Hello fans of Peace and Justice!

Below is an announcement I just sent out from Flying Focus Video 
Collective about the slimmed-down and delineated version of the Peace and 
Justice Works livestream featuring David Swanson. Never watched the full 
90 minute original? See the heart of the event in these two half-hour 
shows, with navigation available to different parts of the talk base on 
subject matter.

Hope everyone is having a good Americanized version of May Day (workers' 
day in most of the rest of the world).

Happy Labor Day Flying Focus supporters!

If you're looking for a way to be educated and, to some extent, entertained on
this holiday, check out our program from July 2021 featuring World Beyond War
Executive Director David Swanson. If you missed the original playbacks on Cable
TV/the web or want to see it again, you can hear David Swanson talking about how
US policies tend to perpetuate, rather than avoid, wars.

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.
