Monthly Potluck and Discussion, 24 Nov 2017

Divest from the War Machine!

DivestWarMachine2017Join us for this month’s Alaska Peace Center potluck on Friday, 24 November 2017 at the APC office. The potluck will begin at 6 pm and the program will begin at 7 pm. The Alaska Peace Center is upstairs (Suite 203) in the College Mall building, 3535 College Road, above the Fuji Steakhouse. The stairs are at the west end of the building, adjacent to and sharing a common entrance with the Fuji Steakhouse.

The program will be to view and discuss the video of the Divest from the War Machine Summit, sponsored by Code Pink and held last month in Washington DC.  This short (35 minute), engaging video is an impressive presentation by Lawrence Wilkerson, retired United States Army Colonel and former chief of staff to United States Secretary of State Colin Powell. The summit examines the current state of the war machine (surprise- it’s thriving!) and explicates the skills and knowledge necessary to use divestment as a tool to shine a critical light on the weapons producers that supply and profit from deadly hyper-militarism both at home and abroad.

Who Lies?, Who Dies?, Who Pays?, Who Profits?

All are welcome!
