The five guiding principles of Occupy Peace

  • Close foreign bases, bring troops home
  • Secure the Homeland
  • Military Works-Project: Troops rebuild America
  • Congress must vote to go to War
  • We the People will tell Congress how to vote

At noon on Sept. 20, 2015, Gerald Celente and the Trends Research Institute will launch Occupy Peace, a movement designed to reinstate the core values that gave birth to this nation and provide the tools for advancing peace and restoring prosperity.

What is Occupy Peace?

Occupy Peace is unlike any other peace initiative. Formally launching at a rally at noon on September 20, 2015, at the corners of John and Crown Street in historic Kingston, NY, this peace movement is designed to create a platform to hold elected officials accountable for senselessly prompting war. It will drive a nationwide initiative to put peace on the ballot.

How will this get done?

The institute will work with inspiring and peace-minded historians and other experts to create a program that provides the tools to make peace a driving force in the halls of government and in the living rooms of Americans. Most notably, the movement will promote these tenets:

» No foreign entanglements.
» Wage war only when imminent threat exists.
» Zero tolerance for illegal wars based on lies and retreaded failed reasoning.
» Build communities here, not foreign nations elsewhere.
» Let the people vote on whether to fund wars.

Why hold a rally?

A movement of this scope and importance needs a high-profile launch. We will use the event to introduce the core principles of Occupy Peace and to energize the initiative. Occupy Peace depends on all of us who stand outside of political dogma to take a stand, to do more than attend peace sit-ins and drum circles. We must understand how to act, how to fight for peace you. You may already be chanting, hoping, singing or praying for peace. Now, consider fighting for peace.

What can I expect at the rally?

The rally begins at noon at the intersection of John and Crown streets in historic Kingston, NY. The city’s closing down the streets to ally peace advocates to learn about Occupy Peace, to rally behind its core principles and to leave not only inspired, but ready and able to fight for peace. Gerald Celente will be joined by other prominent speakers, artists and musicians.
