"It never seems like any of our political leaders are looking for solutions that don't include war. It seems like every problem that the U.S. faces where there's international conflict is either going to war or the threat of using force."

– Michael T. McPhearson, interim executive director with Veterans for Peace, on the new U.S.-led war in Iraq and Syria

Veterans Say New U.S.-Led War in Iraq and Syria Will Only Inflame Region's Ethnic Violence

MP3 Interview with Michael T. McPhearson, interim executive director with Veterans for Peace, conducted by Scott Harris

isis

President Obama’s speech to the nation on Sept. 10 laid out his plan to escalate United States military intervention in a new war to degrade and eventually destroy the Islamic State, or ISIS, which has taken control over large swaths of territory in both Syria and northern Iraq. The president stated that while this new campaign against ISIS will not include the deployment of U.S. ground forces into the conflict, it will enlist an international coalition to support Iraqi soldiers and perhaps troops from other allied nations. Obama said U.S. airstrikes that had already been targeting ISIS militants in Iraq will be expanded to include targets inside Syria.  Story continues

Great March for Climate Action Activists Demand the World Address the Climate Crisis

MP3 Interview with Lee Stewart, climate activist and Great March participant, conducted by Melinda Tuhus

climatemarch

Since March 1, about two dozen people have been walking across the country from Santa Monica, California to Washington, D.C., in what they’re calling the Great March for Climate Action, or the Climate March. The action was the brainchild of former Iowa legislator Ed Fallon, and took a full year of planning before marchers began their journey. The stated goal of the Great March is to change the hearts and minds of the American people, elected leaders and people across the world to act now to address the climate crisis. The March seeks to build the broadest possible public consensus and is focused strictly on the climate crisis.  Story continues

In a Surprising Victory, Criminal Charges from Direct Action Confronting Climate Change Are Dropped

MP3 Interview with Jay O'Hara, Quaker climate activist, conducted by Scott Harris

coal

On the morning of May 15, 2013 Ken Ward, a veteran environmental organizer and Boston carpenter, and Jay O’Hara, a Quaker activist from Cape Cod, set out on a 32-foot lobster boat with the intention of blocking the path of a giant freighter that was on its way to deliver 40,000 tons of coal to the Brayton Point power plant in Somerset, Massachusetts. The small boat, which flew an American flag along with a banner which read, ”#CoalIsStupid,” was moved into position and then dropped a 200-pound anchor, preventing the 689-foot ship “Energy Enterprise” from off-loading its cargo, one of the primary sources of climate change.  Story continues
