International Peace Movement Building Conference

April 2 @ 9:00 am - 5:00 pm

No to NATO

Midst more crises than we can count, and as we move into an increasingly confrontational and uncertain period in the wake of the Post-Cold War era, we are excited to announce an international peace movement building conference, April 2 in Washington, D.C.

The conference, featuring critical U.S., Russian, European and U.S. analysts and activists, will be held two days before NATO audaciously celebrates its 70th anniversary on the anniversary of Martin Luther King’s assassination and his “Beyond Vietnam” speech.

            Kevin Martin               Peace Action

            Anna Ochkina             Institute of Globalization and Social Movements (Moscow)

            David Swanson           World Beyond War

      Invitations pending to additional European and Global South movement leaders.

  • NATO: 70 Years of Militarism & A 21st Century Global Alliance
  • Driving Forces of the New Era of Confrontation: U.S., NATO & Russia – Imperial, Authoritarian & Economic
