Austin IndyMedia 2012 Year in Review - Fighting for Peace, Justice & Dignity

Austin Alliance for Peace Rally - 4/14/2012

 The Austin Alliance For Peace (AA4P) is a trans-partisan organization dedicated to promoting peaceful solutions in an era where violence and threats are too often employed. The First Annual Austin Alliance for Peace 'Peace Rally" was held on Saturday, April 14 from noon-2 PM on the South Steps of Texas State Capitol. The purpose of the event was to reinvigorate the anti-war sentiment in the great State of Texas with the Peace Rally the day before National Tax Day. We are pleased that renowned peace activist, Dr. Dahlia Wasfi and the host of anti-war radio, Scott Horton were headliners for this event.  Other speakers from the Austin area spoke on how the cost of war has deeply effected our local community through such issues as police brutality, regional fusion centers, implementation of an American urban warfare state in major cities across the U.S. (including Austin) with the implementation of Urban Shield programs, and how local politicians accept "federal money" to further the growth of the police state in local communities. AA4P objectives are: 1) To educate the public on violations of peace in any form, 2) To mobilize the citizens of the state of Texas to bring peace wherever it is absent, 3) To pursue the redress of grievances in alignment with the tradition of non-violent resistance. 4) To build a constituency whose main priority is to practice diplomacy and to always strive to resolve problems without the use of violence,

El Salvador Delegation Report Back: CIPSES "Living the Change" 2011

 

Learn about the most recent solidarity delegation from the U.S. to El Salvador! In June of 2011, Austin independent filmmaker and journalist Matt Gossage went to El Salvador as a delegate of CISPES, Committee In Solidarity with the People of El Salvador.

Matt shared food, pictures, sounds and stories of the delegation and will report on the exciting political and social developments in El Salvador. CISPES' "Living the Change" delegation brought a diverse group of U.S. citizens to El Salvador to learn and experience the work of the grassroots social movements that are fighting for justice and human rights.

From funding and actively supporting the civil war from 1981 to 1992 and currently imposing its economic model on El Salvador, the United States has a close relationship and responsibility to the people there and their struggle. From environmental destruction, disastrous neo-liberal economic policies, unsustainable agriculture, lack of health care, a draconian criminal justice system and the attack of community media; the resistance in El Salvador is fighting the same systems as the resistance here in the United States.

This report-back focused not on the problems in El Salvador, but the solutions organized movements there are using to bring democracy and justice to their country. The discussion covered some of the groups and their work and how we in the U.S. can learn from the organizing being done there. After the dinner and presentation, information was shared on how we can stay involved, informed, support and stand in solidarity with El Salvador as activists in both our countries build a healthier and more just world.
