Antiwar Movement Rallies on September 22 to Highlight U.S. Lawlessness and U.S. War Machine Around the World
The People’s Mobilization To End Wars And Save The Planet

September 22, 2019, New York City

New York City – The People’s Mobilization to Stop the U.S. War Machine and Save the Planet (People’s Mobe) is being held in New York City during the UN General Assembly from September 20 to 23. (See Schedule of Events, below.) The Rally and March will begin at the Northwest corner of Herald Square near 34th St.and 6th Ave., at 2:00 pm. The rally features Roger Waters, members of the Embassy Protection Collective, Chairman Omali Yeshitela, music by Ben Grosscup plus many solidarity, climate crisis, and resistance groups. More special guests to be announced.

After the rally, the People’s Mobe will march to the United Nations to demand the United States be held accountable for its regular manipulation and violations of international law. As a permanent member of the UN Security Council and world power, the United States has been able to block efforts to stop its crimes.

The People’s Mobe connects the issues of militarism, climate crisis, racism, and decolonization. The events are being held during the UN General Assembly because to achieve economic, racial and environmental justice as well as peace requires the United States to stop its widespread violations of international law.

“It is time to stop the US War Machine,” said Margaret Flowers of the Venezuelan Embassy Protection Collective. “We demand the US be held accountable for its destructive acts. The US government must begin to obey the UN Charter by stopping regime change operations, ending the use of unilateral coercive measures, often called sanctions, and ceasing military attacks. At a time when all of the world leaders gather, we will say we’ve had enough of the US War Machine.

“We demand the US sign the nuclear weapons ban treaty, rejoin the Iran nuclear agreement and Paris climate treaty, disband NATO and close bases and outposts around the world,” said Ajamu Baraka, member of the Executive Committee of the US Peace Council. “Lastly, we demand an immediate transition to a peace economy that uses our resources to meet human needs and protect the planet.”
