Today is the 19th anniversary of the attack on the Twin Towers in New York

City, on 9/11, in which 3,000 people lost their lives in a "blowback" we

attribute to US imperialism abroad.

It's a day in which candidates from both capitalist parties give somber

speeches about national security and openly call for an escalation of the

surveillance state, of ramping up military spending with a covert emphasis

on the build up of nuclear weapons that are now deployed in the field and

ready to fire at a moment's notice.

It's not just about the red phone in the Oval Office anymore.

We also conveniently forget about the "Other 9/11," or the US-backed coup

on the sovereign Chilean people that led to the suicide of democratically

elected president, Salvador Allende, yet another example of US imperialist,

regime-change policy.

In the name of national security, this country violates the civil rights of

Muslims, adds activists and journalists to no-fly lists and uses the

spectre of terrorism to justify the crackdown of against dissent at home.

Our constitutional right to redress grievances in peaceful protest is

threatened now more than ever.

This is not what a "free" nation should be like. And this situation is

bipartisan in its creation.

It's time to set the course aright and put the nation on a path toward true

peace both home and abroad, where whistleblowers like Julian Assange,

Reality Winner, Edward Snowden and others are given a proper place in

society as truth tellers.

But deep down, you know that this course correction will never come from

either capitalist party, with campaign coffers stuffed full of

contributions from the military industrial complex and from the

corporations that are conducting surveillance on us all...right now.

We won't even hear these issues on the debate stage, because the Commission

on Presidential Debates is really a private company which elbows out former

partners like the League of Women Voters, so they can control the public

discourse and keep our focus away from these real threats.

But Howie Hawkins and Angela Walker are still fighting to put the message

of peace and justice onto the public agenda, in spite of the mainstream

media trying to disappear this campaign and its platform.

In order to level the playing field, this campaign will have to make

significant investments into social media and improving our web presence.

We need to spend on strong video ads to tell our story and get the word out

to a public that is not hearing Howie's and Angela's voice.

Can you make a donation today to ensure we can put a professional ad onto

social media? [8]

As Howie says, "let's turn the US into the world's humanitarian superpower

instead of its global military empire. Providing aid instead of arms is the

best way to promote peace and security. It is time for the US to make

friends instead of enemies."

Can you donate today to ensure this message gets out to a wider audience?


In solidarity,
