The anti-war movement rightfully focuses on the expansion of US military action around the world, but what connection does that have to everyday struggles in poor and Black communities in the U.S. like Baltimore? Why should Baltimoreans care about endless expanding war? Netfa Freeman and Vanessa Beck joined The Real News Network to discuss this and more.

Netfa is the Coordinating Committee member for the Black Alliance for Peace (BAP), he’s also an organizer with Pan-African Community Action (PCA). Vanessa is a member of the Black Alliance for Peace Research Committee and is also on the Steering Committee for Health Over Profit for Everyone (HOPE).
