Here’s the book I wrote that alerted people to the Kellogg-Briand Pact and the Chicago activist who made it happen and put forward, with others, a vision that could help us actually eliminate war: http://davidswanson.org/outlawry
In that book I advocated celebrating August 27. St Paul, Minn., has taken that up. There’s an event this year in Albuquerque. But I’ll be at the third-annual award ceremony for a related essay contest created by Frank Goetz and others in Chicago.
And if you can’t be there, you can organize your own event to mark the day evoked in “Last Night I Had the Strangest Dream” when nations said they’d never fight again (ask me to help!).
The Kellogg-Briand Pact bans all war, is acknowledged as in force by the U.S. State Dept on its website — and by the Pentagon just last month in its new publication
We have a long way to go to end war, and one way is to learn from the model of Kathy Kelly’s work. Join me and her in Chicago where Outlawry of War was born.
And make sure you’re part of World Beyond War.
