Asia-Pacific Militarization Resources and Alternatives

Asia-Pacific Militarization Resources and Alternatives

The Working Group for Peace and Demilitarization of Asia and the Pacific is comprised of leading U.S. peace movement activists and engaged scholars. Our purpose is to provide vision, resources and initiatives to contribute to the building of a U.S. peace movement that is capable of challenging U.S./Asia-Pacific militarization in their comprehensive contexts. In doing so, we will draw on the insights and collaborate as appropriate with partner organizations across the Asia-Pacific region.

Asia-Pacific pivot: a futile campaign to reinforce U.S. hegemony

In January, 2011, then Secretary of State Hillary Clinton announced a major U.S. foreign and military policy initiative: the diplomatic, economic and military pivot to Asia and the Pacific. This speech on the pivot by Joseph Gerson of AFSC’s Peace and Economic Security Program was prepared to help build peace movement capabilities to prevent war and to build shared security solutions to Asia-Pacific tensions.
