A Conference to Challenge the Wars of the 1% Against the 99% Abroad and at Home.

March 23-25, 2012 – Stamford Hilton Hotel, CT

Next spring, international military, financial, and political leaders who serve the 1% at home and abroad will meet in Chicago to discuss their economic and military strategies for the planet for the coming period.

At the invitation of the White House, the 28-nation US-commanded and largely US-financed North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO) and the G-8 world economic powers are meeting in Chicago, May 15-22, 2012.

The NATO generals and G8 heads of state and finance ministers are the team that is imposing austerity on the working people of the world in the interest of expanding profits.  In many places, economic “reform” is enforced at the point of a gun – by drones, armies, and police.

In May, those of us struggling against the tyranny of the banks and the corporate elite, those of us fighting against job loss, foreclosure, cuts to education, and the restriction of our democratic rights, will march in Chicago. The authorities intend to deny us our constitutional rights to peacefully and legally protest.  We must challenge them and bring thousands to Chicago to stand in solidarity with all those fighting US-backed austerity and war around the globe.

To plan these actions and further actions against the program of endless war that necessarily accompanies the austerity drives of the global elite, we will meet in a large national conference March 23-25 in Stamford CT. This conference will bring together activists from the occupy movements, the antiwar movement, and all the constituencies representing the 99% engaged in struggle for economic equality. We will demand that Washington Bring Our War Dollars Home Now! and use these trillions immediately for human needs.

The conference program will feature movement leaders, educators, grassroots activists, 40 workshops, and discussion/voting sessions on an action program.
