> WHO ARE THE WARMAKERS?
>
> THEY are the government, corporate, and financial powers that wage  
> war, ravage the environment and the economy and trample on our  
> democratic rights and liberties.
> WHO ARE THE PEACEMAKERS?
>
> WE are the vast majority of humanity who want peace, a healthy  
> planet and a society that prioritizes human needs, democracy and  
> civil liberties for all.
>
> The Warmakers spend trillions of dollars yearly on endless wars in  
> pursuit of global domination and profit while murdering millions of  
> innocent people, installing corrupt and hated governments and  
> funding occupations that displace millions from their homelands -  
> trampling on the right of oppressed people to self-determination.
>
> THEY send our youth - victims of the economic draft - to fight over  
> the very fossil fuels whose unrestrained use threatens the future  
> of the planet while corrupt and virtually unregulated oil giants  
> dump billions of gallons of death into our rivers and oceans.
>
> THEY wage a fake "war on terrorism" at home - the new McCarthyism -  
> that promotes racism and Islamophobia aimed at destroying civil  
> liberties and democratic rights.
>
> THEY grant repeated and untold trillions in bailouts to banks,  
> corporations and financial institutions while breaking unions,  
> robbing pensions, destroying jobs, foreclosing homes, de-funding  
> education and vital social services and are once again threatening  
> Social Security and Medicare.
>
> THEY offer no solutions to the current crises other than more of  
> the same.
>
> THE PEACEMAKERS DEMAND a better world. Only a massive, united,  
> inclusive and independent movement has the power to bring it into  
> being.
>
> WE DEMAND Bring U.S. Troops, Mercenaries and War Contractors Home  
> Now: Iraq, Afghanistan and Pakistan! End the sanctions and stop the  
> threats of war against the people of Iran, North Korea and Yemen.  
> No to war and plunder of the people of Latin America and Africa!  
> End U.S. Aid to Israel! End U.S. Support to the Israeli Occupation  
> of Palestine and the Siege of Gaza!
>
> WE DEMAND trillions for jobs, education, social services, an end to  
> all foreclosures, quality single-payer healthcare for all, a  
> massive conversion to sustainable and planet-saving energy systems  
> and public transportation and reparations to the victims of U.S.  
> terror at home and abroad.
>
> WE DEMAND an end to FBI raids on antiwar, social justice, and  
> international solidarity activists, an end to the racist  
> persecution and prosecutions that ravage Muslim communities, an end  
> to police terror in Black and Latino communities, full rights and  
> legality for immigrants and an end to all efforts to repress and  
> punish Wikileaks and its contributors and founders.
>
> WE DEMAND the immediate end to torture, rendition, secret trials,  
> drone bombings and death squads.
> WE ARE DEDICATED  TO A WORLD OF PEACE AND JUSTICE.
