Brooklynites To Congress: We don’t want another war!

October 28, 2012

Members of Brooklyn For Peace’s Peace And Economic Justice Committee (PEJ) have been busy the past few weekends. Concerned that some in Congress are beating the drums of war once again by pushing for military action against Iran, they have been out on street corners asking residents to send postcards to Congress demanding that their representatives say “NO to another war!”

At times the BFP table was swarmed with people wanting to send postcards
to their Congressional Representative.

Say NO! to Sanctions Against Iran!
Sanctions are NOT AN ALTERNATIVE to War!
Sanctions Are War by Other Means!

On Sunday, July 1, 2012 the European Union, backed by the United States, launched a potentially crippling oil embargo against the Iranian people. This follows escalating U.S. sanctions that as of June 28 further punish any business with Iran’s Central Bank and further decimate the country’s capacity to make financial transactions. The Iranian people are already suffering and resisting the grave impact of sanctions and the Iranian government’s economic policies as they face rising prices in food, medicine, and other basic needs.

Activists and Faith Leaders Gather to Bear Witness Against Fracking

Nov 15, 2012

On Thursday, November 15, a group of about 25 people huddled in the cold at Grand Army Plaza with candles and signs. We were one of a number of vigils taking place all over the state – faith leaders and witnesses in the fight to stop fracking in New York State. Muslim, Christian, and Jewish faith leaders spoke out about the need to succor the earth, to stand strong against this assault on the planet, and not be swayed by the false rhetoric of “energy independence.” The only path to true energy independence is through energy sustainability: from renewable solar, wind, and water.

Brooklyn Asks:
“Where Are The Jobs And Affordable Homes?”

September 29, 2012

As part of a series of protests (AY Crime Scene) marking the opening of the Barclay’s stadium, members and supporters of FUREE marched from development site to development site. At each location, speakers demanded to know where the jobs were and where the affordable homes were – these were promised by the developers.

Our photos and a video from this uplifting march can be found here.

Determination - because the struggle continues.
