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.

Ceasefire in Libya, Humanitarian Intervention at Home

April 18, 2011

Brooklyn For Peace strongly opposed military intervention in Libya before the UN Security Council passed Resolution 1973 on March 17, 2011. Notwithstanding that we deplore the Qaddafi regime and its armed attacks on what was originally a peaceful opposition, we defend the opposition’s right to protest the current government and seek an alternative.
