Organizer/AuthorBart Admonius
A century since World War I and a half-century since Vietnam, a group of authors will discuss new lessons learned and new activism underway. Speakers will include: Jackie Cabasso, executive director of the Western States Legal Foundation and co-chair of United for Peace and Justice; Daniel Ellsberg, Pentagon Papers whistleblower, lecturer, writer, activist, recipient of the Right Livelihood Award, and author of books including Secrets: A Memoir of Vietnam and the Pentagon Papers; David Hartsough, activist, co-founder of World Beyond War, and author of Waging Peace: Global Adventures of a Lifelong Activist, and Adam Hochschild, author of books including To End All Wars: A Story of Loyalty and Rebellion, 1914-1918.

World War I was advertised as a war to end all wars. Big nations have been trying to use war to end war for a century now with little success. When Martin Luther King Jr. spoke against the U.S. war in Vietnam, he proposed ending the institution of war, not mending it. Has the time come at last to end all war? This event is sponsored by World Beyond War and the Center on Conscience and War. Learn more: http://worldbeyondwar.org/100SF
