War is not the answer

Friends, FYI:

Program on Militarism in Our Culture.

Can we talk about the fear so common in our country and the violence which often accompanies it? This question will be addressed at a community program on Thursday, April 30 at 7 p.m. held at one of the Gifford Medical Center conference rooms in Randolph.

Joseph Gainza of Marshfield, who led the American Friends Service Committee in Vermont for over 15 years and who founded Vermont Action for Peace, will give a presentation on one of the main ways of looking at other people, social problems, and even the planet itself, which has become a dominant pattern in the present culture of the United States today – a pattern which appears to have become so engrained in our American psyche that it is largely unnoticed, sometimes referred to as “militarism.”

Following the presentation, the evening will also provide an opportunity for people to come together to honestly discuss their views and questions.

Co-sponsors of the program are the Will Miller Green Mountain Veterans for Peace and the Randolph Peace and Justice Coalition.

You can listen to these WDGR shows any time over your computer or phone — “live streaming”.
