Fall Assembly Success, Video Links & Ways to Get More Involved

Thanks for the robust crowd at our 25th anniversary Fall Assembly! Attendees heard a great panel discussion facilitated by board member Jessica Williams. The panel highlighted work that WNPJ and member groups have done with anti-war/pro-peace, immigrant rights, mining, race-based native mascots, and racial justice work. All of the panelists have years of experience in their field: Carlos Miranda, Barb Munson, Pat Popple, Bonnie Block and Z! Haukeness.

Michigan mine threatens Menominee Nation’s sacred sites

By Al Gedicks

Imagine an open pit mine deeper than the height of Wisconsin’s tallest building, Milwaukee’s U.S. Bank tower. The depth of that pit, a mere 150 feet from the Menominee River (a major Lake Michigan tributary that forms the Wisconsin-Michigan border and flows into Green Bay) would exceed 700 feet. The pit would be 2,000 feet wide and 2,500 feet long. That would be the enormous size of the controversial open pit gold and zinc sulfide mine recently given preliminary approval by the Michigan Department of Environmental Quality (DEQ).

PETITION: Bring ALL Troops Home from Afghanistan!

On July 6, President Obama announced his intention to maintain 8,400 troops on the ground and in harms way in Afghanistan.

United for Peace and Justice opposes this continuation of ENDLESS WAR that has neither reduced incidences of terrorism throughout the world, nor made life safer for the people of Afghanistan or here at home.
