Divest from the War Machine Summit
October 21, 2017 @ 9:00 am - October 22, 2017 @ 1:00 pm
On October 21-22, 2017 we will kick off of the Divest from the War Machine campaign! Hear from arms trade and foreign policy experts, voices from the military, activists working on nuclear disarmament, and divestment experts to learn how to best confront the war machine. Let’s use divestment to shine a light on the weapons producers that profit from deadly hyper-militarism at home and abroad.
Our powerful list of speakers will include IPS Miriam Pemberton, Research Fellow and director of the Peace Economy Transitions Project at the Institute for Policy Studies; Susi Snyder, producer of the Don’t Bank on the Bomb report targeting nuclear weapons producers; William Hartung, director of the Arms and Security Project at the Center for International Policy; Vijay Prashad, historian, journalist, and professor of international studies; and many more amazing individuals.
Sign up here to spread the word on Thunderclap!
This will alert your lists to the livestream of the summit.
Let’s get our schools, cities, churches, and more to divest from the companies that profit from unrestrained U.S. militarism. All of us are complicit unless we work to reel in the war machine. Divestment is a tool we can use to revoke our consent for a war machine forced upon us.
