that the AUMF will perpetuate a militarized foreign policy which has produced disastrous results during the fourteen years of the War on Terror, and it will make the US less safe.

Check out NSA Listening Party! – Arts & Culture’s First CD!

That’s right! Arts & Culture recently release a compilation CD! NSA Listening Party! An art in the community project presented by Charity Case and Brooklyn For Peace.

1.nsa_COVER_440 This album was inspired by the Edward Snowden leaks. It features 14 wonderful artists, 12 who are based right here in Brooklyn.

The concept of the CD is around the idea that the NSA was or at least could be listening, so why not give them something to listen to. Let’s make it a party! Are they monitoring…our conversations, communications, locations, gyrations and good vibrations? Then turn up the monitor!!!!!

 

To get a copy, become a member of Brooklyn For Peace at the $30 level!
