Soldiers and Families Oppose the War in Iraq

Brecht Forum 03/11/2004.

Bring Them Home Now is a network of U.S. soldiers, their families and veterans who want to protect U.S. men and women in uniform. They believe that the war and occupation in Iraq is unnecessary and immoral and that under such circumstances the only way to be pro-soldier is to be anti-war. As U.S. soldiers and Iraqis die every day, the role of military families, active duty G.I.’s and veterans is key to building an anti-war movement. How is this opposition and the resistance of military people bringing anti-war politics to communities across the U.S.? What is the role of Bring Them Home Now in building a strong and enduring anti-war movement? Can it change the political landscape in the US? A panel of veterans, activists and military families will discuss this growing movement and it’s implications.


Michael McPhearson, a native of Fayetteville, NC, was a field artillery officer of the 24th Mechanized Infantry Division during Desert Shield/Desert Storm. His military career includes 6 years of reserve service and 5 years active duty service. Now living in Bloomfield, N.J. and a member of Veterans for Peace, Michael works as an activist and facilitator to help bring about social and economic justice. He is the father of an eighteen-year-old son who is planning to join the Army in September.

Dennis O'Neil is an associate member of Veterans for Peace and a postal worker from NYC.[8]

United for Peace and Justice Affiliation

In July 2007 Dennis O'Neil representing Bring Them Home Now Campaign was affiliated to United for Peace and Justice.[9]

War Moratorium project

O'Neil is a member of the Freedom Road Socialist Organization and active in the War Moratorium project.[10]

Commenting on Ferguson

It is just over a month since Darren Wilson, a Ferguson Missouri pig, gunned down Mike Brown, a Black teenager, in cold blood. It is stunning how much has happened—maybe even how much has changed—since that day. Here are some reflections on one of the most important urban rebellions in the US in the 21st century
To be sure, the people of Ferguson were lucky to have veteran local organizers, especially the radicals of the Organization for Black Struggle, on the ground, helping build the fightback. Even some of those who were drawn from elsewhere to help (as distinct from paper-peddling riot tourists) made contributions. But it was the residents of Ferguson and surrounding communities who deserve the credit.
So what do we do now? By we, I mean first and foremost reds, revolutionary socialists (and my comrades in the Freedom Road Socialist Organization in particular), but I include as well anyone who was outraged by the Ferguson murder and wants to insure that this wave of anger and protest does not recede entirely in the months to come.

Thanks to Alfreda Coachman Daniels for sharing this 40 year old historic photo from a 1976 anti-busing rally in Boston. Shaun King, from whom Ms. Daniels shared this blast-from-the-past photo, commented "The American flag may represent freedom to you but it meant something else to this man."[11]


Left Labor Project held a forum at 1199 SEIU, 310 W 43rd St, 14 January 2016, 18:00 till Thursday 14 January 2016.

The run-up to the Presidential primaries has unleashed a right-wing frenzy that's unprecedented in its naked scapegoating and repressive policy ideas. How do we analyze and respond to these developments, through our labor and community groups, and in the electoral arena? What new alliances, campaigns, and demands do we need?
