Glen Anderson: Military "Solutions" Are Really the PROBLEM-
a workshop given at Fellowship of Reconciliation of Oregon and Washington'
annual conference at Seabeck, July 4th 2015.
Military ‘Solutions’ Are Really the PROBLEM.
Choose humane, sustainable ways for TRUE Security. In our daily lives, we know better than to think violence solves problems, but at the national level the U.S. government routinely threatens and uses military violence all over the world.
Militarism makes problems worse, so why does the government keep using militarism? Who benefits from this? We could achieve more profound, holistic “national security”
by renouncing violence and promoting peace and fairness. This highly participatory
workshop will encourage participants to share their information and insights.
Glen Anderson has worked consistently for many issues related to peace, social & economic justice, and nonviolence since the 1960s. He engages people to help them think creatively and organize at the grassroots.
MLK Day in Seattle! One of the 15 workshops, all of the plenaries, and the whole march.

Global Struggle for Food Sovereignty:
A Discussion with African Food Leaders & Farmers. October 12, 2014
African farmers are fighting for “food sovereignty,” the right of all people everywhere
to control their food systems. You are invited to hear first-hand from African food
leaders and farmers about how corporate “philanthropists” like the Bill and Melinda
Gates Foundation are working to transform African small-holder agriculture into
American-style industrial agri-business, with all its problems.
Join us for a panel discussion to learn about the struggle for global food sovereignty
and how we can work in solidarity to change these alarming trends.
