The Minnesota Anti-War Committee began in December 1998 with 13 people who committed civil disobedience to protest the bombing of Iraq. We organize vigils, rallies, marches, educational forums, street theater, and civil disobedience actions to challenge the injustices of U.S. foreign policy. We believe in peace through justice, and we stand in solidarity with oppressed people here and abroad. As the U.S. war in Iraq continues, our most urgent campaign is to end the occupation and bring U.S. troops home now.
In addition to working for a just foreign policy, the Anti-War Committee is committed to justice in this country. We support the Welfare Rights Committee, the Minnesota Immigrant Rights Action Coalition and the Students for a Democratic Society at the University of Minnesota. We support justice for all, regardless of sexual orientation, and make Twin Cities GLBT Pride our biggest outreach event of the year.
