The Social and Ecological Imperatives of War Abolition

September 17, 2018 - 7:00 PM to 9:00 PM

Greta Zarro, the Organizing Director for World BEYOND War

The Beyond War and Militarism Committee  presents Greta Zarro, the Organizing Director for World BEYOND War and an organic farmer in Otsego County.

Greta has a background in issue-based community organizing. Her experience includes volunteer recruitment and engagement, event organizing, coalition building, legislative and media outreach, and public speaking. Before working for World BEYOND War, she held a full-time community organizing job with leading non-profit Food & Water Watch. There, she worked on issues related to fracking, genetically engineered foods, climate change, and the corporate control of our common resources. Greta describes herself as a vegetarian sociologist-environmentalist. She is interested in the interconnections of social-ecological systems and sees the profligacy of the military-industrial complex, as part of the larger corporatocracy, as the root of many cultural and environmental ills.

World BEYOND War, founded by well-known author and activist David Swanson, is a decentralized, global grassroots network of volunteers, activists, and allied organizations advocating for the abolition of the institution of war and its replacement with a culture of peace.

Beyond War and Militarism is a joint Committee of the Syracuse Peace Council and the CNY Solidarity Coalition.
This event is free and open to the public.
