April 4, 2019 is the 51st anniversary of the assassination of Martin Luther King Jr. Disrespectfully ignoring Dr. King’s lifelong dedication to peace, military leaders of the North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO), the expanded military arm of the United Stats that has been resposible for many wars and destruction around the world, have chosen to celebrate NATO’s 70th anniversary by holding its annual summit meeting in Washington, DC on that very day. This is not only an insult to Dr. King but NATO’s message that Black lives and indeed the lives of the vast majority, really do not matter.
We are calling for a peaceful mass mobilization against this year’s NATO Summit in Washington, DC, on Saturday, March 30. Additional actions will take place at the opening of the NATO meeting on April 4.
We invite you to add your and/or your organization’s name to the list of supporters of the National Mobilization Against NATO, War and Racism mass actions in Washington, DC.
We would also appreciate your generous donation to the No2NATO2019 Mobilization.
Bands, Speakers, Poets, DJs, HIP-HOP, tabling and refreshments. Call or email@example.com. If you want to perform contact me. Sponsored in part by Poor Peoples Economic Human Rights Campaign, Refuge Ministries, Revolutionare Caucus Tampa Bay, Revolutionary Road Radio show, Squatter Productions, and others.
The North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO) is coming to Washington, D.C., on April 4. We’re organizing a peace festival to unwelcome them.
