David Swanson: Prevent, Don't Provoke, World War III

David Swanson, Executive Director of World Beyond War, is an author, activist, journalist, radio host and campaign coordinator for RootsAction.org. On June 24 he spoke on a Portland, Oregon-based livestream event covering a variety of issues including the illegality (and madness) of making war, how environmental and police issues are part of the same ecosystem, so to speak, and how US policy seems set up to spark a third World War. He also spoke about the way that remote killing by drone is making war easier, and answered questions including about how to keep the peace movement strong. Swanson's books include "War Is A Lie." He was awarded the 2018 Peace Prize by the U.S. Peace Memorial Foundation and has been nominated for the Nobel Peace Prize.

The original 90 minute video was presented on Zoom via Youtube by Peace and Justice Works Iraq Affinity Group and can be found at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9Bqt6OkrGM0. The event was hosted by local media personality Ani Raven Haines. FFVC producer Dan Handelman, also a PJW member, produced the original and Flying Focus' two-part, 60 minute edited version.

Streaming made possible by a generous individual.
