The Minnesota Anti-War Committee began in December 1998 with 13 people who committed civil disobedience to protest the bombing of Iraq. We organize vigils, rallies, marches, educational forums, street theater, and civil disobedience actions to challenge the injustices of U.S. foreign policy. We believe in peace through justice, and we stand in solidarity with oppressed people here and abroad. As the U.S. war in Iraq continues, our most urgent campaign is to end the occupation. The AWC has also recently been subpoenaed in a supposed terrorism investigation as part of a broader attempt to repress political speech throughout the country.
