End corporate rule to end wars and occupations

Thursday, April 4 | 5pm PT, 8pm ET

Register below for the virtual program

Endless US wars and occupations are driven by the political and economic power of US corporations. Hundreds of US military bases around the world provide those corporations “security” to access foreign markets, cheap labor and raw materials. Resisting one war, occupation, weapon system or sweatshop article of clothing at a time will never result in peace, justice and a livable world. 

We must fight individual corporate evils AND end corporate rule in all its forms. 

The good news is, we can do both!  Join us April 4, to see how.
