Supporting the Troops Who Refuse to Fight

We’re a group of concerned community members, veterans and military families who support military objectors to illegal war and occupation and the policies of empire. Our People Power strategy weakens the pillars that maintain war and occupation in Iraq, Afghanistan and elsewhere by supporting GI resistance, counter-recruitment and draft resistance, which cuts off the supply of troops. We are autonomous from and independent of any political organization or party.

What’s the first thing that pops into your mind when you hear this string of names: Panetta, Hagel, Carter, Mattis, Shanahan, Esper, Spencer, Esper (again), Miller, Norquist, Austin? Well, “civilian control of the military” ain’t most likely at the top of your list....
That’s remarkable churn at the pinnacle of the nation’s military—less than a year, on average, in the job. At the same time, there have been only four chairmen of the Joint Chiefs of Staff. No wonder the uniformed military runs circles around their purported civilian masters when it comes to waging war and buying weapons. -- The Bunker blog, "Bleak Week: Civilians turnstiling through the Pentagon"
