Truest statement of the week

The Democrats and the Republicans offer nothing but war and misery to all the world’s peoples, but we in the belly of the beast have a special responsibility to dismantle this juggernaut of planetary death. This year’s United National Anti-War Coalition conference, in Richmond, will have the largest Black presence in UNAC’s history: more than a third of the speakers will be Black, including several from Black Agenda Report and Ajamu Baraka, who is pulling together the Black Alliance for Peace. The Black Alliance for Peace is already part of the UNAC coalition. As Ajamu Baraka says: “The Democratic Party wants war with Russia, the Trump administration wants war with China, so it’s up to the people to demand and struggle for peace against both pro-imperialist parties.”
