There is no military solution in Syria. Join the Detroit Area Peace with Justice Network for a peace vigil calling for a diplomatic solution. War is never the answer - it's the problem. Signs will be provided. Dropping bombs is only adding to the violence and inflicting harm, if not death, on the civilians the President claims to be protecting. At the same time, he has proposed cuts to humanitarian aid and UN funding and ignored diplomacy while making it more difficult for refugees to enter the U.S. This is a recipe for failure for everyone except war profiteers. This is a special edition of the Ferndale Peace Vigil which is held weekly (since December 2002).

Gail Presbey's presentation will cover the beginnings of Gandhi's work for nonviolence in South Africa, and will follow the lives of women who helped to shape the early nonviolent movement in the country, like Sonja Schlesin, Sarojini Naidu and Cissie Gool, among others. Gandhi was very influenced by the British suffragettes as well as South African women's protests against the pass laws. The presentation will highlight a little known chapter of Gandhi's life, and it is important to understand him as someone intent on collaborations across racial, social and gender divides. Gail M. Presbey is Professor of Philosophy at University of Detroit Mercy. Her areas of expertise are philosophy of nonviolence and African philosophy, with current studies and research on Africa, Latin America, Mohandas Gandhi’s movement, feminism, and Pan-Africanism. She engages in interdisciplinary work that involves philosophy, world history, and political theory. She has engaged in research in Kenya, South Africa, Ghana, and India, having received a two-year J. William Fulbright Senior Scholar grant (Kenya) as well as subsequent Fulbright grants (India and Brazil).

Meet/greet, buy and/or have your book autographed by Dan Zak, Washington Post reporter and author of his new book “Almighty: Courage, Resistance, and Existential Peril in the Nuclear Age”.
Sunday, May 21, 2017 from 7-9pm
7-9pm
Dan Zak, Washington Post reporter and author of "Almighty: Courage, Resistance, and Existential Peril in the Nuclear Age" will speak about a trio of peace activists who infiltrated the "Fort Knox of Uranium" in 2012 to protest the existence of nuclear weapons. Their arrest, trial, imprisonment, and release is a moral thriller. They drew attention to the costly military-industrial complex that stockpiles deadly nukes. Zak asks, "What if they had been terrorists?" Why do the U.S. and Russia still have enough nuclear weaponry to destroy planet earth many times over?" So, how can we counter the greatest, immediate modern-day threat to humanity and the planet?
