Want You to Join
NJ Youth United Against War and Imperialism
We have grown out of struggle
against war and cuts to education in New Jersey. We formed at a banner making
party on March 6, 2010.
Educate youth about war and its impact on its victims, including those being
killed and the youthful soldiers being ordered into combat. We will organize
educational meetings, leaflet distribution, music and theatrical presentations
and other means of communication and dialogue. We also will educate around the
issues of how a war-based economy contributes to joblessness, homelessness,
inadequate education and other economic crises domestically.
Attempt to shake our generation out of its disregard for the realities we are
facing and redirect it to an active, caring force united and working toward an
end to the wars and a reordering of priorities so that human needs are met
Provide a means of communication into all of the high schools and colleges and
to youth who are not in school in all of the cities and towns of New Jersey.
Connect youth up to other organizations that are struggling around these
Mobilize youth to participate in every aspect of planning through participation
in actions toward these goals, be they standing on a corner with our banner and
passing out fliers, to helping to arrange buses to national marches, to
supporting national days of action for education and other important issues as
well as social events like concerts, picnics, bashes and other fun ways to unify
into a stronger force.
Make youth a vital part of a mass movement aiming to make changes around these
issues of concern.
Why are we against war and imperialism?
Simply put, imperialism is the system powerful nations like the United States
use to control other weaker nations. Imperialism pursues the goals of maximized
profit for multinational corporations as well as exerting strategic and military
muscle into other regions of the world. War and occupation are the most extreme
methods of imperialism. Other means could include economic and political
manipulation, threats, secret and not so secret involvement in affairs of other
countries, sabotage, assassination, support for insurgent groups with weapons,
training and intelligence, blockades and sanctions and many other forms of
interference. If we want to prevent wars from occurring, we need to challenge
the system of imperialism which is constantly laying the groundwork for future
We want YOU to be part of our organization and our movement to transform
the youth into a force of history that will play the role that it should in
opposing war and imperialism and supporting a system that meets the needs of all
people, with justice and equality. Contact us: 908-881-5275 / email@example.com
