What does a path forward to divest the United States from its war economy look like? Can we, as a nation, break our addiction to militarism? These are just some of the questions leading experts from around the country tackle in the Town Hall, a joint project by CODEPINK, Free Speech TV and Manhattan Neighborhood Network.

Khanna.jpgHosted by our own Ariel Gold, the CODEPINK: Town Hall on Militarism discusses the costs of militarism, weapons and war, and examines the effect and workings of the U.S. military-industrial complex, before looking at what work is taking place in the U.S. and around the world to end militarism and build a more just and peaceful world. The lively conversation features a message from Representative Ro Khanna panelists William Hartung, director of the Weapons and Securities Project at the Center for International Policy; Ciara Taylor, membership manager of The People’s Forum; Ann Wright, former U.S. Army Colonel and U.S. diplomat; and Angelo Pinto, senior attorney working with The Advancement Project’s Ending Schoolhouse to Jailhouse Track and Justice Project.
