I was lucky enough to attend the “Peace Congress to End U.S. Wars at Home and Abroad” that took place in Washington D.C. on November 9th. I livestreamed the morning session that took place at the Capitol Hill Presbyterian Church 201 4th St SE (at corner of 4th St and Independence Ave). Event organizers included this in the invite:
This will be a general assembly of people and groups for peace and justice to determine how to build and strengthen the movement to end the wars at home and abroad.
While most of the day will be participatory, the morning will begin with a panel to discuss the current environment and obstacles and opportunities. Confirmed speakers so far are Ajamu Baraka of Black Alliance for Peace, Angela Bibens of Red Owl Law and Standing Rock, Bernadette Ellorin of BAYAN USA and Cheri Honkala of the Poor People’s Economic and Human Rights Campaign.

Thanks for joining the livestream if you have already but, if you haven’t seen it, you can catch up by watching the video below. I streamed the video live on YouTube, but I had to switch to Facebook because YouTube was too choppy. This is my Facebook livestream of the event:
