War & Its Intersections: Youth RIOT Conference

From the September 2013 PNL #827

by Youth RIOT

This conference will bring the campus and the community together for an afternoon of workshops on the topic of “War and Its Intersections.” Throughout the day, speakers at this youth-led conference will address both the root causes and the many effects of ongoing, global US warfare. Topics include but are not limited to:

  • How do racism, capitalism, colonialism, imperialism, and patriarchy contribute to war?
  • What is the relationship between US war and US industry, civil liberties, budget priorities, healthcare, education, and the environment?
  • By identifying the related struggles that contribute to war and the many bankrupting effects of war, how do we best build a movement to resist war?

Join us Sunday, September 29th from 1-5 pm
Syracuse University, exact location TBD.
Registration starts at noon. Free and open to the public.
