New Yorkers To Albany –
Hands Off Our Drinking Water!

Jun 25, 2011

Hundreds of New Yorkers turned out for a spirited rally in Foley Square. They assembled to demand a permanent ban to the hazardous system of extracting deeply buried gas known as fracking. With repeated shouts of “no frackin’ way” they demanded that Governor Cuomo and the state legislature put people before the profits of the gas industry so that New York’s drinking water would be protected and remain pure and clean.

BFP at the Mermaid Parade, Coney Island

Brooklyn For Peace (Antimilitarism Committee) met the thousands of Coney Island Mermaid Parade spectators on Saturday, June 18 and demanded money for healthcare, jobs, schools, and housing – not WAR .

BFP distributed peace sign mardi gras beads to the crowd, along with flyers urging everyone to call our Senators to get the troops home and negotiate peace. The flyer also includes information about Opting Out under No Child Left Behind to stop our high schools from providing personal contact information about students to military recruiters. We were accompanied by music.

This fun, raucous event helps us spread our message to folks who wouldn’t otherwise ever attend a rally or demonstration against war.

Brooklyn For Peace
Shows Some Brooklyn Pride

Jun 11, 2011

BFP members set up a table at this year’s Brooklyn Pride Fair in Park Slope. Even though the weather was wet, thousands turned out for this annual celebration of Gay Pride. BFP was well received and thousands of Cost of War flyers were distributed. People stopped to chat and express their interest in the organization. And families brought children to our table to design their own peace button. A special Brooklyn For Peace flyer, celebrating Brooklyn Pride was distributed as well.

Many street fairs fill our Brooklyn avenues during the summer. You’re invited to help bring our message of peace and justice to street fair attendees. To help out just call (718) 624-5921 or write to bfp@brooklynpeace.org.

Why We Protested Henry Kissinger at 92nd St. Y

Henry Kissinger spoke at the 92nd Street Y in Manhattan on Tuesday, May 31. As National Security Adviser and Secretary of State, he was responsible for waging aggressive war, the mass bombing of civilians in Laos and Cambodia, and the overthrow of the democratically elected government of Allende in Chile, among other crimes. Outside the United States he is widely regarded as a “war criminal”. However, he has never been held accountable for his international crimes.

American culture is being poisoned by the failure to acknowledge and remember his war crimes and crimes against humanity and hold them to account. The 92nd St. Y properly insists on remembering and accounting for the crimes of Nazi Germany; it should not be forgetting and obliterating the crimes of US officials.

A Petition to the 92nd Street Y protesting Kissinger’s appearance is available for download here.

A flyer explaining the reason for the protest of Kissinger’s appearance is available for download here.
