Stand in Solidarity with the People of Ferguson

We share this important message from United for Peace & Justice with which we are in full accord. USLAW is affiliated with UFPJ.

STAND IN SOLIDARITY WITH THE PEOPLE OF FERGUSON

“The senseless killing of Mike Brown is a movement moment for racial justice and an opportunity to advance economic and social justice for all. We in the peace movement have a special role to play in this struggle because our work is global. Our work is for peace at home and peace abroad. We know that war and militarism has no borders. If we are to have peace abroad we must confront injustice, violence and the militarization of police in our own communities. We must build peace at home.

The struggle against violence and militarism in Ferguson continues, as it does around the world. It is our charge as peacemakers and justice-seekers to stand with the people of Ferguson and all those who are victims of state violence as we make clear the connections between the war at home and the wars abroad, such as the renewed U.S. bombing of Iraq and Syria.”

Michael McPhearson, Veterans for Peace Interim Executive Director and former UFPJ National Coordinator
