We met 75 years from the day that Hitler’s Nazi Germany occupied Czechoslovakia. The carte blanche from the “liberal” powers had already been issued through the shameful Munich dictate. Occupied Paris – and London massacred by air raids – followed only in the subsequent year.
Once again the U.S. peace movement is silent in the face of another coup d’état that is being promoted as a democratic uprising. Troops are moving, war threats are being thrown.
Peace Organizations must urgently act to illuminate the travesty of justice that is taking place. We spoke together for negotiations with Iran. We must raise our voices now.
