Stopping the Billionaires, the Bombers, and the War Machine--an interview with David Swanson


By davidswanson - Posted on 18 April 2013

By T. Forsyth, Rochester Indymedia

On April 11, 2013, Rochester Indymedia interviewed anti-war organizer, journalist, and blogger David Swanson who will be going to Syracuse, NY on April 26-28th for the “Resisting Drones, Global War and Empire" convergence. (See the FaceBook event: https://www.facebook.com/events/540569232649914/?ref=22.) David runs the website David Swanson dot org and writes, in a coalition effort, on War Is A Crime dot org. Currently, he works for Roots Action dot org and Veterans For Peace.

In this interview, David talks about his entry into the peace movement, the abolition of war, the sequester, and North Korea, among other topics.

Either we're gonna stop investing in billionaires, bombers, and the war machine, and start investing in people or we're headed for absolute disaster, be it climate disaster, nuclear disaster, or other military and economic and environmental collapse.  We have to change course.

Watch now!
