FEB 2, MON, 6:00–7:00 pm: Vigil outside the Metropolitan Correctional Center (MCC)
End abuses of human rights and civil liberties in “War on Terror” cases, often against Muslims

End abuses of human rights and civil liberties in “War on Terror” cases, often against Muslims.
“No Separate Justice!”.  The mission of the No Separate Justice campaign is to highlight the gross abuses of the “war on terror” which have taken place in prisons and courtrooms across the United States. The purpose of the monthly vigils is to keep these injustices before our eyes.

No Separate Justice! campaign is a coalition of community groups, academics, family members and human rights and civil liberties organizations including Amnesty International USA, the Center for Constitutional Rights, the Council On American-Islamic Relations (CAIR)-New York, and Educators for Civil Liberties. Brooklyn For Peace supports and endorses this campaign. “No Separate Justice” exposes and works to end a pattern of human rights and civil liberties abuses in “War on Terror” cases in the U.S. criminal justice system. Many of these cases are against Muslims or people associated with Muslim groups.

No Bombing! No War! National Call-in Day

Capitol Hill Switchboard: 877-429-0678 (toll-free number)  

President Obama has announced that he was sending another 1500 troops to Iraq, and would be calling on Congress to issue a new “authorization for the use of force” against ISIS in Iraq and Syria.
He is asking as well for $5.6 billion to pay for this new war.

The Brooklyn Representatives have repeatedly voted for antiwar positions, but strong pressure will be on them now to vote for this authorization.  Both they and our Senators need to hear from their constituents that this new war is another tragic mistake.

Call your Representative, as well as Senators Schumer and Gillibrand

No Weaponized and Surveillance Drones in NYC!!

Lets Say NO!! to Weaponized and Surveillance Drones in NYC.
E-mail grannypeace@gmail.com to receive information on how you can participate in campaign to get NYC Council to vote against bringing drones into NYC.

Check out KnowDrones and Granny Peace Brigade  for info on drones, especially in NYC.

In an article in the May 20 edition of the New York Daily News, reporter Tina Moore comments on William Bratton’s support for the concept of drones in the following way: “Police Commissioner Bill Bratton said the unmanned machines equipped with cameras and tiny microphones could help spy on crime hotspots–like housing projects, where shootings are up about 32% this year.”

Although it’s unlikely that Bratton was naive enough to utter those exact words, it is probable that spying on the citizenry of New York is indeed what he intends to do. His exact words were, “Myself, I’m supportive of the concept of drones, not only for police but for public safety in general . . . It’s something that we actively keep looking at and stay aware of.”

With this warning ringing in our ears, we’re heading for 125th Street to alert the citizenry that drones will be coming–if not tomorrow, certainly within a few years.

No More Hiroshimas! No More Nagasakis! No More Fukushimas!

Did you know??
In March 2013, Norway hosted a conference in Oslo on the Humanitarian Impacts of Nuclear Weapons, with 127 governments in attendance. The US boycotted this conference! A follow-on conference is scheduled in Mexico in early 2014. The U.S. has not committed to attending.

In May 2013, a new United Nations working group began meeting in Geneva “to develop proposals to take forward multilateral nuclear disarmament negotiations for the achievement and maintenance of a world without nuclear weapons.”  The first ever UN High-Level Meeting on Nuclear Disarmament will take place on September 26, 2013,  in New York.  But, the US is refusing to participate in the UN Disarmament Working Group, and has been silent on the September meeting.
