International Campaign for Awareness of King's Condemnation of U.S. Wars and the "unjust overseas predatory investments they are meant to maintain."

In remembrance of Martin Luther King, an international campaign to petition pastors of all faiths to condemn ongoing US wars in a half-dozen innocent poor nations in the Middle East as King would have mightily condemned them. King was murdered after fiercely condemning US wars maintaining predatory investments all around the world.

This 

King Condemned US Wars Revival was kicked off at Riverside Church, the site of King’s world shaking sermon condemning US wars, the "unjust overseas predatory investments they are meant to maintain," and the absurd lies that make them acceptable, with an internationally distributed petition to all pastors to lead us in King’s footsteps.

If you believe in Martin Luther King's dream and that King rightly condemned U.S. imperialist wars, please  add your support to that of former US Attorney General Ramsey Clark, author of the Civil Rights Acts. 


In this age of instant communication a few thousand King followers will awaken many millions to what King taught about these wars and their causes. The world wide beloved image of King will be the catalyst for people everywhere to realize their capability to make wars unacceptable. 

The http://kingcondemneduswars.blogspot.com/ campaign is in memory of Howard Zinn’s radio broadcasts’ call to echo Martin Luther King's sermon, Beyond Vietnam, a Time to Break Silence. Endorsed by Fellowship of Reconciliation, Pax Christi International, Pastors For Peace, Buddhist Peace Fellowship, Thomas Merton Anti-War Committee, Manhattan Mennonite Fellowship, Father Paul Mayer, Dr. Serene Jones, Union Theological Seminary, Rev. Emmanuel Char. McCarthy, Center Christian Nonviolence
Dr. Cornell West, Rabbi Michael Lerner, Rev. Bruce Southworth (see complete list)

King Condemned US Wars & Unjust Overseas Predatory Investments

                                                             
                                       
                                   Petition to All Pastors  
In remembrance of Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., we ask that you forthrightly and unequivocally condemn this blowing apart of our brothers and sisters and their children all around the world  just as King condemned it.

We ask further that you condemn, as King did, the lies used to justify the murder and maiming of families in their own homes and villages, and the subversion, destabilization and destruction of their homelands in the interests of predatory investments,

Finally, just as Dr. King, in his sermon Beyond Vietnam - a Time to Break Silence, recounted to us the history of the lies, from 1945 onward, used to trick Americans into supporting the Vietnam war, we ask you to expose the lies that have concealed secret arrangements for CIA covert crimes against humanity in the Middle East
, Africa and elsewhere in the world since 1953, - arrangements that always originate within a dominant financial element that rules our society through ownership and manipulation of 98% of all electronic and print media sources of information.

Reverend, please repeat Martin Luther King’s  public denunciation of American homicide abroad, currently being heartlessly practiced in six Muslim nations. King cried out, “The Greatest Purveyor of Violence in the World Today is My Own Government,” “Every man of humane convictions must protest, we must all protest.”  King warned us, “Silence is betrayal” "The hottest fires in hell are reserved for those, who in times of moral crisis, maintain neutrality."

King was silenced so the imperialist wars he condemned could go on. We are no longer silent. May our clergy lead us in prosecuting those promoting war.
