Brooklyn For Peace’s Statement on Bolivia

We demand that the U.S. cease all forms of intervention in the internal affairs of the sovereign nation of Bolivia under the U.N. Charter, international law and resolutions and the OAS Charter. We call for a public condemnation of the violence committed by agents of the self-proclaimed Bolivian government, a restoration of the Bolivian Constitution and the human rights of all Bolivians which it guarantees, and free and fair elections that include all political parties.

Board of Directors, Brooklyn For Peace, December 23, 2019

What Can We Do?

  • Join protests condemning the coup
  • Call for an end to the violence against the Indigenous people of Bolivia
  • Call for the U.S. government to cease recognition of and support for the coup government
  • Pressure the media to document the human rights abuses
  • Sign the Code Pink petition calling for UN High Commissioner Michelle Bachelet to visit Bolivia
  • Share independent media and people’s videos documenting what is happening on social media

What Happened in Bolivia? This article was researched and written by Ann Fawcett Ambia, BFP Board Member. On her third trip to Bolivia in 2014 she monitored the national elections with the National Lawyers Guild
as part of an international delegation of trained election observers.


Brooklyn For Peace’s Statement on the Impeachment of President Donald J. Trump

Brooklyn for Peace strongly endorses the effort to impeach and remove President Donald J. Trump from office. While we deplore the attempted bribery of a foreign government to obtain help for his re-election and his obstruction of the Congressional investigation into this behavior, we also believe his crimes –both domestic and international – go far beyond those specified in the Judiciary Committee’s articles. From personal corruption, to the gross violation of human rights at the border, to the endangerment of the planet, to the withdrawal from essential international treaties, to a blatant disregard for international law, President Trump is a danger to the United States and to other countries around the world. We recognize that many of these challenges will outlast the Trump Presidency, but his removal from office has become an urgent necessity.

Did you miss this Op-Ed by BFP’s Co-Chair Carolyn “Rusti” Eisenberg?

Maybe you missed it, since it appeared only on-line (Thurs Dec 5) and not in the print edition. Take the time to read it. Then contact your congressperson to insist that the articles of impeachment include the President’s abuse of power in using military actions which have not been authorized by Congress. 

Action Alert: Save TPS for Yemen!

The Trump administration is deciding whether to allow Yemenis — fleeing one of the most brutal humanitarian crises in the world — to remain in the United States. With the U.S. fueling the devastating Saudi- and UAE-led coalition war in Yemen, we MUST have a pathway for Yemenis seeking refuge here. Demand Representative Nydia M. Velázquez and Senators Charles E. Schumer and Kirsten E. Gillibrand do everything they can to save TPS for Yemen NOW! Add your name to Save TPS for Yemen
