ABOUT ST. PETE FOR PEACE
St. Pete for Peace is
a non-partisan organization providing peace oriented educational
events and services to the Tampa Bay community.
What do we stand for?
We are opposed to the U.S. occupations of Afghanistan and Iraq, and to
U.S. drone strikes in Yemen, Somalia, Libya and Pakistan, believing
such actions create enemies.
We believe in economic justice for the homeless/poor/working class,
equal rights for LGBT, and that immigrants are not 'illegal'.
We stand against Israel's military occupation of Palestine, which we believe is a crime.
We also speak out against patriarchy, police and state repression, and
stand in solidarity with peaceful, non-violent revolutions in Tunisia,
Yemen and Bahrain.
What do we do?
Among other things, we organize and participate in demonstrations on a local, statewide and national level (past actions). We have a free weekly film showing on topics that raise social consciousness (past films),
and a website that is designed to inform readers of topics not
accurately and objectively covered by the mainstream media.
We also have a Facebook page that allows people to connect and participate in what we do.
St. Pete for Peace also initiated and maintains the website OccupyArrests.com, which documents arrests made in conjunction with the Occupy movement. We also created and maintain the USinAfrica.com website which presents information regarding the little-discussed U.S. covert wars in Africa.
If you would like to be involved with St. Pete for Peace, we do not
