Brooklyn Poll Says: “Bring Our War Dollars Home!”

May 25, 2013

The Peace And Economic Justice Committee of Brooklyn For Peace has been busy. Over the past few years we’ve been talking to our Brooklyn neighbors, about the lopsided spending priorities in Washington which favor war at the expense of human needs.

Using a unique gizmo called the BFP Penny Poll, (see photos below) we queried residents with this question: “If you were a member of Congress how would you apportion the Federal budget?” Continue reading

Stop-and-Frisk on Trial: Update!
Sign the petition!

Join Communities United for Police Reform in a petition campaign to end discriminatory policing practices in New York, and to build a lasting movement that promotes public safety and policing practices based on cooperation and respect, not discriminatory targeting and harassment.

Monday May 20 was the last day in court with closing arguments on both sides in the “Stop-and-Frisk” trial (Floyd et al. vs. City of New York). This landmark case, brought by the Center for Constitutional Rights (CCR) on behalf of millions of New Yorkers illegally stopped by the NYPD over the past seven years, is the first class-action lawsuit challenging the NYPD’s stop-and-frisk practice to be tried in federal court.

Feb 21, 2013

Some 70 people packed into the Commons, a meeting space on Atlantic Avenue in Brooklyn, to hear speakers Nick Mottern and Ann Wright, discuss drones – pilotless planes that are increasingly being used to wage war by the United States in many areas around the world. The forum was sponsored by Brooklyn For Peace and co-sponsored by Fort Greene Peace, the Green Party of Brooklyn, Peace Action Bay Ridge / Interfaith Peace Coalition and the NYC War Resisters League.

Tens of Thousands March For Climate Action Now!

They came by the tens of thousands – to the nation’s capitol. Their demand was “Save Our Planet.” It was a protest to demand immediate and urgent action to reverse the course of climate change; to change the path of dependency on fossil fuels which is slowly but surely leading to destruction and decline of what has become a fragile environment.

It was a bitterly cold and windy day but that didn’t stop people from marching around the White House to tell the President to be true to his words and reject the ominous and hazardous Keystone XL pipeline.
