What I’m Seeing on Tour of U.S.

I’ve been touring the U.S. a bit, with much more to come. I’ve been around North Carolina, and D.C., and Baltimore, plus Washington State and Oregon. Speaking to college classes in particular, but also at book stores and peace-group-organized events, I’m finding a big new audience that hasn’t heard much before about what’s wrong with routinely waging war after war after war. I’m also finding that peace groups are largely over any depression resulting from placing false hopes in President Obama, and that they are relatively free of placing such hopes in anyone new. Instead, I’m finding a willingness to organize educational and nonviolent resistance work for peace. I’m collecting tons of signatures on World Beyond War’s pledge for peace, and meeting lots of people who want to volunteer. The Baltimore event on the anniversary of Freddie Gray’s killing was packed. The Seattle event on (traditional April 15th) tax day was huge, and we sold out of books. Here’s a nice video of the Seattle event including opening remarks and all the questions and answers:
