Marching For Justice in NYC

Dec 14, 2014

Brooklyn For Peace and Fort Greene Peace, as well as friends and allies, gathered at the Barclay’s Arena yesterday at noon. From there, several dozen marched up Flatbush Avenue and down Fulton Street with signs that remembered the many neighbors who have been killed over the years in Brooklyn by police infected with the virus of racism. The marchers then boarded the subway, bound for Manhattan’s Washington Square to join the tens of thousands assembled there for the massive march that transformed the day into one for the history books.

Brooklyn For Peace sign; "Indict, Convict, Punish."

The march was a historic outpouring  — thousands of New Yorkers took to the streets demanding an end to racist police violence and seeking justice for those who died at the hands of officers who are never held accountable for their illegal actions.

During this holiday season, give gifts of Palestinian olive oil as a way to initiate conversation with friends and family about conditions in Palestine.

Support Palestinian farmers and families by purchasing fairly-traded olive oil from small farmer cooperatives in the West Bank.
Purchasing and giving Palestinian Olive Oil is a constructive and tangible way in which we can help to alleviate poverty and build peace.

Brooklyn For Peace Turns Thirty — And We Celebrate!
Gala Honors Noam Chomsky As PathMaker To Peace.

Nov 15, 2014

Oh what a night! An evening to come together, to celebrate, to find old friends, to eat and drink, to listen, to ask, to learn. An evening to remember!
See the Press Release

It was Brooklyn For Peace’s annual Pathmakers To Peace gala and there were two very good reasons for the gathering of several hundred people to be there –

First, they came to celebrate the thirtieth anniversary of the founding of Brooklyn For Peace, a most remarkable organization that has been been fighting the good fight for peace and justice for three decades and that is declaring its readiness to continue that struggle as long as the plagues of war, inequality, economic distress, environmental deterioration and social injustice require its attention.

Secondly, they came to witness our Pathmaker To Peace award, this year given to honor the life-long work of  Noam Chomsky, one of the brilliant minds of our times: linguistics professor, scientist, social critic and fierce advocate for peace and social justice.
