Since its founding, the U.S.-led NATO has been the world’s deadliest military alliance. There deployments has caused untold suffering and devastation throughout Northern Africa, the Middle East and beyond. Hundreds of thousands have died in U.S./NATO wars in Iraq, Libya, Somalia and Yugoslavia. As a result, millions of refugees are now risking their lives trying to escape the carnage that came to their homelands. Workers in the 29 NATO member-countries are told they must abandon hard-won social programs in order to meet U.S. demands for even more military spending.
Every year NATO has held its summits, people around the world have organized massive protests against it. Chicago (2012), Wales (2014), Warsaw (2016), Brussels (2017 & 2018). 2019 will be no exception.
Get In The Streets
We are calling for a peaceful mass mobilization against this year’s NATO Summit in Washington, D.C., on Saturday, March 30. Additional actions will take place at the opening of the NATO meeting on April 4.
We ask you to make every effort to join with us in Washington DC. You can organize a rally or demonstration in your area. We need to show in the strongest possible way, our opposition to NATO’s destructive wars. We must stand against its racist military policies around the world.
There will be actions in D.C. from March 30 through April 4, 2019 to protest the event organized by NATO to celebrate their 70th anniversary. An annual summit meeting will take place in Washington, D.C. on April 4.
