43] – MAPA [info@masspeaceaction.org] wants you to know about a webinar "U.S. Forever Wars" - Shining a Light on the War Profiteers on Wed., Oct. 18 at 8 PM ET.  US weapons manufacturers play a pivotal role in Forever Wars causing immense suffering and destruction across the globe. Using their enormous resources, they propel U.S. foreign and military policy to enrich themselves. This webinar will discuss the causes and consequences of these war profiteers and how a People's Tribunal is holding them accountable.  The Merchants of Death War Crimes Tribunal has charged four US weapons makers with War Crimes and Crimes against Humanity: Raytheon, Boeing, Lockheed Martin, and General Atomics. A People’s Tribunal emerges when the courts have been captured by the criminals and the government is no longer responsive to the citizenry.

This Tribunal has spent two years gathering documentary and video-recorded evidence which will be presented to a panel of judges beginning Sunday, November 12, 2023, at 7 PM EST. Witnesses include Cornel West, Col. Lawrence, Wilkerson, John Pilger, Richard Falk, William Astore, Christian Sorensen, Marie Dennis, Jeffrey Stern, Norman Solomon, Jeremy Kuzmarov, and others. Testimony will be streamed over consecutive weeks with a verdict, report, and calls to action provided at the conclusion. World BEYOND War will host the opening session on November 12th.
