save the date!
On April 4 2019, Trump will gather the leaders of the NATO countries to Washington, DC to “celebrate” the 70th anniversary of NATO. April 4 is also the date of the assassination of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., exactly one year after his famous antiwar speech at Riverside Church in New York City. UNAC is playing a central role in organizing protests around that date, as we did the last time that NATO came to the U.S. in Chicago, 2012. The fact that they chose April 4th for this meeting gives us the opportunity to organize with civil rights and Black liberation organizations to further the building of an all-inclusive antiwar movement that we know is necessary. We will be organizing a Mass Anti-NATO March and Rally in Washington, DC on March 30, the weekend prior to the April 4th NATO meeting, and also supporting actions being organized by the Black Alliance for peace and others leading up to April 4.
