UNAC urges everyone to come to Cincinnati, Ohio on Oct. 14, to support Palestinian Community leader from Chicago, Rasmea Odeh. On that day, arguments will be made in federal court on the appeal of her unjust conviction.
Rasmea was convicted last year of unlawfully obtaining American citizenship. She was put through a political trial masquerading as a criminal trial. In truth, she was put on trial for her decades of work for justice for the Palestinian people.
The appeal urges the court to reverse the conviction, arguing that Odeh was denied her right to present her complete defense, and that the trial court was wrong to allow prejudicial documents from Israel’s military court.
The case against Odeh is based on A 1969 conviction in an Israeli military court, which was the result of a false confession made after she was viciously tortured and raped by Israeli military authorities for weeks.

The Refugee Crisis: Made in the U.S.A.
The main cause of the refugee crisis in Europe is the U.S. wars and sanctions to orchestrate regime change in the Middle East, North Africa and Central Asia. The horrible images of hundreds of thousands of refugees from Syria, Iraq, Afghanistan and North Africa have inundated the airwaves non-stop. However, the context of the recent flood of refugees is never discussed. It is the U.S. and its NATO and Arab state allies that have caused the destruction that has destabilized the region and introduced sectarian divisions in the populations with the aim of dividing and controlling this oil-rich area. It is also the U.S., its allies and policies that created ISIS and Al-Qaida. In Syria, for example, this has led to an estimated 125,000 fundamentalist mercenaries from 80 countries with the same goal as the U.S. and its allies: regime change. [read more]
In the aftermath of the horrific white-supremacist massacre of nine African-Americans in Charleston, S.C., calls are being raised across the country for the removal of Confederate symbols from public places. But in Richmond, Va., the former capital of the slavery-defending Confederacy, during the 150th anniversary year of Emancipation and the end of the Civil War, prominent elected officials are defending their decision to spotlight racist symbols in an international sports event.

There are wars that the U.S. fights in its own name or jointly with NATO, or “the U.S.-led coalition” currently bombing Syria and Iraq with the justification that they are fighting against ISIS and Al Qaeda. In other instances, the U.S. stays in the background but fully supports its allies and proxies (Saudi Arabia and Israel) to destroy any independent movements that arise, attempts by governments to break from U.S. control or offer any possible advantages to competitors like Russia, China, and Iran. When the Saudis and the other oil-monarchs in the region choose to intervene to return a dictatorial puppet regime to power, the U.S. provides unconditional support. [read more]

REPORT ON THE 'STOP THE WARS AT HOME & ABROAD!' UNAC's NATIONAL CONFERENCE
May 8-10, 2015, Secaucus, N.J.
Against a background of seemingly endless U.S. wars abroad and growing domestic movements against racist police killings, low wages and devastating climate change, more than 400 activists gathered just outside New York City May 8-10 for a “Stop the Wars at Home & Abroad!” conference that ratified an Action Plan addressing both domestic and international issues.
Sponsored by the United National Antiwar Coalition (UNAC), the conference, held at a hotel in Secaucus, New Jersey, brought together a wide range of activists, from those who primarily concentrate on international issues to mostly younger activists in the emerging movements such as Black Lives Matter, Fight for $15 and environmental change.
Conference delegates came from 29 states, as well as Canada, Britain, Germany and Ukraine. A number of now-U.S.-based activists represented struggles in their home countries of Colombia, Haiti, Honduras, Iran, Mexico, Palestine, the Philippines, Puerto Rico, Syria and Venezuel also attened.
