THE POWER OF LOVE SHALL OVERCOME
THE POWER OF HATE & WAR.
Over the past four decades, our public readings of Dr. King’s speech, as well as loudspeaker broadcasts have been held at the Liberty Bell, Phila. City Hall and in front of Lockheed Martin, in King of Prussia, an ongoing focus of our nonviolent direct action campaign. This year’s theme will be: “Honor the legacy of Dr. King; Make War No More!” with the message “NO WAR, LET UKRAINE LIVE”, with the hope and commitment that one day America will overcome its own racist history of war and empire, nuclear weaponry, and the endless celebration of white supremacy, greed and militarism around the world.
Resist “the evil triplets of American society: Racism, Materialism, Militarism.”
(Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., April 4, 1967, Riverside Church, New York, NY)
