Armistice Day Remembrance this Saturday Nov 11th

Carolina Peace is calling for church bells and alarms to ring on the “Eleventh Hour of the Eleventh Day of the Eleventh Month” to remind all to observe two minutes of silence in Armistice Day remembrance, renewing an old tradition to recognize the human cost of war and solemnly reflect on the need for peace.

Armistice Day Remembrance
SATURDAY Nov 11th 11:00AM       Facebook Event
This year marks the centennial of US entry into WWI, a war that killed nearly 20 million,  including 116,516 American servicemen, among them over 2,000 from South Carolina and over 3000 from Georgia.  On the “Eleventh Hour of the Eleventh Day of the Eleventh Month” the guns finally fell silent when the armistice negotiated to end the war began Nov 11th, 1918 at 11am.  Armistice Day was established to honor their sacrifice to win a “War to End All Wars” and as a peace holiday.  Continue reading “Armistice Day Remembrance this Saturday Nov 11th”

Deportations & Forced Migrations in Honduras Talk Wed Oct 18th

 

 

 

 

 

Deportations & Forced Migrations:
The View from Honduras
with Neesa
Medina
WEDNESDAY Oct 18th 7PM

Heyward Street United Methodist Church, Fellowship Hall
2501 Heyward St. Columbia, SC

Neesa Medina speaks on the impact of US foreign policy on Honduras. Since the 2009 military coup in Honduras, murders and attacks against Honduran human rights defenders have reached alarming levels. The U.S. continues to send tens of millions of dollars in aid to the Honduran police and military who have been involved in human rights abuses. In addition, the U.S. backs neoliberal projects that lead to displacement and migration.

Neesa Medina is a Honduran feminist sociologist and she currently works as a Security and Gender Analyst at CDM (Centro Derechos Mujeres/Center for Women’s Rights) in Honduras. At the national level, she has been active on the issues of violence against women, reproductive rights and women’s rights. She helped draft and present the Alternative Report to the United Nations Committee for the Elimination of Discrimination against Women (CEDAW) and has testified as an expert on more than a dozen cases of women seeking asylum in the United States.

FREE and open to the public. Donations accepted in support of the speaking tour.
