Barely 100 days into the Trump presidency, the US government has escalated bombings, airstrikes and troop deployments abroad, and intensified repression at home. His slogan, “America First” is a desperate attempt to maintain US global hegemony in a crisis-laden multipolar world.
We need to reverse the rising tide of war by building a global movement against militarism, injustice and repression.
Come to the “Solidarity and Fightback: Building Resistance to US-led War, Militarism and Neofascism”, a gathering of anti-war and social justice activists, organizations, networks and movements from different countries who oppose wars, militarism, repression and foreign intervention by the U.S. and other imperialist powers, and assert or support the right of peoples to self-determination, justice, liberation and peace. This will be held on August 5 – 7, 2017 at the University of Toronto, Canada.
