NAC is the major national antiwar
coalition in the U.S. today. The existence of a United National Antiwar
Coalition is vital and we need your financial support to continue our work and
With U.S. wars today accelerating
and expanding globally in various forms – from drone attacks on Yemen and
Pakistan, never-ending wars in Iraq and Afghanistan, support to neo-fascists in
Ukraine, and proliferating Africom forces to threats of war for regime change
in Syria – we have an obligation to do whatever is possible to educate the
public and to take action to stop the carnage.
The wars abroad are connected to
global warming with most wars fought over energy resources with the U.S. war
machine as the largest polluter.
At home, we see hugely growing
income inequality, a militarized and racist police force, mass incarceration of
Blacks and Latinos, and a massive police state apparatus that includes global
surveillance and laws to quell dissent.
In spite of the trillions spent by
the U.S. corporate war government and its controlled media propaganda machine
to keep us in check, the people are fighting back. We’ve been inspired
and strengthened by the hundreds of thousands of new activists taking to the
streets of this country to stop police brutality, to build Occupy encampments,
to fight for decent wages, to demand full rights for immigrants, to win
marriage equality, to end global warming, to demonstrate solidarity with the
besieged people of Gaza, and to protest unending U.S. wars.
UNAC has played an active, often
leadership role, in all of the antiwar and social justice movements of our
time. While most activists are focused on their particular issues, the
most vital role we can play is to connect the issues to their source. All
of the injustices and crimes we protest, stem from the imperialist insatiable
drive for expanding profit and control – and the U.S. is the largest
imperialist power militarily and economically. When there should be
plenty for all, only the obscenely wealthy benefit while the rest of the 99%
struggle just to survive.

UNAC has a history of bringing
hundreds of activists together at large national conferences to learn about the
issues of the day, to discuss the way forward and to vote on an Action Program
for the coming period.
The UNAC conference next May will
bring activists from all the movements in motion to cross-fertilize these
struggles. We are particularly dedicated to bringing young activists
together to support and learn from each other. For this, we need your
help to offer subsidies to leaders from Ferguson, from the border wars in the
southwest, from the Native Americans who are fighting against the pipelines
ruining their lands, from the Students for Justice in Palestine, and many
