Black Alliance for Peace Second Anniverary

It isn't a coincidence that Black Alliance for Peace was founded on April 4, 2017. On April 4, 1967 Dr. Martin Luther King gave his famous speech, "Beyond Vietnam: A Time to Break the Silence," in which he condemned the Vietnam war. On April 4, 1968 he was assassinated because of his increasingly radical political stance.

When BAP and a coalition of peace groups learned that NATO planned to celebrate its 70th anniversary on April 4 we were inspired to protest that desecration and their wars of aggression around the world. A week of #No2NATO actions took place in Washington beginning on March 30th. You can see the BAP event on the video above.

No Compromise! No Retreat!
