#CutThePentagon: Our Biggest Campaign Ever!
In the past year, thanks to your support, we’ve been amping up our work to expose the lies, propaganda and warmongers who drive us to war—so we can stop new ones and focus on building a peace economy instead. To do exactly that, we launched our largest campaign yet: #CutThePentagon: For People, Planet, Peace and a Future. We’ve already built a substantial coalition and in 2022, with your help, we can expand the tent and our capacity to be in the streets, demanding that we fund human lives, not F-35s.
Preventing Cold War Against China from Turning Hot
In 2021, we were heartbroken to see Biden’s “pivot to Asia” continue Trump’s cold war against China — one that could easily turn hot. That’s why we revved up our China is Not Our Enemy campaign. Thank you for not being bystanders here: We are delighted that so many of you attended our in-depth webinars with prominent scholars, journalists, researchers and organizers. When PBS censored a documentary about China’s creative efforts at poverty alleviation, thousands of you showed your outrage, signing our petition and following us as we took it to the doorstep of PBS. We believe wars are not inevitable, but they take a lot of dedicated people to stop them. We invite you to continue helping us do exactly that: educate more people that China is Not Our Enemy and that we can—and must—Divest from the War Machine.
Divesting from the War Machine with Wins!
In the past year, our supporters like you got all kinds of investors to divest from weapons manufacturers—from the city of Burlington to Congressman Ro Khanna’s wife! Now, we need you to join our efforts to expose BlackRock, the world’s largest financier of weapons. We’re seeing the power of collective action again and again — thank you for being the very heart of it!
#NoSanctions: Solidarity with Afghanistan and Iran
Heart, support and unshakeable empathy is what we need to show the people of Afghanistan now. Yes, it was good that U.S. troops left, but we can’t leave the people with crippling sanctions and billions of their dollars frozen in U.S. banks. There is now a raging humanitarian crisis and we need you to join us as we partner with Afghan women to demand that Biden and the World Bank #UnfreezeAfghanistan and #PayAfghanTeachers. Together, we can replace militarism with solidarity. We must do the same with the people of Iran. While Biden’s promise to get us back into the Iran Nuclear Deal remains unfulfilled, U.S. sanctions on Iran continue to hurt the Iranian people in ways that are as brutal as a traditional war. To loudly say NO TO SANCTIONS, we need every voice possible — we need YOUR voice for our Peace with Iran campaign in 2022!
Standing Against Israeli Apartheid
We can’t talk about raising our voices and not talk about Palestine. Israel may have a new government, but its apartheid regime remains solidly in place. Ethnic cleansing, state-sanctioned violence and daily humiliation continues in Palestine. We know it’s only a matter of time until Israel bombs Gaza again. Yet we won’t be waiting for the bombs to drop to campaign for liberation and dignity for Palestinians. You’ve joined us before, and we’ll count on you in 2022. We also need you onboard as we take on a massive task: to stop weapons sales to Saudi Arabia and other repressive countries, such as Israel, Egypt and the Philippines. We invite you to support our Call to Disarm campaign which, like our Cut the Pentagon work, exposes the war profiteers and tries to weed out U.S. militarism from its roots. No more school children incinerated by our bombs! No more peaceful protesters crushed by bullets!
Being a Good Neighbor to Latin America
Uprooting militarism and becoming good neighbors is what our Latin America campaign is all about. After all, we can’t stay silent as the U.S. tries to overthrow governments, impose sanctions and interfere throughout the region. In 2021, we denounced deadly sanctions, proclaiming #LetVenezuelaLive and #LetCubaLive! Thanks to your support, we sent six million syringes to Cuba for their COVID-19 vaccination campaign and a planeload of food! Next year, we need your help to go after a huge target: the Organization of American States, which played a key role in the 2019 coup in Bolivia. Let’s stand with Latin America as it replaces old imperialist institutions with ones that truly serve the people.
Connecting the Dots Between Military Pollution, Climate Change, Imperialism and More!
And there’s more! We’re working against the Enbridge Line 3 pipeline and zigzagging through the streets from Manhattan to Glasgow, Scotland, for COP26 with our War is Not Green message. Our weekly radio show has expanded to include special podcast episodes and we’re continuing to advocate for whistleblowers like Daniel Hale and Julian Assange. We’re growing a Youth Peace Collective, re-energizing our local chapters, and hosting a popular “actionar” called CODEPINK Congress, to help you take action on legislation to halt the U.S. war machine. We won’t stop until the Pentagon is cut and healthcare, education, and housing are funded instead!
