NO MORE WARS chants at the DNC
During last night's speeches at the Democratic Party's convention to nominate Hillary Clinton for president of the United States, former Secretary of War and CIA Director Leon Panetta tried to fearmonger by blaming Russia for supposedly interfering in a U.S. election (by allegedly revealing how the Democratic Party had in fact rigged its primary for Hillary Clinton). The delegates from Oregon began a chant of "No More War!" and held up signs including "End the drone wars!" California and other delegations joined in. Panetta had to stop speaking. The party bosses truned off the lights on the Oregon section, which then pulled out cell phones and turned on flashlight apps. Watch the video here:

   Neither big party convention in the United States has expressed any interest in ending war, outside of that wonderful chanting. We're going to be needing a powerful global peace movement to control U.S. warmongering. Help us build it by attending No War 2016:

  World Beyond War is working with our allies to plan similar events focused on alternatives to war the same week in other parts of the world. Please contact us to help plan such events. One is already planned for September 24 in Berlin, Germany, during which people will watch a livestream of the Washington, D.C., event. Also, in connection with this, U.S. whistleblowers will deliver to the German government a petition from, World Beyond War, and others urging the closure of Ramstein Airbase (yes, also being delivered to the U.S. government).
Please share this email widely.
