[Resist Militarism!/Peaceful Conflict Resolution]
Help stop the U.S. sale of $110 Billion arms to Saudi Arabia!
This arms deal is the largest arms deal in U.S. history, and it’s being offered to a country that’s been indiscriminately bombing Yemen with U.S. support for over two years, killing thousands of civilians in the process.
Thankfully, Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY) is planning to introduce a bill anytime now to block a key component of the arms deal; the portion containing munitions being used against civilians in Yemen. Thanks to the Arms Export Control Act, Paul can actually force a vote in the Senate, making this a crucial time for your Senators to hear from you. You can call Sen. Schumer (716-846-4111) and Sen. Gillibrand (716-854-9725), and/or write to your representatives at the following address:


Environmental Justice Meeting
Tonight, June 1, 6-8pm Come out to the Crane Library to discuss NAPL, results from the latest Bomb Train Watch, the Nuclear Waste being trucked over the Peace Bridge, Liquid Natural Gas, and plenty more environmental issues and actions! Crane Library, 633 Elmwood Ave, Buffalo.

#BuffaloMarchforTruth, June 2-4
Every day we learn more about the role Russian state-led hacking and information warfare played in the 2016 election, and there are crucial unanswered questions about the relationship between the Russian state and Donald Trump, his associates and his campaign. The legitimacy of the United States government hinges on the answers to these questions. If the President was elected even in part due to collusion with a foreign effort to interfere in our democratic process, then the will of the people has been subverted.
