We need to #ReclaimArmisticeDay.
Of particular importance is the need to share this with and invite other groups you wouldn’t normally associate with anti-war, anti-imperialist work, e.g., NAACP, 350.org, faith-based social justice groups. All of our issues are very much intertwined because they are all rooted in the same capitalist system.
This is one reason VFP has adopted the catch phrase, “Peace at home; peace abroad.” The militarism reflected in our foreign policy is closely associated with the militarist policing of our streets and a big reason why we can’t address climate change, to name just two of the intersections.

And here are the fliers, in case you feel motivated to print a few to take to meetings or wherever–There’s also a screen shot of the flier below:
We are co-hosting this with the local chapter of the Democratic Socialists of America (DSA) and they, particularly their Anti-Imperialism Working Group, helped plan and advertise the event.
Thanks and we’ll see you on Nov. 11.
