Three UNAC leaders were part of the 31 member anti-drone delegation to Pakistan this month, which was organized by Code Pink. We caravanned with Pakistani politician Imran Khan to the borders of Waziristan in the tribal areas to rally against drones, met with family members of drone victims and had meetings with supporters of Aafia Siddiqui, a Pakistani woman who is a political prisoner in the U.S. and with anti-war and progressive groups in Pakistan.

Thousands Protest NATO in Chicago



May 20th protest

Led by Iraq and Afghanistan war veterans, 15,000 people took to the streets of Chicago to protest on May 20, the opening day of the NATO summit. The demonstration was the largest antiwar demonstration in the U.S. in several years. The mass demonstration was the culmination of a week of activity against NATO and the G8 summits. Both summit meetings were originally planned for Chicago, but as protest organizing gained momentum, the G8 summit was moved to Camp David while the NATO summit was reduced to only two days from the week long summits originally planned.

Thousands March in New York and San Francisco to protest the wars
on Iraq and Afghanistan on April 9, 2011


A war movement is our goal. The new antiwar movement needs to oppose the US foreign wars but also defend the domestic victims of the “war on terror,” the Muslims who are being attacked. It must connect to dots between the money spent on war and the attacks on unions and cuts to education and needed programs. This is what these demonstration on April 9 and 10 did.

Thousands Demonstrate

in New York on April 9 and April 10 in San Francisco. These demonstrations represented an important step forward for UNAC and the antiwar movement as a whole. The antiwar movement has been in a lull since before the election of Barak Obama as many hoped the change in administration would mean an end to the wars. We are now in a rebuilding phase and UNAC has made it clear that the rebuilding of a new

 

Major gains were made in bringing together the antiwar movement and important section of the Muslim community who are ready to come out in opposition to war and to Islamophobia. The large number of Muslims who were present including the leadership of the Muslim community in New York said to the world, Muslims are for peace not terror and they are ready to join with non-Muslims and fight back against the Islamophobia that is growing in the US. Much of the Muslim participation was organized by the newly formed Muslim Peace Coalition, USA, which partnered with UNAC in building the demonstrations. In New York, the Muslim Leadership Council of Metropolitan New York and the Islamic Circles of North America (ICNA) co-sponsored the demonstration.

 

Other communities also join our rallies including significant South Asian, Latino, Pilipino and Black organizations. The rallies were diverse and youthful. This the new face of the antiwar movement.

 

April 9th saw 10,000 people march and rally in New York City and 3,000 in San Francisco.

 

Demonstration took place in other parts of the world in solidarity (see reports below).
